    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)
