4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Smoked turkey stands in for corned beef in this lightened variation of a deli favorite. Serve with a pickle wedge and chips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Spread about 3/4 teaspoon mustard over each bread slice. Place 1 cheese slice on each of 4 bread slices. Divide turkey evenly over cheese. Top each serving with 2 1/2 tablespoons sauerkraut and 1 tablespoon dressing. Top each serving with 1 bread slice, mustard sides down.

Step 2

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 sandwiches to pan; top with another heavy skillet. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden; remove sandwiches from pan, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and sandwiches.

Why wouldn't you serve them to company?

So good

We've had these many times.  I typically omit the mustard and use our panini press so no oil is needed.  Very tasty and easy.

I have to say it was great. I made my own 1000 dressing which was ketchup, sweet pickle relish and light mayo. I was afraid it would be a failure recipe but it was really good. I grilled them like grilled cheese as well.

Only three stars because this is just a classic sandwich recipe for which you don't really need a recipe. But it's good! No need for oil if you use cooking spray. I made the thousand-island dressing elsewhere on the CL website, and it was easy to make and better than bottled.

I was expecting greatness. These sandwiches were good, but nothing amazing. I even used full-fat thousand island dressing...

These sandwiches are good. I wouldn't serve them to company, but for a light, healthy take on the classic reuben, we really enjoyed these! I will make them again.

Tried this for a quick evening meal and both my husband & I thought it was delicious. I was unable to find any rye bread in our area so had to use whole wheat but it turned out great. It is a keeper.

Delicious, simple, and very filling meal! I went light on the sauerkraut, but boyfriend loved it. Thousand island adds a great sweetness.
