This is a deliciously messy sandwich, so you might want to eat it with a knife and fork!


  • 2 cups fresh sauerkraut, refrigerated and undrained
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 8 slices Gruyere cheese, or Swiss cheese
  • 1 lb. corned beef, cooked and sliced


  1. In a small pan, heat sauerkraut and juices; keep warm.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Butter each bread slice on one side.
  3. Place 2 slices, buttered side down, in skillet. Spread a layer of Thousand Island dressing on each slice of bread. Drain the warmed sauerkraut and spread evenly over the dressing. Arrange the cheese and corned beef in an even layer over the sauerkraut.
  4. Place the other slice of bread, buttered side up, over the cheese.
  5. Cook until the bread is browned. Turn the sandwiches over and brown the other side. Repeat with other sandwiches. Serve immediately.
