So we're agreed, the Reuben is the sandvich master race?
If a Reuben and a BLT had sex and had little sandwich babies, they could take over the world.
I think you could successfully add bacon to a reuben. Likewise a bit of baby swiss on a BLT could be a good thing.
But lettuce and sauerkraut should never share pieces of bread. Edited, Jul 27th 2012 5:55pm by Elinda
When Person A and Person B have sex and make a baby, does said baby end up with ALL of the features of A and B? No, the baby just ends up with some features from each. Since I am the evil scientist in this sandwich engineering, I decree that the sandwich babies would end up like this:
Bread: thick cut and crusty, doesn't have to be rye, but it can be if you want it to. Under no circumstances is it pumpernickle
Meat: delicious, tender, thick cut corned beef and cripy applewood smoked bacon
Cheese: any firm, smooth-melting, white cheese will do; gruyere, swiss, jack, pepper jack
Fixins: thick-cut heirloom tomatoes, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing
Assembly: bread, layer of Russian dressing, tomatoes, beef, kraut, bacon, layer of Russian dressing, bread; put it on a panini press long enough to toast the bread, enjoy
