While I was putting tonight’s dinner together, Joe found it pretty funny that I was calling my sandwich a reuben.
He asked me, "So what exactly is a reuben?"
I said, "It’s a pastrami sandwich on grilled rye bread with Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and melted Swiss cheese."
Then he said in a confused tone, Aaaaand what are you making again?
"Um… a peppered turkey and provolone wrap with sauerkraut and Russian dressing?"
Well, whatever it is. It’s good.
The Non-Rueben Rueben Wrap (serves 1 not too traditional gal)
I started out by making my own Russian dressing with 1 Tbsp. light mayo, 1/2 Tbsp. ketchup, and a diced dill pickle.
I spread that on a large wheat wrap
And piled on some peppered turkey
On top of that I put some drained kraut (and took a few bites from the can straight because I’m gross like that)
Then on the tippy top is some provolone cheese.
Bake in the oven on 400 for about 7 minutes, and voila! The Non-Reuben Reuben wrap is ready.
I served mine with roasted eggplant and parsnip fries.
Have you ever had a Reuben?
What is your favorite sandwich/wrap combo?
