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?? I have had people argue with me about this on several occasions. Russian dressing is red! It’s a tomato-y vinegar-y dressing with no chunks. Thousand Island has mayo, ketchup and pickles.
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!!
Make the bread dough, and after the second rise, form into large discs (about the size of a small plate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spoon about 2 tbsp of corned beef, 1 tbsp of cheese, 1 tbsp of sauerkraut and green onion in the middle, and carefully pull up all edges of the dough to form a ball, making sure to cover all fillings. Continue with remaining dough to use all of the beef, cheese and sauerkraut.
Brush each pillow with beaten egg, sprinkle with salt and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
