  6. Bake for 7 minutes.
  7. Uncover bread.
  8. Spread the dressing on each half. Top with slices of corned beef, folding each in half (that helps create more dimension in the meat layer). Top with well drained sauerkraut. Finally, arrange cheese slices, slightly overhanging on the edges (the cheese with shrink a little bit during baking).
  9. Place bread back in the oven for 10 to 12 more minutes, to heat everything up and melt the cheese.
