Okay here we go:

Go ahead and buy 2 lbs. of pastrami thin sliced by the deli (boarshead brand at hyvee)
one bag of sourkraut by the polish sausage in the cooler
1.5 lbs. of lorraine swiss sliced by the deli thin
1.5 jars of Maries 1000 island dressing



Proceedure:

Spray a large glass baking dish w/ PAM
Chop sliced pastrami in cubes half inch by half inch
chop sliced cheese in cubes half inch by half inch seperate the slices
drain kraut in colindar (sp)

Combine all ingredients including dressing in large mixing bowl.

Toss...

put neatly in baking dish
bake 350 for maybe 25 30 mins.
Until bubbly.

Blot excessive grease of top with paper towl.. It will puddle due to cheese and dressing...


Serve with party rye which are minature 1.5 inch. rye bread slices should have at Hyvee as well.

Let me know if you decide to make this...

PS: It is delicious. especially if you like reubens...

I estimated the dressing amount the cheese and meat and kraut should be okay for the group though. Just be sure it is wet enough, but not too wet. PM me if you run into any issues.

I cooked for 12 yrs. also went to Culinary Arts school. Not bragging just letting you know that you can trust my advise with these things and I'll be here if you need me.


Enjoy and take care

One more thing. The more I think about it. I'd double all the amounts. I've heard how your parties are (you all eat.) Propotions should be okay to times everything by two (X2) Eye the dressing like I said earlier. Go ahead and buy 4 sleeves of rye. This may set you back about 35-40 bucks but everyone will love it.

Zoner another affordable dip with corn chips is Hot-Cheese Dip.. 2 pks. Velveta C.. 2lbs. ground-beef fried with taco-seasoning.. 2 cans of RoTel tomatos.. Hot-sause to taste.. put in crock-pot heat-up till cheese melts, add cream or whole milk to thin it up some..might what to check the heat again it might need a little more Hot-sause....BOOG..

Damn homes, that sounds delicious, Ruebens' are my favorite sammy, rather have one of those than a burger. I'm definetly making this.

I do have a suggestion for some lazy ****s though. What I have done in the past is roll through to the Chinese joint down the street, and grab $40 worth of crab rangoon's(just ask them how many you can get for that, and they'll bargain with you), and they are always the first thing gone.

Using deli corned beef works too. I make almost the same thing and just keep it in a crock and serve it as an appetizer on the cocktail rye you mentioned.

I don't want to even imagine what all that must look like mixed together

INGREDIENTS:

* 1 pound ground beef
* 3/4 cup chopped onion
* 1 green bell pepper, chopped
* 1 can (15 ounces) chili beans
* 1 can (15 ounces) pork & beans
* 1 can (approx. 15 ounces) cream-style corn
* 2 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

* 1 can (approx. 15 ounces) cream-style corn
* 2 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

I know, it's looks funky on paper. Actually, the cook who made the batch I had put in little chunks of new potatoes and uses butter beans intead of pork and beans. But I'm tellin ya, it's gooooood. And it can work as a side or as a meal all by itself. Also good if you make some hot biscuits with this. Mmmm....I might have to make this myself on Sunday!

1 lb ground beef, browned
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can rotel
1 small package frozen corn
1 package taco seasoning
1 package Hidden Valley ranch dip mix

Place browned ground beef in a crock pot with all the other ingredients and mix well. Can be eaten stand alone, or I like to put over Fritos and top with sour cream and cheese. Can be doubled or tripled if needed. Very good.

I was talking to this old lady at a farmers market in Washinton State awhile back. She kept going and on about how she made the best mint jelly in the world blah, blah, blah. I'm like whatever give two jars. I have went through 2 cases since. Nothing in the store at any price even comes close. If you love lamb like I do it's a must. If you want her number I'll give it to you Monday. She is pretty old so I keep hoping she will still be there when I call her. She is a very sweet old lady.

My wife sprayed the pan ... placed 95% fat free Roast beef on the bottom ... a slice of Swiss cheese ... a layer of sourkraut ... used party tooth picks to tie the ends together (making a roll of SR's good eats) ... cooked ... dabbed some horseradish and green olives.

Probably not as good as your's on Rye but it is better than what I've been eating on the no carbs diet.

I'm trying this out today, shrimp is cheaper than most proteins:

Recipe
Roasted Broccoli With Shrimp

Published: January 9, 2009

2 pounds broccoli, cut into bite-size florets

4 tablespoons ( 1/4 cup) extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds

1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon hot chili powder

1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined

1 1/4 teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 large lemon)

Lemon wedges, for serving.

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, toss broccoli with 2 tablespoons oil, coriander, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and chili powder. In a separate bowl, combine shrimp, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon zest, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

2. Spread broccoli in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes. Add shrimp to baking sheet and toss with broccoli. Roast, tossing once halfway through, until shrimp are just opaque and broccoli is tender and golden around edges, about 10 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges, or squeeze lemon juice all over shrimp and broccoli just before serving.

Yield: 4 servings.
