Grilled Turkey Sandwich Special Reuben Style

Updated on January 13, 2015

Grilled Turkey Sandwich Special Reuben-Style

When we are wanting a tasty sandwich, we enjoy these hot grilled turkey sandwiches that are my take-off of a Reuben sandwich. This is a pleasing meal idea for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. It's almost as easy as making a grilled cheese sandwich. Just plan ahead to have the ingredients needed, and you can have these sandwiches ready in no time. We like adding sliced tomatoes to give a little extra juicy zip to the sandwich. Most times we use flavorful Campari tomatoes in the off-gardening season when we don't have our own garden tomatoes. We buy Campari's at the supermarket. The Thousand Island dressing is easy to find in the stores on the salad dressing/condiment aisle.

If you or your children think sauerkraut is too strong-flavored, I have sometimes rinsed it with water, drained and blotted it so it tastes milder. Sauerkraut is reported to be a healthy addition to a person's diet. But, you can opt to leave it out. If Swiss cheese is not liked, try Havarti, provolone, or cheddar.

I love the marble rye bread. We have found it at supermarket bakeries. If not available, we also enjoy a Russian dark rye bread.

Not much more is needed for a complete dinner. Add what you have at home. . . fruit, an easy salad, or raw veggies. Enjoy!

Ingredients For Grilled Turkey Sandwich (Reuben -Style)

  • Amount Of Ingredients Needed Depends On Number Of Sandwiches:
  • 1 pound deli sliced turkey (Used natural oven browned, or smoked)
  • 1 loaf marble rye bread (substitute dark rye or light rye bread_)
  • 1 jar or can sauerkraut
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Swiss cheese, sliced
  • Thousand Island salad dressing
  • Butter or coconut oil for pan grilling


  1. Here's how to make one sandwich.
  2. Drain the amount of sauerkraut needed for your sandwiches.
  3. Heat sauerkraut just long enough to warm, in the microwave, or in a small pan on stovetop.
  4. Lay 2 slices of bread out per sandwich. Butter both slices and spread Thousand Island Dressing on top.
  5. Put one single layer of Swiss cheese to fit one slice of bread.
  6. Build up that slice of bread with sliced tomatoes.
  7. Add the drained sauerkraut.
  8. Add thin-sliced turkey.
  9. Put the top slice of bread on to cover and butter the top. It is ready to grill in your frying pan or on griddle.
  10. Carefully holding the filled sandwich, turn butter side down in pan.
  11. Grill one side, butter the dry top, flip over to grill the 2nd side.
  12. Or, make it a panini if you own that appliance.
  13. If there are several people in your family make the sandwiches assembly-line style.
  14. I hope you enjoy them.

      Unfortunately, we don't have any of these ingredients here! I'll have to try it next time we're back Stateside. I like that you use healthier turkeynfor this reuben. You have a nice writing voice. Voted up!

      This looks really good. I like turkey better than corned beef.
