It’s not a secret that my Air Fryer is my most favorite kitchen tool. Food can be cooked faster and tastes so much better than in the oven. I think you are going to be loving everything about this Air Fryer Reuben Sandwich Recipe.

If you are as big of a fan of the air fryer as I am, be sure to try my Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers and Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks.

Before we get started, I went to the store and bought already cooked corned beef. However, you can easily make your own at home. Check out the recipe for Instant Pot Corned Beef and you’ll be amazed how tender it is!

Why This Recipe Works

  • You only need 6 ingredients
  • They are so easy
  • The bread is super crispy
  • Everyone will devour them
  • Better than fast food
  • Great for all occasions
  • Ideal for dinner, lunch, or potlucks

๐Ÿง€ Ingredients

  • Corned Beef
  • Sauerkraut
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Thousand Island or Russian Dressing
  • Rye Bread (I used regular, but marbled is commonly used)
  • Butter or Oil

โฒ๏ธ Instructions

  1. Begin by buttering the bread.
  2. Add dressing to the first piece of bread and add two pieces of cheese. Then layer the corned beef and sauerkraut. Top with a little bit more dressing and another slice of buttered bread. Add toothpicks so the bread doesn’t fly off while cooking.
  3. Cook in your air fryer at 390 degrees for 5 minutes. Then flip the bread over. The cheese should be on the top side now so it melts done on the other ingredients. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn.

๐Ÿž Recipe FAQs

Can I cook the sandwich in a skillet?

Sure! Not everyone loves the texture of sandwiches in an air fryer. It gets the bread pretty crispy, which I happen to love.

You can butter the bread and cook in a skillet using medium-high heat until it’s golden brown on each side.

What should I serve with Rueben sandwiches?

We love to have chips, fries, pickles, and all sorts of salads. Sometimes, we will eat just the sandwich by itself and it’s perfectly fine.

What kind of dressing do I need?

Where I live, it’s not to common to find Russian Dressing which is traditional on a Reuben. So, I typically make them using Thousand Island Dressing. I like lots of dressing so I will even dip my sandwich into it. YUM!
