Easy to make and very tasty. The nice thing about these are that they are a little more filling than most other apps. Thanks

These are so good. I did half without sauerkraut for those guests that don't care for it. They were very easy to assemble. Several guests asked for the recipe and said that they liked these better than actual Reubens. These will appear on the menu of my next gathering! Thanks for the great recipe.
