Ingredients

  • 2 Slices Rye Bread
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Tablespoon Thousand Island Dressing
  • 4 Slices Swiss Cheese
  • 3-4 Ounces Corned Beef
  • ¼ Cup Sauerkraut Make sure to drain the liquid from the sauerkraut

Instructions

  1. Butter one side of each piece of bread. Making sure that all the bread has butter on it.

  2. On one of the slices, add 1 tablespoon of the thousand island dressing to the unbuttered side of the bread. Spreading it to cover all the bread.

  3. Add 2 slices of swiss cheese on top of the thousand island dressing.

  4. Place the corned beef on top of the cheese. I used 4 slices for my sandwich, this made sure that there was corned beef on all the bread.

  5. On top of the corned beef add the drained sauerkraut.

  6. Place the last 2 slices of cheese on top of the sauerkraut.

  7. Spread the last tablespoon of thousand island dressing on the unbutter side of the bread. Spreading to cover all the bread. Place the bread on top of the cheese buttered side up.

  8. Add the sandwich to a heated grill pan. Grill on each side for 2-3 minutes or until desired goldenness is achieved to the bread.

  9. Serve and enjoy.

When flipping the sandwich I will hold the top bread as I'm slowly flipping the sandwich.
