Herbed Butter

  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried minced onion
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon poppy seeds
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • 1 pound deli corned beef
  • 1 loaf marble rye bread
  • 1 cup Russian Dressing
  • 8 ounces sauerkraut
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese


Herbed Butter

  • In a small bowl, mix together butter, garlic, onion, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and salt. Set aside.


  • Steam the corned beef by placing a small amount at a time (about 1/4 pound) in a damp paper towel and placing it in the microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  • Heat the sauerkraut (cover in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until heated through).
  • Butter one side of each slice of rye bread using the herbed butter. Place 2- 3 slices of buttered bread on heated skillet or grill pan over medium-low heat.
  • Layer the Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, more corned beef, and another slice of cheese and top with another slice of bread (butter side up).
  • Heat until bread slightly browned and crispy and cheese melted about 2-3 minutes. Flip and repeat with the opposite side.
