directions

  • Prepare Russian dressing: Whisk mayonnaise and ketchup in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in capers and pickle (or relish).
  • To prepare sandwiches: Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, 4 minutes. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until it has wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a plate.
  • Coat the pan with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and return to medium heat. Add the bread; divide cheese equally among the slices. Divide sauerkraut between 2 slices and divide the spinach mixture between the other 2 slices; cook until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer sandwich halves to a cutting board. Divide the dressing between the spinach halves. Carefully place the sauerkraut halves on top. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.

    This is a FANTASTIC sandwich! Just loved everything about this. I had a yellow onion on hand so used that instead of red. I also took a shortcut and just added some chopped capers to my favorite Marie's 1000island dressing (and loved that addition). Like another reviewer I had enough filling left for a third sandwich. Outstanding - thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by FLKeysJen

    Yum...there's nothing I didn't love about this sandwich. I would say I loved it even more than a traditional rueben, just because I didn't have to feel guilty for eating it. Tons less fat, calories and sodium. Thank you, thank you for the posting a great recipe that'll let me enjoy my rueben in peace! lol

    Exceptional is the right word for this sandwich...my favorite of the year! I'm a huge reuben fan but much prefer this to the corned beef version. I used extra capers since I love them, and was surprised how well they went with sauerkraut and spinach. Unless you are using big bread like a sub roll, the filling is enough for three sandwiches.
