Montreal Reuben Sandwich

My favorite sandwich is a corned beef Reuben, but finding one in a restaurant that's done to perfection is challenging. The best one I ever had was in Montreal. This comes real close!

1 sandwich


  • 1 teaspoon salted butter, softened

  • 2 slices pumpernickel bread

  • 3 slices Swiss cheese

  • 2 teaspoons Thousand Island salad dressing

  • 4 slices deli sliced corned beef

  • ¼ cup sauerkraut, drained

  • 1 large dill pickle, sliced


  1. Preheat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.

  2. Lightly butter one side of each bread slice. Place buttered-sides down on the preheated skillet. Place 1 1/2 pieces of Swiss cheese on top of each bread slice, then spread Thousand Island on top.

  3. While sandwich halves are toasting, place corned beef on one side of a microwave-safe plate and sauerkraut on the other side. Cover with a dampened paper towel and microwave on high for 90 seconds.

  4. Remove bread from the skillet. Add hot corned beef and sauerkraut and close to form a sandwich.

  5. Serve with dill pickle.

Cook's Note:

Use the highest quality bread. You can use rye instead of pumpernickel.
