Jewish in origin, but not by any means kosher, the Reuben sandwich is considered by many to be the ultimate Jewish/New York deli sandwich (though it may actually have been created in Omaha, Nebraska). Traditionally composed of corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing grilled between slices of sourdough rye-bread, this kosher-ized version replaces the Swiss cheese with Follow Your Heart brand smoked Gouda style vegan "cheese" slices and does not disappoint. Fuhgeddaboudit, y'all.
For the Sandwich
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a large skillet or griddle pan over medium-high heat. Lightly toast each slice of bread for about 45 seconds, or until slightly golden. Remove from heat and spread a few tablespoons of Russian dressing on the toasted side of each slice. Top half of the slices with desired amounts of smoked Gouda style "cheese" slices, corned beef, and sauerkraut. Top each sandwich with the remaining bread slices, dressing side down. Place sandwiches in the skillet/griddle and cook until golden, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, or until the "cheese" is melted to your likeness. Enjoy, y'all.
In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish, Worcestershire, sugar, and smoked paprika until combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
*As a time saver you can purchase prepared Russian dressing, but this homemade version is "next level" awesomeness, for what it's worth.
