Reuben Stuffed Rye Pillows

Sharing is caring!

OMG how I love a good Reuben….

They have pretty much always been my very favorite sandwich, especially with lots and lots of Thousand Island dressing.

That leads me to pose a question to you-

Do you call it Thousand Island or Russian?? There have been occasions, several, actually when people have argued with me about this.

Russian dressing is RED – It’s a tomato-y vinegar-y dressing with no chunks.

Thousand Island is SALMON in color – It contains mayo, ketchup and pickles, etc. as well as other preservative shit unless you make it at home.

I mean…I thought everybody knew that.

These are made with a homemade rye bread recipe that I found – and by the way the caraway seeds are my very favorite part.

Then I stuffed them with chopped corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing, of course.

They’re kinda like a grown up Reuben hot pocket on steroids. Make sure you have plenty of Thousand Island on hand to dip them in!!
