Lay out the bread slices and spread 1 side with butter. Turn and spread other side with Thousand Island Dressing. Lay meat on the dressing spread side of 4 of the slices, tucking in any overhang.
Spread sauerkraut evenly atop the corned beef, then distribute the chesse over the sauerkraut. Top with remaining bread slices, butter side out, and press down tightly.
