While at work a few days ago, something reminded me of the movie "Inglourious Basterds". I love that movie! There's a scene where Brad Pitt's character is trying to get information out of someone and tries to threaten/persuade him with the line: "If you ever want to eat another sauerkraut sandwich again". I have quite a bit of German ancestry and Sauerkraut has always been one of my favorite things to eat. I have not; however, had a Sauerkraut Sandwich (aka Reuben Sandwich) before. The traditional Reuben Sandwich is made up of Rye bread, corned beef or pastrami, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and Russian or Thousand Island dressing. I decided to change it up a bit to suit my taste.
- 1 Sub Roll
- 4-6 thin slices of smoked turkey
- BBQ sauce
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Sauerkraut (I would have liked homemade but I used 1 can instead-there will be a bit leftover)
Heat sauerkraut in a small skillet on medium-low heat until warm/hot. In the meantime broil toast on Hi until slightly crisp. Spread desired amount of BBQ sauce on each bread slice. Add mozzarella cheese to one side and turkey slices to the other side. Place back in the oven to heat on Lo until cheese has melted. Add cooked saurkraut and enjoy! I served mine with a sliced pickle. Yum :)
