We recently attended my hubby's work Christmas party. During the cocktail hour, they served mini Reuben pockets. It was like a Reuben sandwich inside pizza dough balls. I lost count at how many hubby ate throughout the 2 hours. I just knew that I would need to recreate these at home for our next family party. These were made for our New Year's Day party where we watched our TCU Horned Frogs win the Rose Bowl. We should have lots of good luck and prosperity since we ate cabbage in both the Reuben cups and creamy cole slaw. I also made Shannon's southern style black eyed peas. They were Delectalicious!
I was short on time, so I decided to buy some mini phyllo cups. These were simple to make with only a few ingredients. I also used pastrami instead of corned beef. I hope you enjoy them as much as my hubby.
1 - 15 count mini phyllo cups (found in frozen section of grocery store by desserts)
1/4 lb sliced pastrami deli meat, diced
Spicy deli mustard
1/4 cup prepared sauerkraut, chopped
4 slices Swiss cheese, diced
Thousand Island dressing
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the mini phyllo cups in a mini muffin pan or line up on a baking sheet. Place some pastrami in each phyllo cup, squirt in some deli mustard, add some sauerkraut, and top with Swiss cheese. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve with some Thousand Island dressing. I told you they were easy to make. Enjoy!
