Quick Fix Turkey Reuben Sandwiches

Quick fix turkey Reuben sandwiches changed my mind about what I used to refer to as ‘fake Reubens’. I had a thing against turkey Reubens. I apologize, I was wrong. I thought no way could a corned beef-less sandwich be anywhere as good as the classic. Well, this is a mighty good sandwich. And it’s crazy easy to make, too. That’s a lot of wins in a little sandwich.

Quick Fix Turkey Reuben Sandwiches

I could eat my share of quick fix turkey Reuben sandwiches. And I’d even order one at a restaurant. Those would have roasted turkey, and if you have that on hand by all means put some on this sandwich. I used thin-sliced sandwich meat. Thick-sliced would work just as well. No matter what, it’s quick, easy and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 1/3 cup Thousand Island Dressing
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 slices turkey sandwich meat
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut rinsed, drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Lay the bread slices on a cutting board. Divide the dressing between the slices and spread out evenly on one side of each.
  • A Swiss cheese and turkey to two of the slices. Top with the kraut.
  • Add top slices of bread to make sandwiches.
  • Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the butter on the tops of each sandwich.
  • Transfer the sandwiches to the skillet, bread-side down (that is, flip the sandwich as you move it from the cutting board to the skillet).
  • Spread remaining butter over the tops of the sandwiches as they cook.
  • Once the bottoms are done (golden brown and crispy) and the cheese has started to melt, carefully flip the sandwiches. Cook another 3-5 minutes or until that side is golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove from skillet and place on cutting board. Cut each in half and serve.
