reuben sandwich + chobani giveaway

HEY. It’s Christmas break! Starting today, I have two glorious weeks off from work to do fun things like develop recipes, stay in my jammies for days at a time and drink obscene amounts of eggnog with amaretto. I may even have a fun little surprise up my sleeve for tomorrow that’ll generate some interesting blog fodder.

But for now, I have an amazing recipe to share with you. I partnered with the fine folks at Chobani (love their company, love their products) to do a guest post and recipe for their blog. I created a twist on the tradition Reuben sandwich and used plain CHO to make a spicy maple dijon dressing that makes this sandwich off-the-charts delicious. Feel free to head on over to the Chobani blog to check out the deets. I promise, you want to make this sandwich.

In return, they are offering up an awesome giveaway for BTHR readers.  Pretty nice people, eh? One reader will win three-32 ounce containers of CHO! That’s a ton of amazing Greek yogurt! And Chobani recently launched the Chobani Kitchen—a great place to go and get some ideas for how to use up all of the protein-rich yogurt in delicious recipes (I’m eyeing the Spicy Salmon Cornmeal Cakes).

  1. Melissa says

    I LOVE Chobani… so much so that I always end up eating it by itself for breakfast. I need to try it in recipes, I’m digging the Chobani Pumpkin Muffins recipe!!

  2. Lola says

    Zomg! I’d so love to be paid in Chobani for writing a recipe and blog.

    The Thai red curry sounds delicious and so does the Chicken and White Bean Chili.

  3. Donna says

    I am a huge Chobani fan as well, YUM! ALL these recipes look great! However, I would have to say the Pumpkin Spice Roulade… looks heavenly! 😉

  4. Julia says

    I’m going to try the Mozzarella-Ricotta Flatbread. I’m a sucker for new ways to spice up my weekly homemade pizza, and I’m trying to get my boyfriend to love greek yogurt as much as I do. I think this might just do the trick!

  5. says

    I’ve always just eaten my yogurt plain or mixed with fruit. I never knew there were so many things you could make with yogurt! The Mozzarella-Ricotta Flatbread is calling my name! I also can’t wait to try the tzatziki sauce. Great giveaway :)

  6. Jocelyne says

    I’ve recently discovered Chobani yogurt and love it–especially the pineapple one! The recipes all look great but I would definitely like to try the grilled salmon with chobani-wasabi sauce.

  7. Neena says

    I LOVE Chobani yogurt! I would love to make the coconut shrimp recipe with Chobani. The ingredient list is short and I’m completely intrigued!

  8. says

    After seeing how much you love greek yogurt, I finally tried some. OH MY GOODNESS, it’s so delicious!

    I’m definitely going to be trying the roasted butternut squash soup. It’d be perfect for the cold drizzly day we’re having in Florida.

  9. Ashley G. says

    All of the recipes look delicious! I love coleslaw and make it frequently, so I love the idea of using Chobani instead of mayo! Will definitely have to try that sometime! PS Your reuben is making my stomach growl!

  10. Steph says

    My pregnancy cravings are seriously considering braving this snow storm to get the ingredients for that sandwich RIGHT NOW. OMG NOM

  11. Haley Holmes says

    Of course living in Texas I loooove Mexican food! I would love to try the 3 Layer Mexican Dip. I love dips and the Chobani yogurt would be a great substitute for sour cream.

  12. says

    Definitely the Mexican 3 layer dip recipe! I woke up this morning craving it but knew it was so unhealthy…but ith chobani everything becomes much healthier sans sour cream :)

  13. Bridget says

    I have had a bag of sweet potatoes sitting in my fridge, just waiting to be eaten, so the Sweet Potato Salad sounds like the perfect recipe for me!

  14. Carl G says

    Dip dip dip, We love dip in our home! And Chobani!!! Already tested the Cucumber Feta Cho dip and will be serving it along with Warm Spinach Arti-Cho-ke dip with crispy pita chips and veggies for our New Years gathering. Absolutely delicious and soooo much healthier!

    The roasted red pepper spread looks amazing (and so does that photo of the yummy wrap it’s on!)
