I secretly love reubens. I never used to because I had never had one and just assumed that I wouldn't like it because of the icky sauerkraut. My mother used to try to make us eat sauerkraut whenever she made it because she would take out a whole can of it and then have a ton left over. My sisters and I thought it was gross and never tried it.
Then my boyfriend and I went out to dinner one night and he ordered a reuben and made me try it. It was actually wicked good. I was surprised that I liked it but obviously didn't tell my mom that! :) Don't worry, I still won't eat sauerkraut unless it is on this delicious sandwich.
This is my boyfriend's favorite sandwich, and possibly his favorite thing to eat ever, so I had to make it good. It was basically just finding reduced fat ingredients to pull this one together. I used a fat free Thousand Island dressing, a lean corned beef, and light swiss cheese. Stop and Shop also had their own light seedless rye bread which came out to only 3 Points+ for 2 pieces (and only 60 calories each)! Sauerkraut has 0 Points+...figures.
I used Boar's Head Deli USDA Choice Top Round Corned Beef. This is a leaner option than the Boar's Head 1st Cut Corned Beef with less than half the fat. It came in at only 2.5 grams of fat and 80 calories for 2 oz.
If you can make a grilled cheese, you can make this sandwich. It's super easy. This sandwich is pretty big, and very filling. And my boyfriend loved it (yay!) I made these for dinner and one of these was enough for me, with no side dish, except a pickle! I hope you enjoy it!
- Cooking Spray
- 2 slices Light Seedless Rye Bread
- 1 tbsp Fat Free Thousand Island Dressing
- 2 1/2 ounces Boar's Head Cooked USDA Choice Top Round Corned Beef
- 1 slice Finlandia Light Swiss Cheese
- 1/4 cup Sauerkraut
Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Spread 1/2 tbsp of Thousand Island Dressing onto each slice of bread.
Place one slice of bread in the pan. Top with corned beef.
Next, add swiss cheese.
Then top with Sauerkraut. Top with the other slice of bread and heat until the bread is golden brown.
Flip the sandwich over and let the other side brown and the cheese melt.
Remove from pan, slice on a diagonal, serve with a pickle, and enjoy!
