The Reuben Sandwich

A grilled sandwich made with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing on rye bread.  Yes, the Reuben sandwich.

Arnold Reuben, founder of Reuben’s Restaurant and Delicatessen, concocted this combo one night in 1914 when he was making a sandwich for a down-and-out actress named Anna Selos.  He originally named the sandwich after her, but later changed it to the Reuben Special.

I’d be afraid of what a sandwich named after me might look like…LOL!
