HG's Turkey Reuben Sandwich

(Entire recipe: 250 calories, 6g fat, 1,455mg sodium, 32.5g carbs, 5g fiber, 5.5g sugars, 18g protein = 5 Points) Who needs corned beef anyway?!

2 slices light (reduced calorie) rye bread (like the ones by Beefsteak and Oroweat)
4 slices thinly sliced lean deli turkey (such as the ones by Healthy Choice, Oscar Mayer and Butterball)
4 tbsp. well-drained sauerkraut
1 slice Galaxy Foods Veggie Slices, Swiss Flavor (or another low-cal, low-fat Swiss cheese product*)
4 tsp. fat-free Thousand Island dressing
20 sprays I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray

Directions: Evenly spritz butter spray on 1 side of each slice of bread, using 10 sprays per slice. Spread non-buttered sides evenly with the dressing. Place one slice, buttered side down, in a small cold skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. On top of that slice place sauerkraut, cheese slice, turkey and finally the remaining slice of bread (buttered side facing up). Cook in skillet over medium-low heat and grill the sandwich slowly, pressing down on it a couple times with a spatula. Grill until the bread is browned and crisp; then flip the sandwich over. Grill other side until golden brown. Serve immediately.

Ah- I must be doing better if I can talk about food! I ALWAYS ordered turkey reubens when I'd go to diners! With extra thousand island dressing, of course!

Gotta try this! I started Weight Watchers five weeks ago and I'm trying to eat better. I love the nutritional values of this one plus it sounds wonderful!
