Sandwiches are a quick and easy summer meal when you don’t want to turn on the oven or spend time in the kitchen. Turkey Reubens are a delicious and healthy alternative to Corned Beef Reubens. Thinly sliced honey maple turkey is sandwiched between melted swiss cheese and shredded sauerkraut. Dip it in Thousand Island dressing or try it with spicy mustard for a few less calories. Bread and butter pickles go perfectly with this tasty sandwich.
2 cups canned sauerkraut, drained
Thousand Island dressing
12 slices pumpernickel bread
6 slices swiss cheese
1 1/4 pounds sliced deli turkey – Boar’s Head honey maple sliced really THIN
1. Spread Thousand Island dressing over 1 side of bread and place 1 slice cheese over dressing on each. Layer sauerkraut next and then turkey. This way sauerkraut is in the middle and doesn’t get bread soggy. Spread dressing on 1 side of remaining bread and put on top of each sandwich. (or serve it on the side for dipping)
Spread butter on outside of both sides of sandwich. Place on a hot griddle or skillet. Cook about 5 minutes until bread is golden and flip. Cook 5 minutes on other side or until bread is golden and cheese is slightly melted. Serve warm.
