REUBEN’S FAMOUS SANDWICHES

Two people claim to have originated the Reuben sandwich.
1 - Arnold Reuben in 1914 of the once famous New York delicatessen, 'Reuben's’

2 - Arnold Kolakofsky, an Omaha grocer. A friend of Kolakofsky entered it in a national sandwich contest in 1956 and won.  It gained popularity at this time.


Here are some recipes from Reuben's Deli of New York:
