Reuben Sandwiches

Photo: José Picayo

With sauerkraut, corned beef, and rye bread, sodium is a serious issue in a traditional Reuben. Add dressing and cheese, and the saturated fat and calories start to climb, too. Not to fear: Our lighter, lower-sodium version is just as delicious. Chili sauce is a ketchup-based sauce. If you can't find it, substitute ketchup.

Ingredients

  • Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced dill pickle
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated onion
  • Sandwiches:
  • 8 (3/4-ounce) slices rye bread
  • 3 ounces Swiss cheese, shaved (about 3/4 cup)

  • 1 cup organic sauerkraut, drained well

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. 2. To prepare dressing, combine the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well.
  3. 3. To prepare sandwiches, place bread slices in a single layer on a heavy baking sheet. Broil bread 1 1/2 minutes or until toasted. Turn bread over; broil for 1 minute or until lightly toasted. Remove 4 slices. Divide cheese evenly among remaining 4 slices, sprinkling it over lightly toasted sides. Broil 1 minute or until cheese melts. Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons dressing over the cheese-coated side of each bread slice; top each serving with 1 ounce corned beef, 1/4 cup sauerkraut, and remaining bread slices. Serve immediately.
