Reuben Sandwich Appetizer Recipe is an American sandwich usually served hot and as an appetizer. You can also have it as your snack.  It usually consists of corned beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss Cheese and Russian or Thousand Island dressing which is grilled between two slices of rye breads.

Remember to grill the sides of each bread slowly to achieve the golden brown and the crispy outside sandwich that you want. One good way to do this is to cook the Reuben Sandwich in an electric grilling machine, such as George Foreman Grill. It is an indoor grilling machine that provides a unique way of cooking both sides of Reuben Sandwich at once until the bread is nice and toasted. Another thing is that the cheese melts perfectly.
