Turkey Reuben Sandwich
Whether you call it a Turkey Reuben or a Rachel, this grilled sandwich definitely does not disappoint. Melty Swiss cheesy, tangy Thousand Island dressing, sauerkraut and deli turkey come together on slices of grilled rye bread.
Thousand Island Dressing ½ cup mayonnaise ¼ cup ketchup 2 tablespoon sweet chili sauce 2 tbsp cup sweet relish 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper Turkey Reuben 4 slices rye bread 1 lb Swiss cheese slices 1 lb deli turkey 1 cup sauerkraut 4 tablespoon butter
For the Dressing: Whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, sweet chili sauce, sweet relish, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. For the Sandwich: For each sandwich, spread about 1 tablespoon of the dressing on both pieces of bread. Add 1 ½ slices of cheese to each piece of bread, followed by 4 oz of the deli turkey. Spread ¼ cup of sauerkraut on top of the turkey, then assemble the sandwich by placing the piece of bread with dressing and cheese on top of the sauerkraut-turkey-cheese piece. Butter both sides of the sandwich. Cook in a skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes per side.
Bread - most grocery stores offer very thin slices of rye bread. If you can find a thicker slice, it will hold up better to the weight of this sandwich and you may not need so many napkins!
Sauerkraut - reduce to ⅛ of a cup per sandwich or replace it with coleslaw. Just make sure to drain the coleslaw first or the sandwich will become soggy.
Dressing - this makes more Thousand Island dressing than you'll use on 4 sandwiches. Reduce the recipe by half or keep the remainder in the fridge for a week.
Pastrami is an acceptable substitute in both the Reuben and Rachel sandwiches.
