How to Make Reuben Cocktail Appetizers


  1. Heat oven to 350^.
    With a rolling pin-flatten each slice of the bread and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in hot oven for 6 minutes then turn over each slice and bake for 6 more minutes. Remove from oven to cool.(leave oven on)
  2. Spread slices with thousand island dressing.
  3. Top each with a thin slice of corned beef(I used Budding original corned beef-two 2 oz. pkgs.) Fold each piece of meat in half then in half again.
  4. Cover each with sauerkraut(about 1 Tablespoon each)
  5. Cut the cheese slice to fit the bread and cover the sauerkraut..You can cut an exact size piece- then use pieces to patch remaining slices.
  6. Bake in oven for 4 to 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
