Ham Reuben Sandwich Recipe with Russian Horseradish Sauce

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.

Sweet Potato + Sausage Breakfast Skillet

Sweet Potato Sausage Brunch

I need a t-shirt that says “I love sweet spuds”. Seriously, I LOVE sweet potatoes. Funny thing is, I prefer them in a savory dish, like this Sweet Potato Sausage Breakfast Skillet.

Sure, they are great with traditional brown sugar, butter,  marshmallows, pecans and served as a sweet-side dish or dessert. I will be the last girl on earth to turn a sweet tater down.

But paired with spicy seasonings and a savory ingredient…hold me back.

This quick and delicious brunch is a filling and flavorful recipe you will want to make again.
