Breakfast Reuben Sandwich

Breakfast Reuben Sandwich
One of the best things about St Patrick's Day has to be all of the leftover corned beef and although the reuben sandwich is my favourite way to enjoy those leftovers, it is sometimes difficult to wait until lunch to make a reuben sandwich! This year I thought that it would be nice to push it up a bit and have a reuben for breakfast in the form of a breakfast sandwich in an english muffin with a fried egg! This breakfast reuben sandwich has all of the flavours of a regular reuben sandwich with the corned beef , swiss cheese, sauerkraut and russian or thousand island dressing but it is served in an english muffin with a fried egg. The only thing that is missing really is the lack of rye bread and if you feel up to it you could make your own rye english muffins but I took an easier route and simply added one of the primary flavours of a rye bread, the caraway seeds, to the breakfast sandwich. This sandwich certainly is one tasty breakfast treat and a perfect way to get a start to the day after St Patrick's Day!

Kevin, I've been eating my version of a Reuben all week: pumpernickel, canned corned beef (not the greatest, but it's just me!), swiss cheese, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, mustard. An egg would be a welcome addition.

YOu should try making a Jewish style "salt beef" sandwhich on rye with English mustard. I'm sure you could find a way to make it more interesting but don't mix milk (cheese) with meat, thats against Jewish dietary laws. Also aim to do it before or after Passover. Try to do something for your Jewish/Muslim fans which doesn't involve food they can't eat ie: Pork or meat and cheese/cream together all the time. Thanks and keep up the great work!
