My mom has always made this slightly different than the usual Reuben. I typically 'load' it, we don't like skimpy sandwiches. It is a huge hit; my kids, friends and especially my husband loves it!

  • Increase the heat to medium, and cook until browned on the bottom. Turn sandwiches over, and cook until golden on the other side.

my original recipe stated to use sandwich spread more like thousand island. I think you will find this makes it better than the Miracle Whip. Read More

My son-in-law made this and everyone seemed like it but the sodium content was much too high for my reduced sodium blood pressure diet. What a shame. Read More

Yes Robin this is truly a man's man kind of sandwich! I too used Thousand Island dressing in lieu of the Miracle Whip and it added the tang that's typically associated with a reuben sandwich. Your mom did a great job and we thank her!! Read More

This was very good. I like it alot better than the traditional reuben and I really like Reubens! I used pastrami in place of the corned beef because that is what I had on hand. Will absolutely make again. My kids even liked it and they are not big reuben lovers. Thanks Mom! It was Great. Read More

This is a delicious recipe. I used low fat Thousand Island dressing and sprinkled lemon pepper on the buttered outsides of the sandwich before grilling-- my husband LOVES this sandwich. Read More
