Blue Ribbon Recipe

This really tasty appetizer recipe takes the flavors of a Reuben sandwich and wraps them inside flaky puff pastry. Once baked, the puff pastry gets nice and crispy. An easy football appetizer because you can scale the recipe depending on how many people come over to watch the game.
