Georgia Reuben Sandwich

I love leftovers but after a few days of the same thing I definitely try to reinvent the wheel. Recently I was inspired by the classic Reuben sandwich which is piled high with corned beef or pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing, and served on rye bread. Since I don’t care for corned beef or sauerkraut, I thought I was being original by switching out coleslaw for sauerkraut so it wasn’t so bitter, adding turkey  instead of corned beef and truth be told I used thousand island dressing because that’s all I had. Turns out, this sandwich is actually quite popular in Michigan and is called the Georgia Reuben. But I can’t complain with the name of the sandwich, it is quite perfect for me since I am a Georgia peach. This sandwich is stuffed with roasted turkey, swiss cheese, coleslaw, and thousand island dressing on sourdough bread and grilled to perfection!


For another twist try BBQ sauce instead of thousand island dressing and turn it into a Southern Reuben. Both sandwiches are right up my alley!
