Do you ever crave a good old-fashioned sandwich for dinner? A simple, rustic, hearty sandwich?

There used to be this restaurant near my parents house called Siegelman’s Deli. It had THE BEST corned beef I’ve ever had. My Dad would pick corned beef up there often along with a half loaf of rye bread, 2 croissants for Kara and me and a pickle. It was the best possible dinner. But then Siegelman’s closed and our family was left with a gaping hole in our hearts and bellies for what used to be but no longer was.

Then we learned to make our own corned beef sandwiches and we kicked them up a notch with cheese and dressing. They take 5 minutes to make and they are delicious. Take that Siegelman’s!

It was kind of funny making these Rueben Grilled Cheeses because for 3 people we made them 3 different ways. Kara’s was a croissant with just cheese and corned beef…skip the dressing and kraut. Mine was a croissant with dressing, cheese and corned beef…skip the kraut and Cliff’s was rye bread…everything on it (as posted below). That’s the good thing about sandwiches, it’s easy to customize each one. Everybody’s happy. Especially my parents because they got to enjoy all the leftovers!
