10 Best Sandwiches with Rye Bread Recipes

Rye bread has a pleasant nuttiness that’s light and fresh. It also has hints of malt and pairs well with chocolate or nuts.

But it really shines in these hearty rye bread sandwiches.

You just can’t beat salty meat and gooey cheese, after all. So grab a knife, and let’s get slicing!

1. Reuben Sandwich

One look at the picture above, and I’m already hungry!

Flavor-packed corned beef piled high on delicious rye bread with Swiss cheese and salty sauerkraut…what more could you ask for?

How about some creamy and tangy Russian dressing? Oh yeah, this sandwich is the bomb!

2. Bacon & Egg Salad on Rye Toast

For get sourdough – rye bread is just what you need to level up your next brunch.

This bacon and egg salad on rye toast is packed with flavor. And thanks to the dressing of mayonnaise, dijon, lemon zest, and garlic, it’s irresistible to boot. 

Salty bacon with creamy eggs is always a hit. But that nutty, malty toast pushes it over the edge.

3. Turkey Cran Rye Sandwich

Tired of the same old holiday leftovers? Try this stunning turkey and cranberry on rye!

Sweet, spicy, and oh-so-savory, you’ll love the blend of horseradish mayo, cranberry sauce, and meaty turkey.

Stack it high with Muenster cheese, tomatoes, and sprouts, and every bite is better than the last.  

4. Patty Melts

Patty melts are comforting, filling, and deliciously nostalgic.

They’re the ideal cross between a sandwich and a burger, giving you plenty to munch on without the heavy bread bun. 

The hamburger patty is moist and juicy, and the sautéed onions and melted cheese bring out those savory flavors so well.

Crispy rye bread stands up well to the thick burger and tastes heavenly. So if you’re looking for a delicious lunch or casual dinner, patty melts are it!

5. Corned Beef on Rye with Guinness Braised Onions

This sandwich is really something else. 

Loaded with corned beef and melty, ooey-gooey white cheddar, it’s a lot like the Reuben recipe above.

But instead of sauerkraut, you’ll add a generous serving of Guinness braised onions.

They’re rich and slightly sweet, so they elevate the whole dish. Seriously, don’t skimp on them!

6. Avocado Sandwich

Rye bread isn’t just for meat-eaters, ya know!

This avocado sandwich is loaded with fresh veggies and flavor, along with plenty of color and crunchy texture.

If you’re not vegan, you can use your favorite cheese instead of dairy-free! And feel free to add bacon if you like.

Either way, slather on the homemade garlic aioli for even more flavor and dig in. 

7. Chipotle Mayo Sardines on Rye

Chipotle mayo sardines on rye is a quick and easy lunch with tons of flavor. 

The sardines are salty in the best way, and they’re mixed with a creamy dressing and kicked up by chipotle peppers. 

Toss a few tomatoes in the Air Fryer or oven until they start to blister, then pile it high on toast

8. Ultimate Veggie Crunch Sandwich

You can’t have the ultimate veggie crunch sandwich without the crunchy veggies.

I’m talking bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, and more!

Add tangy mustard and a Thousand Island dressing for a saucy sandwich that you’ll crave day after day.

9. Danish Open-Faced Sandwich

Open-faced sandwiches are hugely popular all over Scandinavia. And this one is as traditional as it gets.

This slice of rye has a big job since it’s got to hold a mix of herring, creamy dressing, cucumbers, radishes, and fresh herbs. 

Lemon juice also adds a hint of tart brightness, and the dill is a must-have for its wonderful aroma.

If you’re not a fan of herring, try other fish like salmon.

10. Spinach, Feta & Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This veggie melt is a thing of beauty!

Spinach, feta, and mozzarella are just the right amount of salty, gooey, and creamy to complement the hearty rye.

The leafy greens bring a nice pop of color, and if you sauté them in garlic and onions, they’ll bring a nice boost of flavor too.
