Recipe by kittycatmom
Lower fat version of a popular sandwich! One of my favorite sammies. I frequently make this in my George Foreman Grill. For me, the greatest part of this is that it doesn't call for the standard Thousand Island dressing, which I hardly ever have on hand.
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ketchup
- 8 slices rye bread
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sauerkraut, well drained
- 3⁄4 lb sliced deli turkey
- 4 ounces swiss cheese, thinly sliced
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine mayonnaise and ketchup in a small bowl and whisk until well mixed. Butter each slice of bread evenly on one side. Place bread buttered side down on work surface and spread with mayonnaise mixture, then pile sauerkraut on top. Arrange turkey slices on top of sauerkraut, then place cheese on turkey. Top with remaining bread slices, placing buttered sides up.
- Warm large skillet over medium-low heat. Or use a pannini press or George Foreman grill. Place sandwiches in skillet and grill until bread is brown and crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully turn sandwiches and continue to grill until second side is brown and crisp, another 5 to 7 minutes, pressing down once or twice with spatula to flatten. If all sandwiches won't fit in skillet together, grill two at a time. Place finished sandwiches on a platter and tent with foil to keep warm while cooking remaining sandwiches.
