Reuban Sliders with Thousand Island

What’s on your game day menu? I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of any big sports event is always the food. These Reuban Sliders with Thousand Island are always a game winning hit!

These hand held warm sandwiches are the perfect crowd pleaser. Ooey, savory, and completely dippable, they will keep you going till halftime.

Stacks of Flavor

When it comes to game day eating, regardless of the game, there are just certain requirements. These Gluten Free Reuban Sliders with Thousand Island check all the boxes.

Being from Michigan, we take our sports and our game day grub seriously. When you’re jumping up in the air to celebrate a touchdown, you want something that you can easily hold in one hand…ideally with a drink in the other.

These stuffed and loaded sandwiches satisfy all of my game day cravings. Rich beefy spiced pastrami is balanced by tangy crunchy sauerkraut. Molten gooey melted Dairy Free cheese hugs the stack of meat.

One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that unlike a traditional Reuban there’s no standing over a griddle or stove flipping sandwiches. These get assembled and baked, making them an ideal make ahead. Just have your dish ready to pop in the oven before the halftime show.

What takes these over the top is the homemade thousand island dressing. After being baked with a savory sauce, these warm sliders are served with tangy, creamy, slightly sweet and spicy thousand island sauce. For this recipe I am using my favorite relish, Wickles Pickles Original Relish.

Game day eats should be as easy as they are fun and delicious. These sandwiches are as fast to make as a QB spiraling a football down field.

  • Pregame! Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
