Expert Tips

The Reuben sandwich may have been invented in 1914, at Reuben’s Delicatessen in New York City, for the actress Annette Seelos. Another theory contends that Reuben Kay, a grocer in Omaha, Nebraska, invented the sandwich combination during a poker game in 1955. The Reuben then became famous, it’s said, because one of the poker players entered Kay’s recipe in a contest and won.

To make an Open-Faced Rachel casserole, use smoked turkey breast in place of the corned beef in this recipe.

Serve this casserole with purchased potato salad, crisp kosher dill pickles and deli-style cookies such as macaroons, black-and-whites, blondies and brownies. Don’t forget the cream soda.
