You might recall a previous post for Egg Roll in a Bowl? It was a pretty simple recipe for a one pot meal. Just recently I found on Pinterest this recipe for one of my favourite sandwiches in a bowl and without the bread! Since I already had the coleslaw and corned beef (Costco) this was a snap… Go easy with the Russian dressing as it can be overpowering…
Reuben Sandwich in a Bowl
One bag of coleslaw mix
1 pound of corned beef cut into strips
2-3 tbsp of butter
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar free ketchup
4 tsp horseradish
1 tsp hot sauce(Tabasco)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
Melt butter in skillet.
Add corned beef and sauté covered for 5 minutes.
Now, add coleslaw, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Stir coleslaw and corned beef and top with cheese. You can cover skillet and allow the cheese to melt or put in the oven and broil until cheese is bubbly.
When our kids were small, we used to make this recipe from the Best of Bridgehttp://www.bestofbridge.com/ cookbook. It was easy to prepare the night before and then just put in the oven while opening presents. Not sure saying wife saver is politically correct these days, but here it is –
