I absolutely heart a classic Reuben Sandwich. This recipe takes things up a notch by hugging the exterior in a skillet-crusted cheese blanket. POOF. Mind blown.
Serves: 1
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp. Ketchup
  • 1 small Dill Pickle, minced
  • Dash of Smoked Paprika (about 1 tsp.)
  • 1 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese
  • 2 Slices Seeded Rye
  • 2 tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • French Dressing, as needed
  • 4 Slices Havarti Cheese
  • ¼ lb. Corned Beef, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup Sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 tbsp. Lusty Monk Original Sin Mustard
  • 1 big handful of Arugula
  1. Shred the Swiss cheese and mix up the French Dressing and set them aside.
  2. Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle-in the shredded Swiss cheese and slather mayonnaise on the exterior sides of the bread. Place bread, mayonnaise side down, on the cheese in the skillet.
  3. Smear desired amount of French dressing on both sides of the sandwich and then cover each side with 2 slices of Havarti Cheese.
  4. Pile the corned beef, sauerkraut and arugula on one side and spread Lusty Monk Original Sin Mustard on the other side over the cheese.
  5. Once the Swiss has melted and started to brown (which will take about 6 - 8 minutes), carefully flip the cheese-mustard half over the other half of the sandwich. Continue to cook while folded together for 1 minute, then flip and cook the other side for 1 minute (or until cheese melts). Enjoy immediately!
