These Easy Reuben Slider Sandwiches are a delicious St. Patrick’s Day recipe and perfect for anyone who loves homemade reuben sandwiches!
These Easy Reuben Slider Sandwiches are the perfect party sandwich for St. Patrick’s Day Entertaining! If you have extra corned beef, or just prefer yours in sandwich form, then you need to make these easy sandwiches!
Admittedly, I am not a St. Patty’s day celebrator and other than buying my daughter a pretty bow for school, we don’t do anything to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I think the entire thing is kind of silly (sorry!) and rather focus my energy on preparing for other spring holidays, like Easter and Mother’s Day! That being said, I love reuben sandwiches so I am always up for one of those, at St. Patrick’s Day or anytime of the year!
What is in a reuben?
Traditionally, a reuben sandwich is corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing, all on rye bread. The tradition reuben sandwich is so good and is a fun sandwich to make at home, but we often order them at our favorite restaurant because the ingredients are not ones that I typically have on hand. It is definitely worth a trip to the store though to make these delicious slider sandwiches!
Can you substitute corned beef in a reuben?
While corned beef will give you the most traditional reuben taste, you could substitute pastrami or even turkey and make it a rachel sandwich!
I love the taste of rye bread, but decided to make these in slider form and used my favorite sweet Hawaiian rolls, so the taste isn’t exact, but still close enough for me! Using the slider rolls allows this sandwich to be entertaining friendly because you can make a big batch of them and set them out for your guests! These sandwiches can be made ahead of time, which makes entertaining even easier!
These sliders are so easy because you layer everything up in a casserole dish and then they get baked until warm and melty and then sliced into individual sandwiches! Don’t be tempted to skip the topping! It makes the buns so flavorful and adds some extra pizazz to the sandwiches.
