    So, I like Reuben Melts, and everyone that I've ever had has consisted of:bread, swiss, corn beef, saurkraut and 1000 island dressing. The other day I ordered one and it came with coleslaw instead of saurkraut. Was this a faux pas? A misunderstanding? Is there a concrete recipe for a Reuben Melt or are saurkraut and coleslaw interchangable in it (I found I prefer the former with the latter on the side)

    Ewwww...A hillbilly Reuben. My wife's grandmother puts cole slaw on BBQ beef sandwiches. That may be one of the singly most disgusting things I've ever heard of.

    I think I'd prefer it with cole slaw.

    Dude... I love the south. Except for the toothless hick waitress asking me:

    "Ya'll want slaw with that?"


    and its gross.

    Cole slaw is a side dish. Sauerkraut is a sandwich topping. Interchanging the two is grossly wrong.
  6. Hmm, never experienced that kind of sandwich, what is it?

    What he said.

    Slightly off topic:

    Everyone knows that the greatest sandwhich ever consisnt of:

    1 slice of honey wheat bread
    1 thick layer of "Peter Pan" crunchy peanut butter
    1 not so thick layer of no sugar added grape jelly
    1 slice of honey wheat bread
  8. To me!
    French "baguette" (bread)
    And mayonnaise....

    You force me to resurrect the greatest sandwich of all time. I haven't made one for a few months, so I probably will today.

    Start with the previous dinner: Boneless, skinless pieces of chicken (thighs or breast tenders, either one will do.) Add fajita seasons. Cut the chicken piesces most of the way through and lay them open. Place a jalapeno rind (just the green part, no seeds) into the chicken. Wrap in bacon. Bake till done.

    Serve with wild rice and salad. Awesome.

    Now we move on to the important part.

    The leftover chicken pieces are to be sliced in thin layers. Somewhere between 1/4" and 1/8".

    Now grill buttered bread in a skillet. I prefer honey wheat berry or potato bread. Use whatever kind you prefer.
    On one slice place sharp cheddar cheese. On the other slice place monterey jack cheese.
    Place a layer of the thinly sliced leftover chicken on one slice of bread.
    Then add sliced tomatoes, baby spinach(in stead of lettuce) and thinly sliced red onions.
    Pesto mayo, but not so much that it gets runny
    Place other slice of bread on top.
    Add pressure. I use a teapot with a quart of water inside.
    The melted cheese on each slice of bread should sort of 'glue' the sandwich together. Remove from heat let it sit under pressure. Slice it in sections. Enjoy.

    Manna from heaven, or at least from my kitchen.

    edit: I forgot the Pesto Mayo
  10. The greatest sandwich of all time does indeed contain cole slaw! The sandwich can be had at Zingermans Deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It contains the following:

    Grilled Sourdough bread
    Cole Slaw
    Apple wood smoked bacon
    pulled barbecue chicken
    grilled sourdough bread

    Cole slaw is perfectly acceptable as a sandwich topper, and it absolutely MUST go on top of a chili dog!

    As for cheezewiz -- who are you to talk about hillbilly's? We are both from Ohio, and you know there is as much hillbilly in us as anyone! (Unless you are North of Columbus -- I am not) :D :D :D
  11. Wow...We have to meet! :smug:
    Sounds really good!

    Call your lawyer. Slaw on a Reuben is a felony in your state.

    Best sanga's are with left over snags, or a good old avacado/chicken style sanga, your choice of topping..

    I'm glad there is still some semblance of sanity left in the world. Slaw on a hot sandwich completely destroys the hot/cold dynamic. It's place is on the side, where it can be indulged to alleviate the savoriness of the kraut and corn beef.

    This thread can now continue being about favorite sandwiches.

    Ya, a reuben deserves kraut.
  16. You, sir, have obviously not been to Zingerman's, which is a deli and is regarded as one of the best places to eat on the planet, no matter which report you are looking at!

    I'm just saying, until you have tried it . . . :D
  17. Look, I, with the last name Rhoton, and being from Ohio, completely understand the German need for kraut. Even with my German heritage and living in Cincinnati (Zinzinnati), have to admit that slaw kills kraut on a sandwich.

    Slaw vs. kraut...They're both gross IMO.

    My favorite sandwich lately is from the deli next door. Its called the Tuscany. It consists of fresh, thinly-sliced italian roast beef, grilled eggplant,red onion, tomato w/ pesto mayo on italian bread. mmm.

    Well, you certainly have the heritage... but still I disagree. Honestly, I'm not a claw fan. That white creamy jizz stuff is gross to me... like liquid lard.. *shudders*
