Consume Yourself: Soy Dog Reuben Sliders

Soy Dog Reuben Slider


In my last post, Consume Yourself: My 350 Calorie Turkey Reuben, I promised a recipe for a vegetarian version of the Reuben. Today I’m going to fulfill that promise.

Since Kerri and Michelle are both vegetarians, they are always coming up with creative ways of turning non-vegetarian dishes into meatless ones.

Their version of the Reuben features sliced Smart Dogs and sweet pickle chips – perfect for the Reuben-loving vegetarian.



– 3 Lightlife Smart Dogs Veggie Protein Links

– 1 tbsp Olive Oil

– 6 tbsp Sauerkraut

– 2 oz. Swiss Cheese (about 6 rectangular slices, cut into squares)

– 12 Slices of Rubschlager Rye Cocktail Bread

– 12 Sweet Pickle Chips

– 6 tbsp 1000 Island dressing

**This recipe yields 6 sliders.
