These mini, open-faced reuben sandwiches are piled high with corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut. They're great party appetizers, as you can make 24 servings in just 30 minutes, and they require just 6 ingredients. As well as the corned beef, cheese, and sauerkraut, all you need is cooking spray, rye bread, and store-bought thousand island dressing. They're super-easy to make, as all you have to do is toast the bread in the oven, pile on the rest of the ingredients, then continue to bake until the cheese is melted and everything is warmed through. They're so savory and flavorful, your guests will keep going back for more.
