Every now and then we eat something and think, “Hmm these foods aren’t all that appealing by themselves. But, then you put them all together and …magic!” Exibit A: Ruebens. Let’s break it down.
Rye bread. We both happen to love love rye bread, but it is a very strong flavor.
Corned beef. Eh…take it or leave it. Mostly leave it. (Unless it’s St. Patricks day, of course.)
Swiss cheese. Super stinky.
Sauerkraut. Need we say more?
And who the heck likes thousand island dressing? See where we’re going here?
BUT. When they are layered all together and slathered with butter and grilled to a warm crispy perfection, it is a thing of beauty. Suddenly salty, stinky and sour never tasted so good! Right?! Well, we think so! We both love the flavors of a reuben. One of our favorite meals is Reuben Hash which we make once a year. What we don’t love is all the calories that go with this favorite sandwich. So we put together a slimmed-down version.
