Recipe - Sort-of-Reuben hot sandwich

This was a go at creating something resembling a Reuben sandwich. I don't think I got very close to that, but at least it tasted good. Next time I'll try and get hold of, or bake my own, some proper rye bread too.

Good quality Italian or French bread, for example ciabatta
Thousand Island Dressing
Cheese, I used Jarlsberg
Sauerkraut, squeezed to remove most of the moisture
Hot mustard

Start by heating the sandwich press/grill.

While the press/grill is heating slice the bread in half, lengthwise.

Spread the lower half of bread liberally with Thousand Island Dressing. Put pastrami on the lower half, top with cheese and sauerkraut. Finish off the top half of the bread, which should be spread with quite a good layer of hot mustard.

When the press/grill is hot enough put in the bread. Be patient and let it be in there until the bread is nicely browned and the cheese have melted.

Remove from the press/grill, slice in half crosswise and put the sandwich on a plate.
