Reuben sandwiches are a memorable experience and you either love them, or hate them. I must have loved them because I have been a vegetarian for 30 years and the memory of a reuben sandwich still sets my mouth watering!
1/3 cup Thousand Island Dressing or Dijon Mustard
12 slices Rye Bread
6 – 1 ounce slices of Swiss Cheese
3/4 lb (350g) thinly sliced cooked Corned Beef
1 – 16ounce (498ml) can Sauerkraut, well drained (drained and squeezed)
1/4 cup Margarine or butter, softened
Set oven to Warm or 200F
Set large 2 large skillets on to heat.
Throw drained sauerkraut into one skillet and heat through; turn heat off, leaving sauerkraut in warm pan.
Throw corned beef into the other skillet and heat through; transfer to heatproof bowl.
Wipe out the skillet.
Spread thousand island dressing or dijon mustard over 6 slices of bread.
Place a slice of swiss cheese on each of the dressed slices of bread.

Top with remaining bread slices.
Spread the top slice of rye bread with a bit of butter or margarine.
Place sandwiches, buttered side down in skillet, spread butter or margarine over top slices of bread.
