  1. Cut each slice of cheese into 4 squares, and set aside. Spread 1 teaspoon of Thousand Island dressing on each piece of bread, and top with 1 slice of corned beef or pastrami, folding the slice as necessary to accommodate the shape of the bread. Top with 1/2 tablespoon of sauerkraut and 1 square of cheese.
  2. Place the Reubens on a baking sheet, and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the Reubens are hot. Transfer to a serving platter, and serve hot.
