This turkey Reuben sandwich (or sometimes called a Rachel Sandwich) is a slightly different take on the classic Reuben. Instead of corned beef, sliced turkey is used, and instead of sauerkraut, coleslaw is used. The sandwich is stacked with Swiss cheese, sliced turkey, coleslaw and thousand island dressing and then grilled in the pan. You can make your own coleslaw or buy it from the store. This makes a delicious lunch or dinner for any night of the week. Enjoy.
8 slices rye bread
8 slices deli turkey
8 slices Swiss cheese
½ cup thousand island dressing
1 cup prepared coleslaw (or more)
Step 1: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spread butter on one side of a slice of the rye bread. On the other side of the slice of bread, spread on a layer of Thousand Island dressing. Top with 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 2 slices of turkey, ¼ cup of the prepared coleslaw. Top with an additional slice of cheese. Spread butter on one side of another slice of bread. On the other side spread a layer of Thousand Island dressing. Place butter side up on top the sandwich.
Step 2: Place into the skillet butter side down and cook, while pressing down occasionally with a spatula, until golden brown on the bottom. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown and the cheese has melted (about 3-4 minutes per side). Repeat until all of the sandwiches are cooked.
