Reuben Latke

My husband loves Reuben Sandwiches ~ they’e easy to make but I also like to switch things up a bit.  I make a reuben casserole ~ that’s my stretch to the wild side ~ but a few weeks ago I came across this recipe for a Reuben Latke.  Say what??? I’ve never made a latke and the end result looked so tasty I had to give it a try.  It was a success ~ my husband and sons loved it!

  1. 1 bag of frozen hash browns -1 pound
  2. 1 onion, shredded
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1/4 cup matzo meal (I substituted buttery crackers crushed to small crumbs)
  5. 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  6. 1 tsp. salt
  7. 1 tsp. pepper
  8. 2 tbsp. butter
  9. 1/2 pound deli-style sliced corned beef
  10. 1/2 cup well-drained sauerkraut
  11. 2 slices Swiss cheese
  12. 2 tbsp. Russian dressing (I substituted Thousand Island Dressing)
  1. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat broiler. Allow the frozen hash browns to slightly thaw. Once it is a consistency you can easily work with place in a bowl and add the eggs, matzo (or cracker crumbs), baking powder, salt and pepper.
  2. In a medium ovenproof skillet, melt 1 tbsp. butter over medium-low heat. Spoon half (about 1 cup) of the potato mixture into a 6-inch disk. Cook, turning once, until golden-brown and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the latke to a cooling rack set inside a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining butter and potato mixture. Keep the latkes warm on the lower oven rack.
  3. In the same skillet, arrange the meat in an even layer, scatter the sauerkraut on top. Cover; cook over medium until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Top with the cheese, broil until melted, about 2 minutes.
  4. Spread the dressing on one of the latkes; top with the meat-and-cheese mixture.

The original recipe called for placing another latke on top of the sandwich but I made more smaller ‘sandwiches’ instead.  

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try!
