Chris's Reuben Sandwich

"My husband, Chris, lived in Germany and came up with his own version of a Reuben sandwich. Just adjust the ingredients to your own preferences! The horseradish gives a special "kick" of it's own! We prefer the Sarah Lee multi-grain/dark bread for this sandwich. The trick to this sandwich is using all fresh ingredients (fresh sliced deli meat and provolone etc.) Yummy!"

  1. Oh my goodness this has got to be the best sandwich I have ever had! The combination of everything is perfect. My husband insisted I make him a 2nd sandwich and kept repeating "oh, this is sooo good!" It was my first time eating anything with sauerkraut and I was amazed at how perfectly all the ingredients blended together. This will be a regular in our house now! Many thanks for posting!
  2. This was simple and easy to prepare hot sandwich. We made ours with dijon mustard as the recipe called for, but in the future we may opt for a stone ground brown mustard (personal preference). The horseradish sauce is a wonderful flavor.


Where to begin? I always have a hard time not sounding like a broken record on "about me" sections. I am a mom to three wonderful children. I am a mom to three kiddos, have a wonderful fiance, and we love to cook! ?My children have been taught at a very early age how to cook and we take turns cooking for the family. I absolutely love (now because I can get on here and search for simple recipes for the younger children and more advanced recipes for the older kids (including my oldest boyfriend!). Usually once a month on a weekend we have what we call "around the world" night. I cook authentic (at least as close to as possible) dishes from another country. We all enjoy this and it's a family tradition. Another thing we do monthly that is a family tradition is our "family movie night". We make finger foods and watch movies as an entire family. It's not uncommon to see 3 or 4 types of homemade buffalo wings and sauces, meatballs, and homemade dips for veggies on the table on movie night. I LOVE that recipezaar meets my needs for all of our "family traditions"!!!!
