1 sandwich


  • 2 slices white or whole wheat bread

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • 2 slices process Swiss cheese

  • 1 tablespoon Thousand Island salad dressing

  • 2 tablespoon sauerkraut, drained

  • 1 ounce thinly sliced corned beef


  1. Spread butter on one side of one slice of bread. Place bread, buttered side down, in a skillet. Place cheese slices on top of bread, cutting cheese to fit so all bread is covered (overlap as necessary). Spread salad dressing over cheese; top with sauerkraut and corned beef.

  2. Spread butter on one side of the remaining bread slice. Place bread on sandwich, buttered side up.

  3. Cook sandwich over medium heat about 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom slice of bread is toasted and cheese begins to melt; turn sandwich. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until bottom slice of bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Makes 1 sandwich.


If you are making an additional sandwich, carefully add the assembled sandwich to the hot skillet. Cooking times may be slightly less.
