Love these healthy appetizers for a game day party. They look awesome done in a waffle maker #ad

When I go to Costco, I have to take the whole family. My little one will try every single food sample. even food she normally doesn’t like. My husband looks at all the Christmas decorations, and I love that I find new products to try. During this trip picked up a bag of TortillaLand Tortillas. I was totally intrigued that these were uncooked tortillas that I would cook at home and make something healthy out of. In other words, they would be fresh, hence I found them in the refrigerator section. They only have five ingredients, so it is important to keep them refrigerated.  When you cook them, they will puff up. So cool. They have much better taste and texture than the precooked tortillas I have bought.

I was telling my Dad about them as I knew he would be intrigued that they were uncooked. After all, he is a food nerd same as me. He suggested I make a Reuben out of them. Seems like great idea to me. These are like fancy sandwiches perfect for a game day party. I made them in my waffle iron, so they would have that cool waffle look on top.

I also used three tortillas, same as a club sandwich. What a rebel! The first layer is the Thousand Island dressing and corned beef from the deli section. Then another tortilla topped by lacey Swiss cheese and sauerkraut. Since a reuben is usually served on rye bread, I gave my tortillas a “rye bread” feel by first brushing them with oil then sprinkling caraway seeds, salt and pepper on top. Oh my, oh my, did I love the bursts of flavor from the spices on top.

In order to make this recipe even easier, I did not cook the TortillaLand tortillas before assembling. I simply let them cook in my waffle iron. If you don’t have a waffle iron, make them on a griddle or nonstick skillet. After they have been cooked, I like to cut them into strips, more like pieces of a  sandwich. That makes them the perfect finger food to grab and munch as you are riveted to the TV watching the big game.

What a fun take on a reuben sandwich. Perfect for a game day party.
