8 sl Rye bread with caraway seeds
1/4 c Unsalted butter; softened
3/4 c Thousand Island dressing
1/4 lb Corned beef; thinly sliced
1 c Sauerkraut; well drained
1/2 lb Swiss cheese; shredded

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Lay out the bread slices and spread 1 side with butter. Turn and spread other side with Thousand Island Dressing. Lay meat on the dressing spread side of 4 of the slices, tucking in any overhang. Spread sauerkraut evenly atop the corned beef, then distribute the cheese over the sauerkraut. Top with remaining bread slices, butter side out, and press down tightly. Heat large nonstick skillet or griddle to medium heat.

Working in batches if necessary, fry sandwiches until golden, about 5 minutes, pressing down several times with spatula. Carefully turn and cook pressing down, until second side is golden and cheese has melted, 3-4 minutes.

Turn again, and cook 2-3 minutes more. Nutritional info per serving: 705 cal; 50g fat(64%), 36g carb

Made these for an easy weeknight dinner and they were fantastic! I heated up the corned beef in a skillet before putting it on the bread. Yummy! Will def be making these again!

Sorry, I made two recipes tonight and put review under the wrong one.

Yummy! Made on panini press, rather than frying pan, and used honey butter rather than regular butter. Scrumptious!
