The 'Reuben Pickle Dog' served at this year's 2016 Minnesota State Fair introduces a simpler take on the classic Reuben sandwich.

While ingredients like sauerkraut and cheese are an essential part of a classic Reuben sandwich, they are typically served between grilled between slices of rye bread. The Reuben Pickle Dog reinterprets the classic sandwich recipe without the breaded bun and uses only a slice of slice of deli roast beef to contain a filling of cream cheese, dill pickle, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.

Many fair foods embrace bread—especially if it is deep-fried—as a main ingredient and even without an exterior that's covered in bread, this fair food dish could be classified as something that resembles the form of a corndog, a hot dog or even a pared-down meat wrap.
