Turkey Reubens

Prep time 4 mins
Cook time 8 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving: 1 sandwich)
A traditional deli-style Reuben sandwich is high in fat and sodium because of the generous layers of corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut. We've reduced the fat by using turkey, reduced-fat cheese, and reduced-fat dressing. Although it's still fairly high in sodium, our version has about half the sodium of a traditional sandwich.


  • 8 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey breast
  • 8 (1-ounce) slices rye bread (such as Cobblestone Mill)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat Thousand Island dressing
  • 3/4 cup canned Bavarian-style sauerkraut, drained
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat, reduced-sodium Swiss cheese (such as Boar's Head Lacey Swiss)
  • Cooking spray
