Low Carb Open-Faced Rueben Sandwich. Rueben, Rueben I’ve been thinking what a fine world this would be…Many of us know this song from childhood with two children each telling the other how good life would be if boys didn’t bother girls and girls didn’t bother boys and we kinda know how that turns out. Well, it is only a children’s fairytale song but this open-faced rueben sandwich is absolutely for real and very easy to make so, enjoy. If you decide to use one slice of bread you will need Carbalose Flour Bread or Naan Flat Bread but it is also very good without any bread. If you don’t have 1,000 Island or Russian Dressing the Mississippi Comeback Sauce is absolutely perfect.
