There is something really, really good about a toasted, melty Reuben sandwich…. mmmm delicious slices of pastrami, gooey melted Emmental cheese, spicy dressing and sauerkraut all tucked up in crisped rye bread. Just so good! 

Reuben toasted sandwich ingredients

  • 2 slices of rye/spelt or wholegrain bread
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 4 thin slices of pastrami
  • a handful of grated Emmental cheese
  • spoonful of sauerkraut
  • 1 tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tsp hot chilli sauce
  • splash of Worcestershire sauce

How to make a Reuben toasted sandwich

  • Heat the toastie maker – I use a Breville
  • Mix up the spicy dressing – stir together the mayo, tomato ketchup, hot chilli sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Butter the bread
  • Place one slice of bread – butter side down into the toastie maker – load up with a spoonful of the spicy dressing, pastrami, grated cheese and sauerkraut – add the top slice of bread – again butter side out.
  • Cook the toastie – squeeze the toast maker closed and cook for around 4-5 minutes until the filling is piping hot and the bread golden brown.

Make a Reuben toasted sandwich your way

  • Skip the spice – and use ketchup instead of adding the hot chilli sauce.
  • Don’t fancy sauerkraut – then skip it and try chutney instead.
  • Use different bread – switch the rye/spelt bread for any you fancy.

How to serve a Reuben melt toasted sandwich

  • We love this as an easy lunch with a glass of juice.
