    I've been eating Hebrew National products for over 50 years. There is nothing better than a HN hot dog, with spicy deli mustard and cold kraut, on a summer's day. The second best is homemade chili and onions, on a HN hot dog. Oh yes, kraut is optional. It really doesn't get any better than this, unless you also have an ice cold cream soda with either of the aforementioned. :)

    The perfect Hot Dog! Yup, the only thing missing would be to find Rye bread hot dog rolls, then you could make them with swiss cheese melted in the rye hot dog rolls. Now that would be a thing of beauty!

    We love kraut and spicy mustard, and Hebrew National is our favorite brand of hot dog. Great combo!

    As one who keeps kosher, I would recommend the Tuffuti parave cheese as a substitute. They make a white soy cheese that would work well on your Reuben.

    My first reaction when I read the recipe was "where is the cheese" so I agree with the other comments. I like the idea of rinsing the sauerkraut but no sugar, brown or other wise. Also nix on the caraway seeds. Caraway is so strong it blocks out the flavor of everything else-maybe whole wheat buns would help. To the healthy living user, too much deviation (venison?) I also think the bun needs toasting. There is light thousand island dressing in the stores. I am definitely going to try this with my family.
