Lobster Reuben

Makes: 3-4 sandwiches

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3-5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


for the russian dressing-

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoons relish (I used delicious homemade zucchini relish)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

to assemble-

1 lb lobster meat (I used claw and knuckle meat)

8 slices rye bread

1-2 slices swiss cheese per sandwich




  1. In a small bowl combine all of the dressing ingredients.  Stir until combined.  Slowly add dressing to the lobster meat until you have "dressed" the lobster to your preference. (Some people like a tiny bit of dressing...others like to bath in it.  So it's up to you here!)  Set aside.
  2. Set oven to broil.
  3. Butter and toast slices of bread, top with swiss cheese, dressed lobster, and a small amount of drained sauerkraut.  Place under broiler for several minutes to melt cheese but watch very carefully so you don't burn the bread!
