Grilled Turkey Reuben Sandwiches


This grilled turkey Reuben is a twist on the original and a hit with everyone. I got this recipe from a restaurant I worked at in college, and it's surprisingly easy to make. Feel free to adjust the sauerkraut to taste, but don't skimp on the Thousand Island dressing!

2 sandwiches


  • 10 ounces sliced deli turkey meat

  • 1 cup sauerkraut, drained

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 4 slices marble rye bread

  • 4 slices Swiss cheese

  • 4 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing, or to taste


  1. Place turkey onto a microwave-safe plate, and place sauerkraut into a microwave-safe bowl. Warm separately in the microwave for 30 seconds each.

  2. Spread butter generously onto one side of each rye bread slice. Place bread onto a work surface with the buttered sides facing down. Spread Thousand Island dressing on the top of each slice.

  3. Divide warmed sauerkraut between two slices of bread. Top those slices with 1/2 of the turkey, then 1/2 of the Swiss cheese. Flip the remaining two bread slices over and place on top to create sandwiches.

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwiches into the hot skillet and cook until bread is lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side.
