  • 1 tsp Mayonnaise

  • 1 tsp Ketchup

  • 3g or 1/2 tsp Horseradish 

  • 1 tsp Frank’s Hot Sauce

  1. To make Russian dressing, add mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish and hot sauce in a small bowl and use a fork or small whisk to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. Once all sandwich fillings are prepped (sliced, measured etc) heat a griddle over medium-low heat. 

  3. Add corned beef to griddle and let is start browning on one side. 

  4. While that is browning, begin toasting one side of each slice of bread on griddle - use coolest part. 

  5. Add sauerkraut to griddle, spreading it out to the same size as a piece of your bread. Top the sauerkraut with Swiss cheese.

  6. Turn corned beef once brown on both sides.

  7. Spread the Russian dressing onto the un-toasted side of one piece of bread while it is still on the griddle. 

  8. Once corned beef browned on both sides, layer it on top of the dressed bread. 

  9. Use a spatula to carefully lift sauerkraut & cheese onto  top of corned beef. 

  10. Finally, top the other piece of bread. Un-toasted side down. It should only be lightly toasted.
