Reuben and Fries . . . Who is Reuben?

Reuben sandwich and fries

Ha ha … who is Reuben?  Reuben is a wonderfully delicious sandwich!  Do you love Reuben sandwiches?  I do! I even hesitated posting this because it’s so easy to make.  And these home-made fries baked in the oven are the bomb!

For the Reuben I mix mayonnaise with ketchup and a little relish until the color looks like Russian Dressing.  I put that on both sides of the rye bread, add sauerkraut (drained), corned beef and swiss cheese.  Butter the outside of both slices of bread and cook until nicely browned and the cheese is melted.  A cast iron skillet works great for these kind of sandwiches.

Oven Baked Fries

  • 4 Large Baking Potatoes, washed and skin on
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika

Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.  Slice potatoes, using a mandolin for french fry cut,.  Put sliced potatoes in ice water and let sit.

Wisk together olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.  Drain potatoes and pat dry.  Mix the olive oil mixture with the potatoes.  Place on a single layer on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes until crispy.
