Baked Reuben Sliders

Throw these Baked Reuben Sliders in the oven for a party or just for dinner!
They can be a great finger food, yet 2 or 3 will fill you right up.

We have been having some gorgeous weather for February in the Midwest.  My kids and myself have been itching to get out of the house and take in the fresh air.  We even had the windows open twice in the past week!

Cool, fresh air seems to do everyone good, right?  Moods are better and the kids get worn out easier. Win, win in everyone's book.  Throw in a couple of good, long walks, getting the bikes out and a neighborhood play date and this past week has been golden.

Now that I've completely jinxed myself, I'm sure we'll have a major snowstorm wallop us come the first week of March.

I promise I have some lighter, healthier meals on the horizon {hello, summer is fast approaching}, so forgive me, but these sliders.....they were NEEDED.

I had been dreaming about them for quite some time.  I meant to have them on the blog over a month ago!  Each time I went to make them, something got in the way - we had to cancel going to a friend's where I was going to take them - then I planned them for a weekend meal and we suddenly were on the road with other plans....so, finally this week I just made them.

Just because.

And we randomly snacked on them for lunch one day and dinner the next.  Just because it is called a slider doesn't mean you have to be at a party eating them!

I kept these pretty traditional with the iconic corned beef, swiss cheese and sauerkraut.  I did make my own thousand island dressing {which honestly I make once a week anyway for salad dressing, honestly I could drink the darn stuff}.

And please, please, please use King's Hawaiian rolls for this recipe.  I'm not sure what they do to those things, but they are buttery, soft and delicious.  You can find them at literally every grocery store.  Even my small town store has them.  But - hint, hint - sometimes they are stored in the freezer section.

Have a napkin close by when you take a bite of these!  Between the dressing, the cheese and the buttery topping, you'll have stuff dripping everywhere.

But it is SO worth it.

If you don't gobble them all up in one sitting, just wrap them up and keep them in the fridge.  Twenty to thirty seconds in the microwave warms them up again nicely and they'll taste just the same.
