In the Kitchen: Lightened Turkey Reuben

I wanted to share this super yummy, lightened version of a reuben.  I have had this recipe from Cooking Light bookmarked for a long time and last night we went to get all the missing ingredients.  I couldn't wait to have this for lunch today!

2 slices rye bread
1 tablespoon thousand island dressing
2 tablespoons of sauerkraut, drained
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 slice swiss cheese
2 slices smoked turkey, I used Sara Lee brand
PAM cooking spray

Spread Dijon mustard on 2 slices of rye bread.  Spoon sauerkraut on one slice of bread and drizzle with thousand island dressing.  Top with slice of cheese and arrange turkey slices on the cheese; top off with the other slice of bread.  Spray PAM in a medium pan and set on medium heat.  Place the sandwich in the pan until the bread is toasted and the contents are warmed through.  You can also use a sandwich press or George Foreman to "cook" the sandwich.  I served mine alongside about 1 ounce Cape Cod salt and vinegar 40% fat free chips.
