This hot turkey sandwich is toasted on rye bread with sauerkraut, turkey meat, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing. Or you can just put it in a toastie maker.
To save time, you can also cook this sammy in a toasted sandwich maker if you like.
I am the writer of this recipe, and am so glad that others have enjoyed this as much as my family has. I will agree with other reviewers, that it is perfectly great to use a homemade thousand island dressing, if you don't have any storebought. I usually use a family recipe, which is very similar to Thousand Island Dressing II, but also adds a little grated onion. If you don't use all of the ingredients, feel free to freeze everything except the dressing for later use. If well packaged, the bread, sauerkraut, turkey, and cheese will all freeze perfectly for a second meal...then you just need the dressing! **On a side note, I kindly ask that if you are going to rate my recipe less than 5 stars, that you rate it based on following the recipe, not on crazy substitutions, or whether you think it is accurately named. ; ) This is my only frustration with AR! - 29 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I LOVE Reuben sandwiches and this was so good! I used reduced fat Swiss cheese and "Thousand Island Dressing" by Darlis Wilfer from this site. These were quick and easy and tasted great! This is a definite keeper and one I'll definitely have to remember for Thanksgiving leftovers! - 23 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I've always made these on the lighter side by using fat free Thousand, one slice of swiss cheese per sandwich, and butter spray. It's a great, healthy alternative to the traditional Reuben! If you can't find marbled rye bread, plain rye or caraway rye will work. - 17 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
