Rinse the sauerkraut and drain. Press out all water and place on a triple thickness of paper towels. Brush one side of each slice of bread with softened butter. Place 4 slices bread on work surface buttered side down. Spread each of those slices with dressing. Layer each with ½ ounce sliced cheese, 2 ounces corned beef, 3 tablespoons sauerkraut, and the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining bread, buttered side up. Preheat the Cuisinart™ Griddler fitted with the griddle plates in the closed griddle position to 375°F. Arrange the sandwiches (depending on the shape of the bread, you will be able to cook 2 or 4 sandwiches) evenly spaced on the bottom griddle plate. Close Griddler™ and apply medium pressure for 10 seconds. Cook until bread is toasty, filling is warm and cheese is melted, about 4 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with mustard.
