If you are missing the flavors from a New York Deli sandwich or used to love Reuben’s like I did, I made this recipe for you.  This recipe has all the flavor of the best Reuben sandwiches in a slightly different form.  I would suggest toasting the flax bread or allow the flax bread crumbles to get slightly stale on top of the fridge.  If you have the ingredients already prepped, this recipe is quick and easy to prep.

One requirement though for the recipe is to have low carb thousand island salad dressing.  To that end, I did release recipe for that salad dressing.  It was also my way to build some curiousity for what the upcoming  dish would be.

    I’m not exactly counting my carb intake but this one surely looks and sounds good. I think I will have to make a little adjustment though. My kids love ham so I’m thinking of replacing the corned beef with fried cubed ham? What do you think?
