Ham Reuben Sandwich Recipe with Russian Horseradish Sauce

This is quite possibly one of the best sandwiches I have ever put into my mouth. A Ham Reuben Sandwich recipe. Big sandwich with bigger flavors. Everyone has probably had the classic Reuben sandwich, right? Corned beef piled on rye bread, topped with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and some 1000 Island dressing. Delish.

But may I present you with the idea of a Ham Reuben Sandwich recipe instead?  And not just any Reuben sandwich. A Killer Ham Reuben Sandwich. Layers of thin deli-sliced black forest ham between two pieces of buttery toasted New York style rye bread.

And then..what really makes this sandwich a sammich…our homemade Russian Horseradish Sauce. Get in my tummy! You have to try this sandwich recipe and tell me what you think.
