Introducing the marriage of two of my most favorite sandwiches: the Reuben and the grilled cheese! Best lunch or dinner EVER!
I am slowly emerging from a flu stupor. I got hit hard. Not much has looked appetizing for the past 48 hours, but photos of this sandwich make my mouth water. If you know me well, you know that I LOVE grilled cheese sandwiches. I love anything Reuben, too, so what better way to enjoy both? The homemade, EASY sauerkraut gives it an added touch of awesomeness. You have to try this!
Chop up some cabbage. Red or green, and approximately 2 cups worth.
Throw it into a bowl along with kosher salt, sugar and cider vinegar.
Mix well and cover. Let sit for 1 hour. You will be pleasantly surprised when you taste how far it has come in that time.
Build the sandwiches according to below directions. Enjoy! Wishing you all a healthy, good start to your week!

Oh my goodness, does this grilled cheese sound ah-mazing! I'm so sorry that you've been sick with the flu, but I'm glad you're coming out of it, and I hope this week just gets better and better… and that you get to eat a few of these sandwiches as you're feeling more strong with a bowl of soup!
