I am still hot on the open-faced sandwich kick. Partly, I am trying to reduce the carbs and hopefully in turn reduce a few pounds. Also, I have found a little cheese on top and a short stint in the broiler makes such a yummy sandwich.

For some reason, when I make reuben sandwiches at home, I always substitute coleslaw instead of sauerkraut. I love a traditional rueben and enjoy sauerkraut but it is just one of those things that doesn’t make it into my kitchen. A little corned beef, thousand island dressing and rye bread and you have yourself quite a lunch.

Pseudo-Rueben Sandwich
rye bread
corned beef
swiss cheese
thousand island dressing
(or make your own with equal parts mayonnaise and ketchup with some diced pickles added)


Spread the bread with the thousand island dressing. Top with corned beef, coleslaw and then top with cheese. Broil or toast sandwich to melt cheese on top.
