Get ready to take a trip back in time 'cause this 1950s diner classic is a nostalgic favorite. Our Reuben Melts taste just like the kind you'd find at your local deli, but we love our version more since you can customize it just how you like it!

What You'll Need:
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 8 rye bread slices
  • 1 (6-ounce) package Swiss cheese slices
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced ham
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. 
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine mayo, ketchup, relish, and red pepper. Stir together coleslaw mix and 1/2 cup mayonnaise mixture.
     
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture evenly on 1 side of each bread slice; top 4 slices evenly with ham, coleslaw mixture, and cheese. Top with remaining bread slices.
     
  4. Place sandwiches on prepared baking sheet. Spray top side of each sandwich with cooking spray. 
     
  5. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until bread is golden and cheese melts.

Where is the picture for this recipe as well as many others without a picture. We cooks want to see that which we are attempting to make. Please provide a picture with each recipe.

Hello! We are working on making pictures available for all of our recipes. We have thousands of recipes (some over 20 years old!), so it does take us some time to have a picture for each one, but we'll be sure to add this one to the top of our list. Thank you for your comment! :)

Not in my childhood...where's the sauerkraut, corned beef and swiss cheese

Nope, not a reuban at all. Where's the corned beef and tangy sauerkraut?

Sounds yummy, but this is NOT a reuben!!
