Farmhouse Sandwich

1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup sour cream
1⁄4 teaspoon caraway seed, crushed
1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
1⁄2 cup sauerkraut, drained (1/2 of an 8-oz can)
3⁄4 tablespoon butter, melted
12 slices country bread
18 slices swiss cheese
6 slices ham (thinly sliced)
pickle (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.
In a small mixing bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, seeds & pepper; stir in kraut; set aside.
On a foil-lined baking sheet, place six slices bread--first brush each with melted butter (save some for the other half of the sammie); top with a slice of cheese, then 1/6th of the kraut mixture,then a slice of ham and two slices of cheese--do this on all six slices of bread.
Brush remaining six slices of bread with melted butter; place on cheese--with butter side up, to make six sandwiches.
Bake for 10 minutes (cheese is melted, bread is lightly browned)--turn once during that time.
Remove from oven; slice diagonally, serve with pickles.

SEPTEMBER HARVEST: Remember Johnny Appleseed by placing a few thin slices of apple between the ham and cheese.

NEBRASKA REUBEN: Salute Omaha's claim to fame and use thinly sliced corned beef instead of the ham.

CRUNCHY BITES: Add a few sunflower kernels to the sauerkraut mixture and honor those hardy souls in North Dakota who raise huge fields of sunflowers!

BOOST YOUR PROTEIN: Stir about a 1/4-cup of cooked edible soybeans (edamame) into the sauerkraut mixture and thank a South Dakota farmer!

  1. Yum! I love sandwiches like this -- gooey and good!

  2. I'm doing this tonight. I've made Reuben sandwiches before but the ham is a great alternative. Thanks for sharing at Keep In Touch. I'm thrill you stopped by.

  3. Your sandwich looks delicious, however, I'm not sure my grandchildren would think so. Maybe if I don't tell them the ingredients haha My adult children would enjoy them I'm sure, maybe a card night snack while the kids are asleep.

  4. I've never heard of a sandwich like this, sounds so unique and tasty!! Personally I'm not a fan of caraway seeds or black pepper, maybe I can customize it a bit and give it a try!

  5. I really have to make this sandwich asap! Sounds super delicious and I'm sure it's a perfect comfort food for the cold winter days.

  6. New sandwiches are always exciting. This sounds delicious and I appreciate that you added variations. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I've never made a sandwich with sauerkraut before. This one sounds delicious and would be perfect for the upcoming chilly days.
