Reuben Sandwich

I love leftovers that go into a sandwich. Meatloaf, pot roast, whole chicken, turkey and corned beef. I dont even want to eat them for dinner, but just make a sandwich or sammich as we say it around my house. Corned Beef is especially good in a sandwich! squirt some mustard on it and I am in heaven. But tonight I am going all out and making Ruebens! As a little girl I did not like these because they had sauerkraut on them and swiss cheese. Two items that I just couldnt get over but as an adult I love it. It helps if you rinse and squeeze out all the water from the sauerkraut. It takes the bite out of it that was a bit too much for me. Swiss cheese is just something that I have grown to love over the years. This wasn't too bad as far as calories goes too. It was about 400 calories, using reduced fat Swiss cheese and light mayo.
