Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes


  • 1/2 c olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 Tb ketchup
  • 2 Tb dill pickle relish
  • 2 Tb fresh lemon juice

  2. Stir these together until combined, and set aside for a moment.

  5. Layer on a slice of Swiss cheese, 1/4 of the corned beef, 1/4 of the sauerkraut and another slice of Swiss cheese.
  6. Top with the second slice of bread, again, butter side out.
  7. Repeat with all of the three remaining sandwiches.
  8. Cook these in your hot panini press until golden and crispy on the outside, and the cheese is melted and meat is hot.

  1. These look delicious, but since I don’t like corn beef I used thin sliced Deli turkey instead and they also are delicious…..guess it’s still not called Reuben, but it’s my kind of Reuben lol… the sauerkraut and cheese on the sandwich…..
