I’ve had a terrible case of puppy brain the past few weeks, meaning not being able to think about anything but puppies as well as my usual two-second attention span. We’ve been impatiently waiting for months until we had time to responsibly adopt and yesterday we finally brought this beautiful girl home!
Everyone, meet Scout!! I am head-over-heels in love with this little sweetheart. She’s still kinda shy but getting used to being inside a house and learning how to play with toys. Utterly in love with how she already follows us around the apartment and the little piggy grunting noises she makes when she’s sleepy. ♥
I had one of my favorite recipes planned for today but I just couldn’t tear myself away from that adorable face to make & write up the post it deserves. So today, we’re having a sliiightly lightened-up version of the reuben I’ve been craving all week.
I love big melty reuben sandwiches, but they’re always on the pricey side at restaurants. Why? Corned beef isn’t the cheapest meat but it’s just five ingredients. Super simple to toss together quickly so we can get back to the most important thing in life: cuddling the puppy.
Just ask for thin-sliced corned beef & two thick slices of swiss cheese at the deli counter for the perfect portions. I bought a small loaf of rye bread and most of it went straight into the freezer for the next time I have a reuben craving!
- 2 thick slices rye bread
- 7 oz. sauerkraut drained & pressed dry
- ¼ cup fat-free thousand island dressing
- 6 oz. corned beef
- 2 slices swiss cheese
Preheat oven broiler.
Toast the rye bread on the middle rack while the oven is heating – check frequently and remove when golden brown.
While the bread is toasting, stir together the sauerkraut and thousand island.
Remove the toasted bread from the oven and set on a baking sheet. Pile the corned beef evenly on each slice and top with the sauerkraut mixture.
Broil for 3-4 minutes until warmed through. Place cheese slices on top and broil for another minute until cheese is bubbling.
Serve hot straight from the oven.
