Recipes Turkey Reuben Panini (Entree, Holidays)

Number of Servings
    • 8 (½ oz.) slices thin-slice rye bread
    • ¼ cup fat-free Thousand Island dressing
    • 8 (½ oz.) thin slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
    • ¼ cup refrigerated sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
    • 8 oz. deli low-sodium turkey breast (such as Boar’s Head®)



Spread all pieces of bread slice evenly with 1½ teaspoons dressing. Place one cheese slice on dressed side of each slice and top each with 1 tablespoon sauerkraut and 2 ounces turkey. Top each sandwich with 1 cheese slice and 1 bread slice, dressed side down. Coat the outside of the sandwich (top and bottom) with cooking spray. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add sandwiches to the pan. Place a cast-iron or other heavy skillet on top of sandwiches and press gently to flatten sandwiches (leave the cast-iron skillet on the sandwiches while they cook). Cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned and cheese melts.
