Maifest recipe: Germania Reuben sandwiches

The Tri-State's Germania Society is celebrating the birth of spring with Maifest this weekend.

Whole roasted hogs, rueben sandwiches, wursts, German pastries and, of course, German biers will fill Germania Park on West Kemper Road.

Whip up the Germania Society's Ruebens for yourself or try them out at Maifest.


Jar of your favorite Sauerkraut

Quality rye bread


Thousand Island Dressing

Swiss cheese slices

Corned Beef Slices


1. Preheat a large skillet or griddle on medium heat.

2. Warm sauerkraut in separate pot.

3. Lightly butter one side of bread slices. Spread non-buttered sides with Thousand Island dressing. On 4 bread slices, layer 1 slice Swiss cheese, 2 slices corned beef, 1/4 cup sauerkraut and second slice of Swiss cheese. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides out.

4. Grill sandwiches until both sides are golden brown, about 10 minutes per side. Serve hot.
