Why You’ll Love These Corned Beef Sliders
They have such a unique and delicious taste that makes them great.
It’s not hard to assemble these sliders before you serve them to family and friends.
You can prepare these sliders with simple ingredients available at the grocery store.
What type of dressing will taste best with these sliders?
Russian dressing is a top choice for these sliders. If you don’t have it or don’t like it, you can use Thousand Island dressing to add more flavor. The zesty dressing tastes great with corned beef, sauerkraut, and more.
Do I have to use canned sauerkraut?
No, you don’t have to use canned sauerkraut. If you’d prefer to use bagged sauerkraut from the refrigerated section of the grocery store, feel free to do that. Use what you like and prefer most!
Why do I need to use poppy seeds?
The poppy seeds add a special touch to these rolls. They’ll stick perfectly on top of the rolls with the melted unsalted butter spread out on top of it.
How long does it take to prepare these sliders?
It only takes 10 minutes to assemble these sliders, which is great when you don’t have much time to spare. After you’ve prepared them, you’ll need an additional 30 minutes to let the sandwiches cook. You can have these tasty sliders ready to eat in less than an hour.
If you want to add extra flavor to these Reuben Sliders, you can use caraway seeds. It’s an acquired taste, so it’s definitely optional, and if you don’t like the taste of these seeds, leave them out of the recipe.
You can substitute the corned beef with pastrami if you’d like to make these sliders with a bit of a twist. The pastrami has an excellent flavor that goes well with the ingredients added to these sliders.
If you have any leftover corned beef that you’ve already prepared, shred it down and use it to make these sliders.
Why do I need to use Hawaiian rolls?
The Hawaiian rolls have that buttery, sweet taste that really takes these sliders to the next level. You’ll love the soft texture and the incredible flavor of these rolls when paired with corned beef, dressing, and other ingredients.
Can I add cheese to these sliders?
Yes, you can add some cheese to these sliders. Both American and Swiss cheese are two great options to add to these sliders.
Should I add a dipping sauce with these sliders?
Yes, you can serve extra dressing on the side of your sliders. Some people like to dip these sliders into more of the dressing, whether you’re planning to use the Russian or Thousand Island dressing.
How to Store the Sliders
Put your sliders in an airtight container and place them in the fridge. You can keep them fresh in your fridge for up to three days. You won’t need to reheat them because they taste good cold, but you can microwave them if you’d like to eat your sliders warm.
Can I freeze these Reuben Sliders?
Yes, you can freeze these sliders. So, if you’d like to prepare them in advance and then save them for when you need them, this is a great recipe. When storing in the freezer, be sure to use an airtight container. Once you’ve placed the sliders in the freezer, they can stay there for up to three months before you’d need to thaw and enjoy.
Reuben Sliders are a fun and delicious appetizer that you can have available for guests at different events and parties. You can also make these sliders at home for lunch or dinner when you’re in the mood for something flavorful!
You really can’t go wrong with sliders, and this classic combination for a reuben just takes them over the top. The sweetness from the rolls is the perfect touch. The rolls will soak up all that butter sauce and the bottoms get crispy, delish!
1. Substitute the corned beef with pastrami for a fun twist, or do a mix of corned beef and pastrami! A reuben made with deli turkey is also popular, so that is a good substitution as well. You can also use leftover corned beef from your St. Patrick’s day meal, shredded or thinly sliced works great!
2. The caraway seeds add a little flavor that you would get from a classic reuben. A reuben is traditionally served on rye bread which is typically made with caraway. This is definitely an acquired taste so that is why I say the seeds are optional in this recipe. If you don’t like rye bread, just leave the seeds out, no need to replace with anything.
3. Keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
