Vegetarian Reuben Sammich...non-vegan

Good afternoon...really rough day at work, holiday(Memorial Day), and we were very busy, very. I'm exhausted, and everything hurts, so I'm not going to take a lot of time here today.

First of all, this past Thursday, I had a CT scan for my kidney, but of course don't know the results yet. My doctor should get the results either tomorrow or Wednesday, and then he'll decide which specialist to send me to. I don't care. I just want to find out what's wrong, and how serious it is or isn't, and what can be done about it. Again, please keep me in your prayers. Thanks.

Once again, I don't really have a recipe for this veggie version of a Reuben sammich, but I odn't think it really matters. Sammiches are so much our own individual likes, that you can use as much or as little of the ingredients as you like, or you can add something, leave something out, whatever. This is just one more case of taking a "recipe" and making it your own.

Vegetarian Reuben Sammich
Peel, core, and thinly slice an apple. I chose a Red Delicious for this, but you can use any apple you like.

Peel an onion, cut it in half, and then thinly slice into half moon shapes.

Put the apple and onion in a skillet with some margarine or olive oil, and saute until the apple is soft and the onion has browned somewhat.

Throw in some sauerkraut, I guess I used about half of a 15-oz. can, and stir it all together until the sauerkraut is good and hot.

Spread some brown mustard on two slices of bread...I used sourdough...and put as much cheese as you want on one slice. I used the soy-based vegetarian Swiss-style cheese I found last week, but you can use any kind you want, or leave it out entirely. Up to you!

Spoon a goodly amount of the hot apple/onion/sauerkraut mixture onto the cheese, so that the cheese will soften and almost melt, put the other slice of bread on top, and there ya have it. How easy was that, eh? And if you feel energetic, you can butter the outsides of the bread and grill the whole thing, altho I didn't bother.

Next time, I've got a couple more for you, and may even have more of that, but don't know yet. Until next time, Happy Eating.
