I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Reuben Sandwich

This is my once a year sandwich. I make one every St Patricks Day. Love them. The hint to a good reuben is buying a good quality corn beef.

(makes 2 sandwiches)

*1/3 cup mayonnaise
*2 1/2 tablespoons ketchup
*1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
*dash of salt
*dash of black pepper
*1/2 cup sauerkraut, drained well
*1 tablespoon butter
*4 slices ry bread
*8 slices deli sliced corned beef
*8 slices swiss cheese
*1/4 cup mayonnaise mixture

~In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, salt & pepper.
~Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (I make the dressing the night before).
~Heat sauerkraut up in microwave, just until warm.
~Lightly spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
~Put one slice of cheese on non-buttered side of two slices of bread.
~Spread desired amount of mayonnaise mixture over cheese.
~Next add 2 slices corned beef on each sandwich.
~Add 1/4 cup sauerkraut on each sandwich.
~Add second slice of swiss cheese.
~Top with remaining slice of bread, butter side out.
~Grill sandwich over medium heat, until golden brown, flip and grill until golden brown on other side.
