I love how my kids celebrate everything. Seriously, if there’s an event they are all over it! There are the obvious holiday’s like Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Easter. But my kids don’t stop there.
If we have a birthday to celebrate, then you can be sure balloons and streamers will cover our living room. Paper pennants and paper helmets line our stair case for the Super Bowl. We have Lincoln hats on President’s Day, Pilgrim Hats on Thanksgiving, Stars for the 4th and cone-shaped party hats on New Year’s. It wouldn’t be a holiday without some sort of brightly colored paper craft. I just adore that about kids.
The one holiday the kids don’t make much for is St. Patty’s day. I don’t have an explanation. Shamrocks are fun to make and everyone loves rainbows. I think it just gets lost between the hoopla of Valentine’s Day and the anticipation of Easter. We don’t forget about St. Patty’s day completely. We do wear green and we try to eat as much festive food as possible! We consume minted desserts and green drinks almost daily. And now I’ve added the Reuben to our St. Patty’s Day celebration!
This Reuben braid was so easy. It started with a thawed loaf of Rhodes bread dough. I rolled it out, snipped the sides then piled the middle with peppery turkey pastrami, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut! It came out of the oven golden brown and fragrant! The entire family loved it! I don’t think I can wait until next St. Patty’s Day to eat this again. I think we might be having Easter Reubens too!

If you love a Reuben you will love this impressive concoction. It has all of the flavor braided into a great looking table trophy.Baked Reuben Braid
1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough, or 12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1/3 cup thousand island salad dressing
1/2 pound thinly sliced turkey pastrami
8 slices Swiss cheese
2 cups sauerkraut, drained
1 egg white, beaten
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Roll loaf or combined dinner rolls into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 10-15 minutes.
Remove wrap from dough and pour dressing lengthwise in a 4-inch strip down center of dough. Top with pastrami, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut. Make cuts 1 1/2-inches apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2-inch of filling. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. Then braid strips alternately, left over right. Finish by pulling last strip over and tucking under braid.
Lift braid with both hands and place on a large sprayed baking sheet. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with caraway seeds.
Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice to serve.
