    2Bleu's Note:

    This is an awesome reuben that uses a unique cole slaw rather than saurkraut. This is a wonderful taste sensation for Reuben lovers. We think you will be as amazed as we were. We tagged Oven-Grilled Reuben Sandwiches in the 'Make it Healthier' game and did just that. We revised it to an 'open-faced' sandwich and brought down the calories from 837, the fat from 50.5, and the carbs down from 52g. Thanks Chef #382123 for such a great perk to an old favorite.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to middle position, place baking sheet on rack, and heat oven to 450 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together vinegar and apple cider mix till dissolved. Add coleslaw, cover, and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until coleslaw is tender.
    3. 3
      Remove lid and simmer until liquid has evaporated, 1-2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray one side of each bread slice with non-stick cooking spray and turn over onto the parchment (so butter side is down).
    5. 5
      Combine mayonnaise and mustard in small bowl. To each slice, spread mayo mixture, followed with 1 slice of cheese, the slaw, the corned beef, and then top with another slice of cheese. Bake until toasted, about 10 minutes.

      Great Reuben variation! I liked making the coleslaw/sauerkraut myself. I added an extra handful of cabbage into the pot because it was cooking down so much it didn't look like enough for two sandwiches. When I put the sandwiches together I only ended up using about 2/3 of the meat and 1/2 the cheese called for. I shredded cheese off a block instead of using slices. Lastly, I just can't give up my usual Reuben sauce (mayo, chili sauce, horseradish) so we subbed that for the mayo/mustard suggested in your recipe. I think overall using less cheese and meat brought this "lighter" Reuben down even farther! Made for PRMR Tag Game.

      This is a great variation on the classic Reuben sandwich. Instead of the tartness of sauerkraut, the sweet and tangy cole slaw mixture was a nice change. It is also really easy to make, and I will definitely be having this again (and without the guilt of a regular Reuben)! Thanks for posting, 2Bleu. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.

      If you like Reubens this is a must to try! I can not say enough about this sandwich. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I made it as an open face, thus eliminating the calories etc of 1 slice of bread. Thanks for sharing your revision.
