bunch of lunch

grilled swiss on rye with sauerkraut

A few months ago a co-worker brought a George Foreman grill into the office because she didn't want it anymore and she thought perhaps someone might want to make grilled cheese sandwiches on it. So yesterday I forgot the frozen burrito that was to become my lunch, and I figured it was an opportunity to put ol' George Foreman to the test. So I went to store and bought some fixings, and now I can say that George makes a damn fine grilled cheese. But it wasn't just any old grilled cheese, it was a grilled swiss on rye with sauerkraut. Did I invent a new sandwich, or has this been done before? It's sort of like a Reuben without the corned beef and that awful thousand island dressing. Damn tasty. It's my new favorite sandwich.

if it is a new sandwich, I need to give it a name. Any suggestions?

I don't know about a name. I'll have to try 7 or 8 of them to inspire me. By this I mean that is sounds a good sammich.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you...The Cheesy Kraut!

(I was trying to come up with something along the lines of "Krauts invade Switzerland," but it's too early)

Hmmm, I like the way you're thinking. Those WWII references always work best if you can somehow make fun of the French for surrendering, though ...

(I'm kidding French people! Je t'aime!)
