Low Calorie Turkey Reuben

This is my take on the Weight Watcher's low fat, low calorie Reuben. My sandwich carries a few less calories because I used Arnold's Bakery Light 100% Whole Wheat bread which is only 40 calories per slice, as opposed to the regular whole wheat bread which usually packs about 120 calories per slice.

But no matter what bread you use this is a super yummy and satisfying sandwich. In this healthier version the Swiss cheese is replaced by non-fat cream cheese, and instead of the corned beef low salt turkey and turkey pastrami are used. (Turkey pastrami also replaced the turkey pepperoni in the Weight Watcher recipe.) Then I plugged in a slice of tomato for color and flavor.

What you will need...

2 slices of whole wheat bread
1 T fat free cream cheese
2 T. sauerkraut rinsed and patted dry with paper towel
2 ounces low salt turkey breast
2 ounces turkey pastrami
slice of fresh tomato
Carrot curl and olive for garnish

What you need to do...

Spread cream cheese on one slice of the bread. Then add your turkeys and sauerkraut plus tomato and place other slice of bread on top.
In either a non-stick skillet or in one of those Foreman Grills, cook sandwich until golden brown and then remove from heat. Skewer the carrot curl and olive with a toothpick, garnish your sandwich and then EAT!!!
For lunch today I paired the sandwich with my homemade tomato basil soup.
I hope you give this one a try...I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Have a great day!

  1. Yum! I make Reubens with smoked turkey instead of pastrami. But I still use swiss cheese and thousand island dressing and toast it using butter (not low calorie, but still delicious)! This looks good, though and I'll have to try it!

  2. Hmmmmmm.... Madison is here looking over my shoulder echoing my thoughts. We would leave out the kraut but would devour the remaining sandwich!
