Two of my favorite meals are eggs benedict (of all types) and Reuben sandwiches. I had leftover rolls and Reuben ingredients so this was an awesome twist and great use of the leftovers!! SO SO SO GOOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I suggest topping with Sriracha too if you like a little spice.)

This eggs benedict recipe may not be for everyone. If you love a Reuben sandwich, though, then you'll really enjoy this decadent breakfast. It has all of the flavors of the famous sandwich, spun into a breakfast or brunch dish. The base is a hearty breakfast bun. Classic ingredients of sauerkraut, corned beef, and Swiss cheese are layered on top. Top it off with an over easy egg and a drizzle of Thousand Island dressing and you have a hearty breakfast.
