Reuben Sliders on Rye

Reuben sliders on rye rolls are my favorite party food. These sliders are made in one pan and are easy to make if you entertain a crowd.

The Super Bowl and St. Patrick’s Day are my favorite occasions to make these sliders. They pair perfectly with french fries and dark beer.

Reuben Sliders Recipe

Good sliders starter with a good bun. Dinner rolls and Hawaiian rolls make the best slider buns. However, I think Reubens should always be made on rye.

Rye rolls can be hard to find at the store, so I made them from scratch with a sourdough starter. It’s easier than it sounds if you already have a sourdough starter and some rye flour. Get my rye roll recipe here.

If you make the rye rolls at home, you’ll be sure to impress with 100% from-scratch Reuben sliders. You can decide whether to include caraway seeds in the dough or not. I personally love the caraway flavor in the rolls. The earthy sweetness pairs perfectly with the salted meats.

Mini Reuben Sliders

Now, if you don’t have the time or patience to make slider buns from scratch, you can use any rolls you want. These mini Reuben sliders are fantastic on any bun.

Here are some easy bun options you can order online or look for in the store:

You can also use any sauerkraut on these sliders. I went with turmeric sauerkraut, and it was absolutely delicious! Here are the sauerkrauts I recommend:

Reuben Ingredients

When making a Reuben, you can use pastrami or corned beef. While these salted meats are similar, they are unique. The main difference between corned beef and pastrami is the way they’re cut and processed. Corned beef is boiled, but pastrami is smoked and steamed.

Traditional Reuben sandwiches are made with corned beef, but either one works. You can also use a mix. I find that pastrami is spicier and I prefer it.

Here are all the ingredients you need to make Reuben sliders:

  • 12-15 rye rolls
  • 1 pound pastrami or corned beef
  • 8 ounces swiss cheese slices
  • 2 cups sauerkraut, drained
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon fermented jalapeños chopped
