Reuben Breakfast Sandwich

Today is Fat Tuesday, tomorrow is March… things are truly starting to look up. I’m celebrating Fat Tuesday not with Packzi, but with this Reuben Breakfast Sandwich. Considering my two sides of my family are Kelly and O’Malley… I’m going to be giving lots of Irish recipes leading up to St. Patrick’s Day.

This Reuben breakfast sandwich is honestly to die for. Plus, I don’t use Thousand Island Dressing…. what do I use instead? Welllllll, a few weeks ago I went to the Chicago McDonald’s Big Mac Launch Party. They gave us these amazing goodie bags after the event. What did I get in the bag??? One of the 10,000 bottles of Big Mac Sauce specially made just for the release of the new sizes. Soooooo, yeah, this Reuben breakfast sandwich is then topped with BIG MAC SAUCE.

If you’re dieting, then this definitely isn’t the breakfast sandwich for you. If you’re looking to treat yourself….. this is RIGHT up your alley. After making and photographing these, I told myself I would only eat a half a sandwich… then the half was gone, and I found myself eating the other half. Some friends tried the other sandwich, and one offered for me to move in with them to cook for them. To say these were a success I thiiiiink is an understatement.

That yollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllk.
