How to make reuben sliders in the oven.
✱ Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and instructions!
Prepare pan and oven: Line a 9 x 13 baking dish or sheet pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven.
The buns: Start with a tray of slider buns, hawaiian rolls, or even dinner buns and then slice in half horizontally. I like to leave the individual buns connected.
Layers: Pile the bottom of the bread with layers. First a layer of swiss cheese, then on goes the sliced corn beef. Another layer of swiss cheese. Next the drained sauerkraut, and finally the thousand island dressing.
Seasoned butter topping: Place the top of the slider buns back on top. Mix the melted butter, grainy mustard and seasonings together and brush on the top.
Bake: Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and finish baking until golden brown and cheese is melted.
Slice and serve: Slice baked reuben sandwich sliders into individual sandwiches and serve.
Frequently Asked Questions
I like to use the savory butter hawaiian roll sliders, but they also have sweet, jalapeno, and honey wheat too! You can also pick up any slider rolls and dinner roll work too!
Either! There is a difference though in the dressing. Thousand Island is a little sweeter and Russian dressing usually is spicier and has a little more kick to it. The choice is yours, so pick to your taste.
Cover with foil or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3 to 5 days.
To reheat reuben sliders after they are cold, preheat oven to 350°. Place the sandwiches in a baking dish or pan and brush with a little melted butter. Cover with foil and bake until heated through.
- Be sure to drain sauerkraut in a mesh strainer and then squeeze dry really well with a paper towel or cheese cloth. This will keep the sandwiches from getting soggy.
- Use a sharp serrated bread knife to cut the rolls in half. This will help to cut them more evenly and keep the bread from crumbling.
- Use up leftover corned beef or have your deli slice it for you for convenience.
- Using sliced cheese works well for covering and melting. Don't get the slices overly thick or they take longer to melt. You want the cheese to melt before the top is overly brown. Covering for partial bake time also helps with this.
- Cut using the rolls as a guideline. A cut and serve turner works nicely or a sharp knife.
- Keep sliders together until ready to serve and then cut. This helps retain the heat longer so they will be warm when serving.
