Ingredients:
1 1/4 Angus Beef, or your favorite ground, I used 80/20 Angus
Sliced corned beef, I used a thicker slice from my local deli and I used 2 slices per burger
Swiss cheese slices, I used 2 slices per burger
2 Tablespoons or more Sauerkraut, I used silver Floss Bavarian style (with caraway seeds), drained well*
2 Tablespoons or more per bun Thousand Island Dressing
Pretzel Buns, or your favorite bun, toasted
I love burgers. Always have. I also love Rueben Sandwiches and I thought the two would be a match made in burger heaven. This was a fun burger to make and a delicious burger to eat!
Where this epic burger creation is my own for #BurgerMonth 2016, I would love to thank Certified Angus Beef, Cowboy Charcoal, Char-broil, Dreamfarm, Cabot Cheese, Grill Master Club, American Lamb Board, and CuttingBoard.com for the kick butt grill prize packages!
It is a great privilege for me to participate in #BurgerMonth2016, hosted by Kita of Girl Carnivore & Pass The Sushi.
May is National Burger Month! Kita from Girl Carnivore has put together a wonderful event full of delicious burgers from 60 of the most talented food bloggers
Before grilling your burger, take your sauerkraut out of the liquid. I find it best to use several paper towels and squeeze the liquid out. The secret to a good Rueben is not to have the bread or bun soggy from the sauerkraut. Set aside.
Prepare meat into patties.
I made 3 burger patties from 1 1/4 pounds of Angus beef. I grilled each burger until my desired choice, medium well. After I flipped the burgers, I topped each patty with 2 thick slices of corned beef, folded to fit on top of each burger. I then placed 2 slices of cheese on each burger patty.
Grill or toast the buns and top each side with thousand island dressing.
To assemble your burger, put burger on top of bottom bun that has thousand island on it. On top of the cheese of the burger, top with sauerkraut and finish with top bun. Enjoy!

American Lamb Board – (4) ALB prize boxes 5 lbs of ground lamb, an apron and a meat thermometer

I think sauerkraut gets a bad rap, it’s only cabbage! The secret to a good sandwich and burger is to drain it well. I love this burger. Yum!

I go for any burger with lots of cheese, or a portabello mushroom burger

You can see the Swiss cheese melting on this burger. It was yummy.

I have to have onions and cheese on my burger

This burger has lots of cheese. I love onions on my burgers too but I was trying to duplicate a Rueben sandwich into burger form. You can always add onions.
