Makes: 12 / Preparation time: 15 minutes / Total time: 25 minutes

You can use a light Thousand Island dressing instead of making your own.

12 small dinner rolls

½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

3 tablespoons ketchup

2 teaspoons capers, drained and rinsed well, chopped

1 tablespoon chopped gherkin or sweet pickle

12 ounces thinly sliced corned beef

6 slices baby Swiss cheese, cut in quarters

2 cups finely shredded cabbage

6 tablespoons packaged French-fried onions

Prepare the dinner rolls according to package directions. Slice the dinner rolls in half.

Preheat the broiler.

In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, capers and gherkin. Save some of the mayonnaise mixture to serve on the side if you like. Arrange the bottom rolls on a broiler pan. Spread with some of the mayonnaise mixture and top with slices of corned beef, folding them over. Top with 2 quarter slices of cheese. Broil until the cheese melts.

Remove from the oven, top with shredded cabbage and French-fried onions and the top of the roll. Serve immediately with extra dressing on the side.
