Ruben Rolls

Ruben Roll Ups photo null_zps853f1098.jpgWe love sauerkraut with hot dogs, pork dishes or Ruben Sandwiches. With German backgrounds on both sides of our families, we grew up learning to like dishes which included sauerkraut.

I recent bought thinly sliced deli corned beef as I was craving the taste of a Ruben Sandwich, but we were dieting.  So to cut out the carbs, I made "Ruben Rolls."  

They're all the same ingredients as a Reuben Sandwich, minus the bread.  Two to three of them rolled up with sauerkraut and topped with cheese were very filling, along with a side of extra sauerkraut and a green salad.

These would also make a nice appetizer or addition to a buffet table.

Ruben Rolls
Thinly Sliced Deli Corned Beef, allow two to 3 slices per person
Swiss Cheese or Pepper Jack Cheese slices or shredded
Canned Sauerkraut
Thousand Island Dressing ( mixture of ketchup and mayo)

Assemble rolls in a casserole dish and topped each with a 3/4-inch of sliced of Swiss cheese or two to three tablespoons of shredded cheese

Heat in a microwave oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts.

Estimated cost for 4 servings: $5.00 or less.
