Reuben Sandwich

Last night we made a variation of the classic Reuben sandwich.  


We used rye bread, Swiss cheese, pastrami, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing.  I love sauerkraut, which is funny, because as a kid I thought it was vile.


All of this was grilled up and then we enjoyed it with clam chowder.


We have another, more unique variation in mind for another time ...

Friday already!  I'm excited to go and see Metric in concert tonight!  Then tomorrow we are going on a little road trip to see Gwar in Winnipeg.

What are you up to this weekend?  Have you ever had a Reuben sandwich?  What foods did you despise as a kid, but love now?

I have actually never had pastrami, but it looks good!

I've always wanted to veganize a reuben! Even though I don't think I've ever eaten one in my life, ha ha. :) I'm kind of sad about missing Metric, but it's a bit of a trade-off and I'm really jonesin' to see Mother Mother in December (in Alberta)!

I've never had a reuben. I used to think I hated sauerkraut, but now I'm pretty sure I would love it! I need to eat a reuben stat!

Obviously being a New Yorker I've had many Reuben's in my day and I would say ther'ye on my top 5 greatest sandwiches list! When I was a kid I hated rice pudding and now I pretty much think it's manna from heaven. I'm intrigued to learn of your next variation...

1. I love reubens.
2. I LOOOOVE Metric! I'm such a huge Emily Haines fan! I wanted to BE her in college. I have since grown up...a bit...not much ;)

I haven't ever had a reuben actually. Which is surprising as I love sauer kraut. now I can't really have one since I can't have the bread. But my family had them once at the lake, and they just made mine with corn tortillas instead of bread. Sounds odd, but it was actually really good!

I had my first Reuben sandwich this summer and LOVED it. I have to say, as a kid I HATED perogies and sour cream in any and all forms but now I can't get enough!!!

I've never had a Reuben...but I can't imagine wanting one as a kid. I was a picky little thing!
