This recipe can be cut in halves for sandwiches or sliced into sandwich rounds for appetizers. Very easy to make, but looks and tastes impressive. Can be served hot or at room temp, so its great for football parties. Goes great with cold beer.

This was very simple to make. I thought it was good (although it didn't really satisfy my reuben craving), but every one else thought it was great and several asked for the recipe. I used the Pillsbury Thin Pizza Crust...the French Loaf just seemed like too much bread. The recipe is very forgiving and easily modified to different tastes/occasions. Overall, great recipe...THANKS!
OMG...this is an awesome recipe. My supermarket did not have the french bread so I used the pizza dough as someone suggested. My boys don't like reubens so I made the reuben for my husband and me. For my boys I used roast beef, swiss and honey mustard. They loved it! Thanks!
It was very pretty and tasted fine.
