These were a huge hit! I'm too lazy to stack everything up, so I just mixed all of the ingredients together (except the bread), using diced corned beef and shredded cheese. Then I dropped a tablespoon or so on each slice of bread and broiled. Easy and delicious! They also tasted good at room temperature, so you can make them ahead if you want.
I love the classic Reuben sandwich, but these appetizers are even better! Since they have less bread, you can taste the other flavors better, and they are healthier since they are broiled rather than grilled with lots of butter. You can serve them anywhere from a Super Bowl party to a shower (although I would recommend eating with utensils at the latter since the sandwiches can get messy).
I have been making these for years, and usually I by the cheap corned beef (Budding brand) and use siccors to 'shred'. the beef. I also use some shredded swiss cheese. I mix the beef, cheese and kraut together - adding enough dressing to make it creamy. Then I scoop a tablespoon full onto the mini rye slices and top with a small square fo swiss cheese... and bake! SOOOO GOOD!
I make these but not open faced. I use a small amount of yellow mustard in place of the Thousand Island serving the Thousand Island on the side. I lightly butter the top and bottom of the rye bread and place butter side down on a cookie sheet cover with foil and heat in a 350 oven until heated through. They turn out like grilled reuben sandwiches
We have made these several times and they are ALWAYS a huge hit. Tips: Toast the bread a bit first or they can get soggy. Also, I think using thinly shaved corned beef makes them easier to assemble. If the meat is too think it doesn't want to stay folded. (I guess you could just cut it into little pieces and stack them up but then that adds another prep step.) The biggest problem with them is if you make a ton of them you need a really LARGE tray for transporting them. They don't do well stacked on top of each other.
Love These Little Sandwiches! Made them for some friends for a big football game viewing party. Everyone of them, and I made a bunch, were gone! Even the ones who didn't like Reubens had to try them cause they looked so good. Easy to make and look like something gourmet. Only drawback, they are much better right out of the oven. After they sit a while, definitely reheat a bit.
