In this update on the classic, smoked turkey stands in for corned beef, while a fresh slaw and sun-dried tomato mayo take the place of sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.
In a medium bowl, toss the cabbage and pickles with the vinegar and 1/2 tsp. salt. Transfer to a colander, set it in the sink, and let sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pulse the mayonnaise, sun-dried tomatoes, and ketchup in a food processor until the tomatoes are finely chopped.
Squeeze the cabbage mixture to remove any excess liquid and return to the bowl. Toss the cabbage with 2 Tbs. of the mayonnaise.
Spread the remaining mayonnaise on one side of each slice of the bread. Assemble the sandwiches, layering the turkey, cabbage, and cheese over 4 slices of the bread and topping with the other 4 slices. Spread the outsides of the sandwiches with the butter.
Heat a large grill pan, skillet, or stovetop griddle over medium-low heat. Working in batches if necessary, put the sandwiches in the pan, top with a grill press or heavy skillet to weigh them down, and cook until browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until browned and the cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes more. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.
Make it a soup and sandwich night. Serve with Butternut Squash Soup with Apple & Bacon.
Awesome sandwich! Even the hubs liked it. He won't even try a regular reuben due to the sauerkraut. I liked the slaw mix combined with the sun-dried tomato/mayo. I used light mayo, but otherwise stayed with the written recipe.
Excellent! Used marble rye bread and chopped tomatoes as suggested. Both worked out great. I used bread and butter pickles since they were on hand. They were great, but will try dill next time. Also used Whole Foods organic ketchup, which is a little zestier than most.
