Hot Corned Beef and Pastrami Melt

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 8 slices deli sliced corned beef
  • 4 slices pastrami
  • 8 slices swisscheese
  • 1 cup sauerkraut, drained
  • 1/2 cup thousand island dressing



  • Preheat a large skillet or griddle on medium heat.
  • Lightly butter one side of bread slices. Spread non-buttered sides with thousand island dressing. On 4 bread slices, layer 1 slice Swiss cheese, 2 slices corned beef, 1/4 cup sauerkraut and second slice of Swiss cheese.
  • I drained the sourkraut but didn’t rinse it, because we like the tangy taste of the sourkraut.
  • warm the sourkraut in the microwave first
  • Grill sandwiches until both sides are golden brown, about 15 minutes per side. Serve hot.
