Grilled Reuben Sandwich with Polish Kielbasa

Ready in 1h

A new take on the standard Reuben.


13.5 ounces Polish Kielbasa; (fully cooked)
2 tablespoons Butter
4 slices Rye bread
4 tablespoons Thousand island dressing
1/2 cup Sauerkraut; (well drained)
4 slices Swiss Cheese

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Butter each slice of bread on one side only

Build the sandwich in a 10 to 12 inch skillet

Place 2 slices, butter side down in the skillet. Top each slice with 1 tablespoon of the dressing

Then top each of the two slices with 1/4 cup of sauerkraut (more if desired). Spread it out evenly to cover the dressing.

Place 2 slices of Swiss cheese on top of the sauerkraut.

Cut sausage link in two pieces and slice lengthwise.

On a small microwaveable plate, heat the 4 pieces of sausage for about 30 seconds, just to warm slightly. Or in a separate small skillet, over medium heat, pan fry the sausage to warm through.

Place 2 sausage pieces on top of the cheese in each sandwich. Spread another tablespoon of dressing on the dry side of the last two slices of bread and place it dressing side down and butter side up, over the sausages.

Place the skillet over medium-low heat and grill the sandwich slowly. Grill until the bread is toasted and crisp and the cheese is starting to melt. Press down gently on the sandwich.

Carefully turn the sandwich over to grill the other side. Grill until the sandwich is nicely toasted on both sides and the cheese is melted. Remove from pan and serve immediately.

Note: A panini press can be used in place of the skillet!
