Grilled Reuben Sandwich

Grilled Reuben Sandwich

I love my panini maker (thank you Tiffany). I have been making a lot of sandwiches so I can use it. Reuben sandwiches are a favorite of my husbands and mine but they can be so fattening. I decided to make them healthier so we could enjoy them guilt free. They taste so good, are easy to make & super quick.

  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tsp sweet pickle relish
  • 1 dash dried mustard

Combine all ingredients to make a 1000 island dressing (or just use bottled dressing if you prefer).

  • 2 pieces of rye bread
  • Pastrami or corn beef (as much as desired for your sandwich) – we use pastrami
  • Sauerkraut (as much as desired for your sandwich)
  • 1 slice of low fat Swiss cheese

Spread desired amount of the 1000 island dressing on both pieces of bread. Add pastrami or corn beef, next add sauerkraut and finally the Swiss cheese. Place in panini maker and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. If you don’t have a panini maker (get one because they are amazing) cook in a skillet, dry. You don’t need to spread butter on the outside pieces of bread to make this sandwich crunchy. It’s so much better for you too! Enjoy.
