Reuben Mac and Cheese
The inspiration for this recipe came from the deli side of this hybrid operation that combines a deli, bakery and restaurant in one building. The mac and cheese features the flavors of a traditional Reuben sandwich—sauerkraut, corned beef and melted Swiss cheese—differentiated with 2510 Restaurant’s signature Reuben dipping sauce.
