Beet Reuben Sandwich

It might sound a bit weird to make a sandwich using beets but the result was heaven. I got the idea from the Maine Grind in Ellsworth, Maine where I ordered it on a recent trip North. Since then I have made it for friends and family with lots of accolades and recipe requests. The recipe is simple: spread Thousand Island dressing on two slices of bread, place  cooked sliced beets, drained sauerkraut, and a slice of Swiss cheese between the bread slices. Butter the outside of  each slice of bread and grill the sandwich just as you would if you are making a grilled cheese sandwich. You want the cheese to melt and the crust to become golden and lightly browned. What a delicious sandwich. I plan to make it again soon with golden beets.
