Mini Ruebens

17 Mar

mini reubens

All the corned beef is on sale now so take advantage of it.

Two two pound corned beef roasts

One recipe of thousand island dressing

1/2 can drained sauerkraut

One pound loaf of sliced rye bread

1/2 pound Swiss cheese

Mustard for dipping

Cook your corned beef according to the package directions

My meat simmered for several hours.

You can tell when its done when the meat pulls apart easily.

Drain the water and cool the meat.

Now I take the meat and ruff chop it in the food processor

Don’t make a paste just do a ruff chop so when you eat the small appetizer you don’t have to bite into a piece of meat.

Set aside

Cut all your bread into 2×2 squares

Place all the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet.

You will need two sheets

Place one teaspoon of the thousand island dressing on each square

Layer one rounded teaspoon of the corned beef or a little more.

Layer 1/2 teaspoon drained sauerkraut

Top with a 2×2 slice of Swiss cheese

Bake in a 350 degree oven till the cheese is melted about 5 to 10 minutes. I like the cheese just a little melted.

Serve with different mustards, cole slaw and chopped onion

These things disappear so fast and they are also great as leftovers.

This can be made in the morning and refrigerated till you are ready to bake them.

The thousand island dressing is one cup of mayonnaise, 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish. Mix well.

Put four leftover squares together and place a fried egg on top for a very easy morning after breakfast.
