With the “big game” fast approaching… thoughts about what to serve I have another fresh idea for game day food…. these Mini Reuben Sandwiches are just the ticket… they’re easy to assemble…. and quick to grill… if you have a panini maker… all the better!
Serve them with oven baked fries… side salads like coleslaw, macaroni salad and potato salad… don’t forget deli dill pickles… and you have a terrific little “game day buffet”. Be sure to serve them with that wonderful Russian Dressing! They will go well with other finger foods as well.
Use “cocktail” sliced bread… you can find it by the deli section of the grocery store.
These can be assembled ahead.. and just grilled when you want to serve them.. they will grill quickly… so the cook doesn’t have to miss out on any of the game action.
I used Sargento Baby Swiss cheese… they are in squares… I cut each square into 4… they fit perfectly on the small bread… I used 2 slices per sandwich.
I folded each slice of corned beef in half and in half again… then cutting it to fit the bread… using the “scraps” on the next little sandwhich.
Make your own Russian Dressing… it’s quick and easy… once you’ve made it.. you’ll never go back to store bought again! Click the link to get my recipe.
I hope you try these tasty little sandwiches!
Recipe: Mini Reuben Sandwiches
All you need:
Cocktail pumpernickel or rye bread
Sliced corned beef
Softened butter or margarine
All you have to do:
Put the corned beef in foil and place on a baking dish and heat in a 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes until warm.
Put the sauerkraut in a microwaveable dish and heat on high about 4 minutes until warm.
Spread the margarine on 1 side of each slice of bread.
Flip it over and spread Russian dressing on the other side.
Layer corned beef… then a little sauerkraut … then 2 slices of Swiss cheese .. then put a piece of bread on top (Russian dressing side down).
Put the sandwiches (I did 4 at a time) on a hot Panini maker.. and put the lid down.. they should take only a minute or two until the bread is toasted and the cheese melts.
*If you don’t have a Panini maker… grill them on a hot grill pan. Use two spatulas to flip them over.
Place them on a platter and serve with additional Russian dressing.
