I have a series called Feeding a Farmer. It’s food that can be prepared in a few minutes to make a meal for those last minute meal times. To find out how this all originated, check out this link. Keep in mind, none of these foods are glamorous…they are fast…and not bad tasting.
Hubby and I are both HUGE fans of Reuben Sandwiches. If I am at a restaurant, chances are, I’ll order one.
I got to thinking why don’t I make them at home if I like them so much…and so Reuben Sandwiches have made it onto our lunch menu. They are quick and easy…not much harder than a grill cheese sandwich.
Take rye bread. Butter one side and put it on the griddle. Spread thousand island dressing on the other side. Load it up with corned beef (or turkey if you want a Rachel instead of a Reuben), sauerkraut and then Swiss cheese. I like to keep the kraut away from the bread so it doesn’t get soggy.
The I top it with a buttered piece of bread. From there it gets grilled exactly like a grilled cheese sandwich.
Add a pickle and salad or pickle and some chips and who needs a diner?
This is just a quick simple easy recipe for how I feed my farmer.
