Stuffed Reuben Burgers!
We make a big batch of these up and freeze them on a baking sheet, bag them up in zipper bags, and store in the freezer... Then when we are ready to have them again... we thaw them.. fry them and top them with fresh ingredients on fresh buns.
We made these for a party... and they were a big hit!
