One of the many items associated with Easter is a classic Rueben sandwich, which consists of rye bread (dark or light), corned beef, swiss-style cheese and sauerkraut.  Personally, I’ve never been totally in love with kraut, so I substituted artichoke hearts in this recipe rather than incorporating the more traditional ingredient.  If you enjoy it, feel free to substitute about 1 cup of drained kraut for the artichokes.  Regardless of which way you make it, this dish is a great appetizer for Easter dinner and a tasty addition to any Easter brunch menu.
