Reuben Bratwurst Subs

Rubens is a classic deli sandwich where Russian dressing and sauerkraut are just screaming to be re-imagined into a sub. Russian Dressing is Thousand Islands spicy cousin and pairs perfectly with briny sauerkraut and hearty Butcher's Select Bratwurst. All combined together on a buttery grilled sub bun. To really get that full deli feel, pair with a giant pickle.

PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 10 minutes
YIELD: 4 servings


  • 1 tsp avocado oil, or other neural oil
  • 1 pkg Butcher Select Bratwurst
  • plant-based butter
  • 4 sub buns, preferably a grainy hearty type

Russian Dressing

  • ½ cup plant-based mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp ketchup or Heniz Chili Sauce

  • 1 tbsp white onion, finely minced
  • ½ tbsp sugar

  • 1 tsp plant-based worcestershire


  1. In a medium nonstick pan over medium heat, add oil and once hot add bratwurst. Cook for 6-8 minutes, turning regularly.
