Hyvee Culinary Expert TipNo time to make the corned beef from scratch? Don't worry! You can use leftover corned beef from St. Paddy's Day, or reach for deli-sliced pastrami.
Place hashbrowns and sauerkraut on a clean kitchen towel. Tightly roll up and press to remove moisture. Transfer hash browns and sauerkraut to a bowl. Stir in eggs, flour, and bread crumbs. Form potato mixture into six fritters.
Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry 3 fritters at a time for 10 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through. Drain. Repeat with remaining 3 tablespoons oil and fritters.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut corned beef against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Spread salad dressing on 6 bread slices. Layer each with Colby cheese, corned beef, horseradish sauce, and/or fresh dill, if desired. Top with fritters and Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining bread slices. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet; bake for 8 minutes or just until cheese melts. Cut sandwiches in half to serve.
