  • 1/2 lb deli sliced corned beef chopped
  • 32 oz jar sauerkraut rinsed, drained, and squeezed (about 2 cups)
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup gherkin baby pickles chopped

  • Add 4 slices of Swiss cheese.
  • Then add chopped corned beef on top.
  • Drizzle with 1000 Island dressing, spreading to cover.
  • Add 4 more slices of Swiss cheese.
  • Finally, sprinkle on bread crumbs. Optional: you can spray lightly with cooking spray to crisp up bread more.

To make the bread crumbs I added a few chopped slices of Rye bread to a food processor and pulsed until it was the texture/size of bread crumbs.
