The Reuben is a staple on sandwich shop menus. It’s simple and tasty – corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and 1000 Island dressing, served on Rye toast. Yum!
Unfortunately, I steer clear of Reubens when dining out. For one, I’m not a fan of 1000 Island dressing and secondly, most restaurants grill them on a flat top with butter, making them high in calories.
So I’ve created my own version of the Reuben, light on the calories and drizzled with a zesty Jalapeno Ranch dressing as opposed to 1000 Island.
WHAT YOU NEED:
– 2 Slices of Food for Life 7 Sprouted Grain bread
– 2 Slices of Applegate Naturals Roasted Turkey Breast
– 1 oz. Swiss Cheese, cut into slices (comes out to be about 3 rectangular slices)
– 2 tbsp Sauerkraut
– A drizzle of Naturally Fresh Jalapeno Ranch dressing (about a 1/2 tbsp)
**You should be able to find most of these products at your local grocery store. I purchased all my ingredients at Publix.
Lay out the 2 slices of bread on baking tray. (I prepared mine on a paper plate before transferring to my toaster oven tray.)
Place two slices of turkey on one of the slices of bread.
Place cheese slices on top of the turkey.
Spoon the sauerkraut on top of the turkey and cheese.
Drizzle the Jalapeno Ranch dressing on top of the sauerkraut.
Leave sandwich open-faced. Place in toaster oven (or regular oven) for about 10 minutes on 350 degrees.
Put plain slice of bread on top of the other slice.
Cut into pieces, if desired, and ENJOY!
For those who don’t eat meat, I’ll also be posting a recipe for a vegetarian Reuben. Hope you all enjoy my 350 Calorie Turkey Reuben! Let me know how yours turns out.
