Football is everpresent in our household these days, between tonight's college National Championship and the impending Super Bowl game. I've paid much more attention this season due to Alex's Fantasy Football victory, so I am committed in the kitchen to deliver a winning menu matchup on February 4th!
During a season of sports championships and gatherings, these pretzel bun reuben sliders will please any fan—I was especially drawn to the pretzel tops' resemblance of football lace, so I knew they're be perfect to serve for the Super Bowl.
One bold bite, and you'll have a winning night despite the score on the screen!
Makes 12 sliders
12 mini pretzel buns
12 slices swiss cheese
12 ounces pastrami (or corned beef, if preferred), shaved
1 jar sauerkraut
Thousand island or dijon dressing
1. Turn broiler on high. Slice pretzel buns in half and layer bottom halves with a slice of swiss, ounce of pastrami, and spoonful of sauerkraut. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
2. Broil sliders for 2-3 minutes, until cheese melts and buns turn golden brown. Serve with Thousand Island or grainy mustard dipping sauces.
