I think its safe to say these are what dreams are made of. I love me a good saucy sandwich and what better way to entertain than to shrink one down into a bite-sized package of classic meets chic, wrapped up with a whole lot of de-de-liciousness.
Not only do they meet the standards of hearty and tasty for your casual affair – and simple & chic for a sophisticated celebration – but they are such a crowd pleaser and so easy to put together that you can enjoy them for literally any type of occasion in three simple steps:
- Rye cocktail bread (can be found in the deli section of your grocery store)
- Deli sliced corned beef
- Sauerkraut, drained
- Thousand Island dressing
- Swiss cheese
Butter one side of the bread, place on waxed paper and then assemble the remaining ingredients on top.
Heat an oven-proof saute pan to medium and place the Reubens in the pan just until the bread is toasty.
Place the (oven-proof) saute pan into the oven under the broiler for just a few minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly or you can hit them quickly with a kitchen torch.
4. Enjoy (quickly, they go fast!)
