We still have a few turkey leftover recipes to feature; one of them is Turkey Reuben Sandwich. We all know that the original Reuben sandwich is made from corned beef, this variation that we have here uses leftover turkey.
Preparing Turkey Reuben Sandwich is simple. You will need to add moisture to the turkey slices though by soaking it in warm chicken stock before assembling the sandwich. I used commercial Thousand Island dressing and bottled Sauerkraut for this recipe because I intended this to be quick and easy for everyone to follow.
This can be eaten for breakfast similar to breakfast reuben sandwich, or you can bring it with you at work or in school for a nice hearty lunch.
