Avocado Reuben

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

As time keeps moving us closer to our move date, I am beginning to think of many strange things I am going to miss.

One of them is a local deli next to our house. They serve the most AMAZING sandwiches I have ever eaten. I understand this is a big statement, but it’s true. The more I think of how much I will be missing having weekend lunch at the corner deli, the more I realize I need to learn to make at least one great sandwich…and so I present, the Avocado Reuben! The perfect addition to your winter menu.

What you’ll need:

Whole-wheat Sourdough Bread, preferably homemade

Thousand Island Dressing, preferably homemade

Sauerkraut, preferably homemade



The process:

Begin by adding a generous portion of butter to a cast iron skillet (or other fry pan). Melt over medium heat.

While you wait for the butter to melt, slice your bread (you’ll need two slices for each sandwich) and butter one side of each slice. Once the butter has melted, place the slices into the fry pan, butter side down. Layer sauerkraut, dressing, and avocado. Place the second slice on top of everything. Carefully flip three minutes into cooking. Allow the second side to cook until brown and the fillings are heated through.

Serve warm.

Results: This was an AMAZING cool weather sandwich. I’m not say it is worthy of the corner deli, but it will be good enough to tide us over until we are able to return to Denver and our favorite corner Deli.

For those of you wondering who has their own homemade bread, dressing, and kraut- I do- and yes I will be sharing as time allows!

    This looks so delicious! Just recently tried a portabella reuben and fell in love; who knew such a crazy assortment of foods would taste so good together?! Will try soon!
