Ruben Hot Dogs

My mom and dad have been making these for years. I have no idea where the recipe came from. My mom may have just made it up. Anyway, it is a cheap and easy way to replicate the tastes of a Ruben. This recipe can easily be made vegetarian by using a tofu dog, which is what we do. Likewise it can be made vegan by using the tofu dog and replacing the cheese with a soy cheese. The dog above is on a whole wheat High Fructose Corn Syrup free bun. The Russian Dressing is my recipe and it also with out HFSC (the husband is doing an experiment...let that be warning to your ladies...this is life with a scientist). The quantities in this recipe are totally open as you can make as many and as few of these as your wish.

6 hot dog buns
1 to 2 tablespoons of Russian Dressing per dog
6 vegetarian hot dogs, cooked
4-6 cups of sauerkraut, warmed
6 slices of Swiss cheese (you can shred the cheese, but I just put the slices on top)
  1. Heat the hot dogs and the sauerkraut on the stove first. Depending on the vegetarian dog you are using adjust your cook time. Some are more solid than others.
  2. Spread each bun split side up on a foil covered cookie sheet. Spread about 1 to 2 tablespoons of dressing onto each bun. Top that with a split open hot dog. Top that with sauerkraut and a slice of Swiss cheese.
  3. Place under a broiler for about 3 minutes...but keep an eye on it. You don't want a blackened Ruben hot dog.
