We had an All-American themed potluck at work on Friday, so on Thursday night I made a loaf of reuben bread for the first time ever. I’m pleased to say that the bread was a big hit–in fact, one co-worker even said I’m heretofore required to make reuben bread for every potluck. What a compliment!

Thanks, Mom, for the recipe!
