REUBEN SANDWICH SLIDERS
Hi everyone! Amanda back from Old House to New Home, sharing a fantastic Reuben sandwich recipe that my family can’t get enough of. Are you a fan of Reubens? It seems like one of those foods that you either love or hate. I honestly don’t know what’s not to like though because those savory flavors are a winning combination in my book!
I love messing around with sandwich combinations and have even turned our favorite philly cheesesteaks into macaroni and cheese! I love making sandwiches for parties and entertaining because they are always a hit with kids and adults and they are easy to eat with your hands while you’re milling around enjoying the party. I recently rounded up our favorite sandwich recipes and I can’t wait to add these Reuben Sliders to the list.
WHAT ARE REUBEN SANDWICHES MADE OF?
A Reuben Sandwich is traditionally made with Rye bread, savory corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and creamy thousand island or Russian dressing. It can be grilled in a pan with a little bit of butter, or served cold.
HOW TO MAKE REUBEN SANDWICH SLIDERS
I took our favorite Reuben sandwich and made it into mini slider form. This makes it so much easier for parties or when you want to serve a crowd. You can even assemble these ahead of time and bake right before serving! Reuben Sandwiches can also get a little messy, so this smaller slider size is easier to eat but still has so much flavor packed in.
- Split rolls in half (top half and bottom half, keeping them connected) and lay all of the bottom pieces in a casserole dish. I like to use Hawaiian Rolls for this recipe but you could also use just regular dinner rolls.
- Layer the bottom half of the sliders sliced corned beef and Swiss cheese.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine sauerkraut with Thousand Island, then spread on top of the cheese. Replace the slider roll tops.
- Combine melted butter, dijon mustard, mayo and a little bit of thousand island dressing and spread that on top of the rolls.
- Time to bake! The Reuben Sliders will take 12-15 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.
REUBEN SANDWICH SLIDERS TIPS
- You can definitely switch these up if you’d like and sub the corned beef with pastrami or turkey.
- I also love to use sweet Hawaiian rolls for my sliders but you can sub for any slider roll you would like. If you could find rye buns, that would be delicious!
- You make this almost like a layered casserole. Everything gets stacked together in a casserole dish and then you can cut them into squares for easy serving.
- The part of this recipe that really makes these Reuben Sandwich Sliders special is the topping. Right before baking, you pour this delicious tangy blend over the top and it cooks into the rolls. It takes these sandwiches from good to great and you will not want to skip it. I like to slather a little inside of each bun too for even more flavor!
I am not the most enthusiastic Saint Patrick’s Day celebrator, but you can bet that we will be enjoying these Reuben Sandwich Sliders that day and I hope you will be too!
