Ever find yourself wondering how to make a Reuben sandwich with some style? Some of the biggest and best delis serve their Reubens open-faced, just like in this recipe that we got from a deli in Central New York. We loved these Open Faced Reuben Sandwiches  and we had to pass along the recipe for you to enjoy! There's something about this sandwich that just makes your mouth water. 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 1 pound sliced deli corned beef
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 8 slices (6 ounces) Swiss cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Arrange the bread on two baking sheets. Spread dressing mixture on each slice. Top each with corned beef, sauerkraut, and a slice of Swiss cheese.
  4. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until heated through and the cheese is melted. Place 2 pieces on each plate and serve open-faced.

Test Kitchen Tips

  • You might want to use only half of the Thousand Island dressing on the sandwiches before baking them. Then just top each slice with a dollop of dressing before serving. Our mouths are already watering!
