Skip the corned beef and try these grilled turkey burgers that are topped with homemade sauerkraut and swiss cheese for a twist on the traditional reuben sandwich.This is a little bit of burger meets one of my unhealthy favorites – reuben sandwich. Fortunately, I enjoy the sauerkraut more than anything else in a reuben sandwich so I decided to ditch the processed meat and replace it with a seasoned organic turkey burger. It’s the perfect companion for the sauerkraut, swiss cheese and a dollop of mustard.
Ground turkey is a much healthier option than corned beef. It’s lower in fat, salt and does not contain nitrates. Top these burgers off with a splash of Dijon mustard and grilled rye bread. This will satisfy any craving for a reuben sandwich in a healthy kind of way!
