Reuben Braid

Reuben Braid -

When it comes to lunch, sometimes it’s a salad while other times it’s leftovers from dinner the night before. But a lunchtime staple is a classic sandwich. Sandwiches hold infinite possibilities between two slices of bread. Meats, cheeses, lettuce, tomato and more! I love a triple-decker turkey sloppy joe sandwich. Is that just a Jersey thing? I’m not really sure but until I moved to New Jersey I always thought of a sloppy Joe simply as ground beef in a tomato-based sauce served on a hamburger bun.

In Jersey I discovered a sandwich by the same name that is rye bread sandwiching turkey or corned beef, coleslaw, swiss cheese and Russian dressing. It’s crazy good people! It’s right up there in my top three favorite sandwiches hanging out with a Monte Cristo sandwich, which I happened to transform into a finger lickin’ Monte Cristo pull apart bread, perfect for snacking or an appetizer and a Reuben sandwich. Reubens remind me very much of that sloppy Joe type sandwich except that cool crisp coleslaw is traded for sauerkraut which is a-okay in my book.

Since I seem to have a thing for transforming my favorite sandwiches into loaf form, it seems only natural that today I offer you a Reuben braid. This golden loaf of bread is filled with all the goodness of a Reuben sandwich. Corned beef topped with sauerkraut and I chose to use mustard inside because that’s what I love on my Reuben sandwich but if you’re more of a traditionalist, spread some Russian dressing in there. It will be fantastic! Then I used some Jarlsberg Swiss inside that melts and mingles with all that Reuben deliciousness.

This loaf of bread could easily be lunch. For some of us (ahem) perhaps it was. Slice it and serve it up for a brunch or as an appetizer for entertaining! This golden braid would be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch. Looking for more ideas for your Mother’s Day Brunch?

Oh yum!! I pinned this for later. I adore Reuben sandwiches and could probably eat this whole loaf myself!!!

I’m so happy you like this! I ate nearly half of it as a very large lunch all by myself 😉
