Hi my name is Sarah Rae Trover and I love me a Reuben Sandwich! It makes my top 5 list of favorite all time comfort foods but I have one large problem with making them at home — I don't really want a full loaf of rye bread hanging out for a week. This recipe fixes that and even makes them easy to eat at work or on the go!
While reading through the blogs yesterday I mentally tripped over this post from Simply Comfort Foods. It was immediately forwarded to everyone in my entire family and my husband and I even headed to the store with a short shopping list late last night.
The idea was simple. Fill egg roll wrappers with the same thing found in a Reuben sandwich and dip in the traditional dressing. It was genius. It was all of that meat-y, kraut-y goodness without the mess that's so often associated with things. The best part? They go in the oven. No fried foods here, just bake and eat.
In addition it means I don't have a loaf of rye bread hanging around the kitchen for a week. When cooking for two it's easy to feel forced to make 8 sandwiches and eat them all week or find other ways to put the loaf to use and although I like the taste of it, it might not carry the same joys on Wednesday that it had on Monday. What do you think of the idea? Are you as in love as I am?
