Lunch in a Hurry: Try This 15-Minute Reuben Sandwich

Here's everything you need for this hearty, savory homemade Reuben sandwich. This recipe takes 15 minutes total time.

Ingredients to Gather

3 tablespoons Thousand Island Dressing
2 (1/2-inch-thick) slices rye bread
1 1/2 ounces sliced Gruyère or Swiss cheese
1 cup sauerkraut, drained and squeezed of excess moisture
4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices pastrami or corned beef (about 4 ounces)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

Directions to Follow

Spread 1 tablespoon of the dressing on one piece of bread and top with half of the cheese, half of the sauerkraut, and all of the meat. Spread another tablespoon of the dressing over the meat and top with the remaining sauerkraut and cheese, in that order.
Spread the remaining tablespoon of dressing on the remaining piece of bread and place it on top of the cheese, dressing side down. Press firmly to close the sandwich, then evenly spread the butter on the outside of the sandwich.

Now, take a heavy-bottomed frying pan and heat it over medium heat, and then place the sandwich in the pan, using a spatula to press it down. Cook for about 4 minutes, or until the bread is crisp and has turned a golden brown color. Flip the sandwich and cook for another 4 minutes, or until the other side is also golden brown and crispy, and the cheese has melted and the sandwich is warmed all the way through.
