    Spread 1 teaspoon butter over each top slice of bread. Place sandwiches, butter sides down, in skillet. Spread remaining butter over top slices of bread. Cook uncovered over low heat about 10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Turn; cook about 8 minutes longer or until bottoms are golden brown and cheese is melted.

Oh my gosh. Can you believe my mom says she has never had a Reuben?! That is so funny and your pic looks so delicious says dad. Now he wants one. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO - Bacon

I like Reubens too! Only without the bread, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing. That just leaves the cheese, corned beef and butter, right? ;-)

Yummers the 2 leggers love Reubens. Mom has a recipe for reuben burgers and it is quite yummy smelling. Everything that is in this except for corn beef

They are one of my favorite sandwiches! A local family restaurant makes fabulous Reuben sandwiches :)

That sandwich is making us all hungry. Mom says she loves corned beef and cheese but she might have to leave out the sauerkraut - she is not a fan:(

Yum. I like Reuben sandwiches. I'm surprised by the cheese and corned beef prices. At the store I work at, not sure of the brand names but our Swiss cheese is $4.99 a pound and corned beef is $7.99

That's a sandwich Cupcake would totally steal! It looks really tasty.

My family is pretty much all German and I've been a bit of a black sheep from the beginning because of my food tastes. No Sauerkraut (though I didn't dislike it when we went to Germany when I was in elementary school), bratwurst ... not a fan of wine ... maybe I'm adopted?!

I wish I had some of that sandwich right now!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! How do you fit that into your mouth with 6 slices of bread??!! TW is in awe. She may have had a reuben once when her ex-boss took her to Carnegie Deli years ago.

Dad and Mom love Reubens, but they have never made them at home, and Mom rarely orders them because of the number of calories. How does Mom Sharon make it without bread? And now our mom wants one as well. Hugs, purrs, prayers and love to all. Mau sends his beloved wife a quadrillion smooches and love forever and ever.
