Reuben Sliders on Pretzel Rolls


Reuben sandwiches are a combination of a lot of strong flavors:

  • Corned beef or pastrami
  • Sauerkraut
  • Swiss cheese
  • Rye Bread
  • Thousand Island dressing

I happen to like all but one of those tastes, but I made several variations to come up with these sliders.

These are a tiny take on the original Reuben sandwich.  As soon as I saw Sister Schubert’s Soft Pretzel Rolls, I knew they would make perfect little Reubens.  I didn’t miss the rye bread at all.

We ate these as part of lunch after church.   They’re super quick to put together.  The pretzel rolls are frozen, but only take a few minutes in the oven and they are warm and soft.  We love all kinds of bread and I really like being able to keep these rolls on hand in the freezer and still be able to have them on the table quickly.

I do admit that my kids opted out of having sauerkraut on theirs.  That’s okay.  It’s easy to alter sandwiches for each person’s tastes.

Here’s what you’ll need to make them: 

Reuben Sliders on Pretzel Rolls
  • Sister Schubert's Pretzel Rolls
  • Roast beef, corned beef or pastrami, sliced thin
  • Sauerkraut
  • Swiss cheese slices
  1. Warm the pretzel rolls in the oven according to the package directions.
  2. Warm the meat in the microwave or a small skillet.
  3. Split the rolls and top with meat, sauerkraut and Swiss.
  4. Pop the sandwiches under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese melts.
  5. Add Thousand Island dressing, Russian dressing or any condiments you like. Enjoy!

I mentioned my kids don’t like sauerkraut.  I don’t like Thousand Island dressing.

What about you?  Do you alter your Reuben sandwiches? What part do you skip?

I was one of eight bloggers selected by Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls to review their products.

However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

  1. I need to find these rolls! They look tasty. I love every part of a reuben…. but sometimes we do a slaw instead of the kraut. I normally do cornbeef but sometimes will do roast beef as well.

  2. Those look so amazing, I so hope my local stores carry pretzel rolls!!!

  3. Oh I love a rueben!! And can I ask where you found the pretzel rolls? My kids would love those.

    • Jill, I’ve seen them in Walmart. They are a new product from Sister Schubert’s. My kids loved them, so I think I’ll be buying them often now.

      • Thanks Tiffany- I went to their website and see that it’s at one of the Shoprites near me. Not my normal store but the fancy new one. So I’ll make a trip over there and check it out and get some Pretzel Rolls!! Oh and I have to share I made something with Puffed pastry last night- (a side dish of broccoli and cheese inside puffed pastry) and I had a bit leftover.
        Thanks to your great nutella braid recipe that I have used and loved I made little nutella bites with the pieces. DH ate them all!

  4. I am adding this recipe to my Feast in 15 binder. BTW, I LOVE my Feast in 15 book, Tiffany, use it ALL.THE.TIME. Fabulous!!

  5. I hope, I hope, I HOPE I can find these rolls in stores near me. These look fabulous!! I saw a recipe to make pretzel rolls from scratch, and I probably even printed it, but making bread from scratch is a hard thing for this working mama to do, timewise.
    I happen to love reuben sandwiches, and even Rachael sandwiches. If I alter anything, it’s the meat, as turkey is a much more health concious alternative. Oddly, this sandwich is the only place I will eat Thousand Island or Russian dressings.

  6. Those sound really yummy and easy! Sometimes I make vegetarian reubens with sautéed tempeh slices in place of the pastrami. Or instead of sandwiches, I’ll make reuben pizzas on a french bread base.

  7. I had no idea they had soft pretzel rolls out now! I guess I don’t stroll through the frozen aisle enough 🙂 I’m going to have to make these SOON…we love a good reuben sandwich!

  8. I did not even know pretzel rolls existed! What a great find! I adore Reubens. The more ‘kraut, the better!

  9. Reubens are my all-time favorite sandwich, provided that they are made right! I don’t like the Thousand Island dressing on mine–just plain mustard, thank you very much!! As a lover of Reubens AND pretzels, I will certainly be trying these little babies out!! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Hello from a fellow Lexingtonian (and food blogger)! I love reuben sandwiches made with turkey and will have to look for this little pretzel rolls. Great idea!

  11. I found this page on a search for the recipe for Costco’s pretzel buns. These things are SO good!! I want to know how to make them for that inevitable day when I can’t get them from Costco anymore. I see different recipes here and there but none that look like these amazing things. Have you found a recipe for them?

    • Staceu, I’ve never made them homemade. You might try googling for a recipe. I wish they were more widely available in stores. They’re so good!
