I love Reubens as followers of this blog will attest. I have done Reuben egg rolls, Korean Reubens, and even a New York Reuben. My usual issue with the original Reuben is its portability – it’s messy to eat this big sandwich on the run. So let’s make Ruben fritters. All the same flavors just portable, hot and tasty. This is great brunch or lunch idea. I hope you like it.
