  • Rye bread or I like the Deli Swirl with Rye and Pumpernickel
  • Corned beef slices
  • Swiss Cheese slices
  • Your favorite sauerkraut drained very well in a towel
  • Thousand Island dressing
  • Butter
  • Optional: mustard mayo


  • While your griddle, frying pan or panini grill is warming up, butter one side of each piece of bread, and then with the butter side facing out, build your sandwich: dressing, meat, cheese and sauerkraut (and any optional ingredients).
  • Then toast for a couple of minutes on each side, or longer depending on the heat of your pan till it’s nice and lightly crispy, flipping once.
  • I also like to put the lid on my frying pan to keep the heat in so that the sandwich warms up nicely on the inside, and it helps the cheese get nice and “gooey melted.”
