You can easily put the ingredients of a Reuben sandwich onto sliders buns instead of bread slices. I really like the flavor that the pretzel buns add to this recipe but if you cannot find pretzel slider buns, you can use dinner rolls or any type of small bun. The pretzel buns are topped with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and a homemade Russian dressing. If you would prefer not to prepare the Russian dressing, you can save time by using bottled Thousand Island dressing as well. The sliders are prepared and then baked in the oven until heated through and the cheese has melted. These sliders go great as an appetizer for a party or can be served for dinner with French fries or a side-dish. Enjoy.
