      Sue, your sandwich was really filling and delicious...better than any famous deli or pub could make for me! But at 71.4 grams of fat I had to make a few changes...low fat thousand island... benecol to butter the bread...2 oz. of corned beef instead of 4oz...1 slice of deli swiss divided into 2 pieces. If it tasted this good with all the lower fat changes...I can only imagine what it tastes like fully loaded! I also appreciated your clear instructions on how to assemble the sandwich. I served the sandwiches with red seedless table grapes...never got to sit down...too many requests for more!

      Sue I have never made my own Reuben sandwich and this was perfect! My daughter never had a Reuben sandwich and loved it. Thank you very much for the recipe. I made it exactly as written. My sister had given me a bunch of corn beef and it being St. Patrick's day I thought of Reuben sandwiches and couldn't of picked a better recipe.
