Reuben “Nachos”

Left over corned beef? Last night, I had the late night munchies. I didn’t want more corned beef and cabbage (our St. Patrick’s Day Dinner). So, I stood there and mused for a while. This is what I came up with. (This dish was an impulsive one, so I didn’t even consider the idea that I would write about it, let alone decide to photograph it. My husband said it was so delicious that he insisted that I write about it. So, if you would like to make this dish “pretty”, use a squeeze bottle to zig zag some thousand island on top!

First, cook your fries. Air frying is a great way to do that. Use the broiler to melt Swiss cheese on top of your fries. I didn’t have Swiss cheese, so I sprinkled shredded Parmesan, this was still a good option. In a bowl, mix your corned beef and some sauerkraut. Next top with chunks or shredded corned beef and sauerkraut mix. (If you need a good corned beef and cabbage recipe, check here.) Finally add the thousand island dressing. I made homemade thousand island, and will be sharing that recipe in my weekly digest email. So, make sure you subscribe so that you do not miss it!
