"Newben" Reuben

Kimberly Kolligs


This open-faced sandwich is a twist on a favorite- a reuben made with roast beef and coleslaw instead of corned beef and sauerkraut. My husband and I made this for my mother-in-law once and the family now affectionately calls it the JaK Newben. (Jason and Kim's New Reuben)

How to Make "Newben" Reuben


  1. Cook the bacon to crispy. Preheat oven to 400. Toast bread.
  2. Spread 1/4 of the mayo onto each slice. Layer 2 slices bacon, then 1/4 the roast beef, then 1/4 of the coleslaw, and salt and pepper. Top with one slice of swiss.
  3. Bake about 5 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and melted.
  4. Note: I usually double this recipe because the left overs are an easy lunch the next day. You can eat these with a fork and knife or just use your hands and get a little messy. :-)
