Melted Reuben Sandwich

Roll out your favorite bread dough into a rectangle (it doesn't have to be perfect).
Layer in the middle turkey pastrami and swiss cheese.

I usually do 3 layers but today I only had enough stuff for two.
Cut slits in the side of the dough.
Fold up the flaps that you created to completely enclose the meat and cheese.
Make sure all holes are crimped together so it doesn't leak out.

Bake according to your bread directions. This was 350 for 15-20 min.
This is the yummy, gooey inside. So good. We have to now make two of these every time because the kids love it.
You could do any meat cheese combo (roast beef and provolone, ham and swiss, but our favorite is the turkey pastrami and swiss).
To make this a real Reuben you're supposed to put sauerkraut on top of the meat and drizzle with Italian dressing before you seal it up. I don't do sauerkraut and I forgot the Italian dressing.
I made this for lunch today so I took pictures. Many of you already have the recipe from the soup/sandwich swap.


  1. We make this sandwich a lot. We love it at our house. The roast beef provolone sounds yummy, I'll have to do that next time!

  2. I had this a few years ago when Liz made it. I love it!!!!

  3. Oh yum! I love this recipe. We were supposed to have this for dinner tonight, but now have other plans. I think we'll have it on Monday instead. Yum! I can't say it enough.
