Recipe: ReuBUN Sandwich


Happy National Pickle Month! I love a good pickle, and it is always great to have one alongside a good ol' Sammy. To keep the #150BunsofSummer good times rollin'... Here is an awesome, classic recipe for a ReuBUN sandwich. Emphasis on that sweet, sweet toasty bun.


  • 4 D’Italiano® Original Crustini Hamburger Buns
  • 10 slices of corned beef
  • 10 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut
  • Sliced dill pickles

Russian Dressing:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. pickle juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Wrap corned beef slices in tin foil with a little water; then steam in the oven by baking at 350°F.
  2. For the Russian dressing, combine mayo, lemon juice, pickle juice, Worcestershire sauce and salt & pepper in a bowl, then set aside.
  3. Build sandwich on D’Italiano® Original Crustini Hamburger Bun by layering Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut, more cheese and then adding the top bun, already smeared with Russian dressing.
  4. On a flat-top grill, grill sandwich on low heat and use a metal bowl to cover the sandwich to help the cheese melt. Once the flattop is hot, add a squirt of water under the bowl to further steam the sandwich.
  5. Remove from flat top and serve with a side of sliced pickles.
