Possibly my favorite sandwich - a Georgia Reuben!

Seriously, how amazingly delicious does this look?!

I first had one of these in a dimly lit restaurant in my college town with a Guinness.  I’ve been in love with this sandwich ever since.  Yum.

I didn’t include amounts in the ingredient list because you can make as many or as few as you want.

Tonight, I made a big ol' stack!

The ingredient list isn’t very specific either.  Choose what kind of turkey, coleslaw – make your own or don’t – and bread…

Speaking of bread, we used a Jewish seeded rye tonight and boy did it have a lot of seeds!

Ozzy sprinkled the seeds all over the counter and we pretended they were bugs! Ew!

Danny got into it and started looking for bugs on GranDan!

Ingredients:

  • rye bread
  • butter
  • sliced turkey
  • coleslaw
  • Thousand Island dressing
  • sliced Swiss cheese

Instructions:

  1. Heat a grill pan over medium heat.
  2. Butter a slice of bread and place butter side down on the grill pan.
  3. Top the bread with turkey, coleslaw, dressing, and cheese.
  4. Place another slice of buttered bread on top.
  5. Cook 5 minutes or so until the bread is nice and golden brown.
  6. Flip and cook until the other slice of bread is golden brown as well.

Here are some ideas to get your “kid cook” involved with this recipe:

  • Have him help butter the bread.
  • Ask him why there are holes in Swiss cheese.  You might be surprised with what he comes up with, but in case you were wondering and don’t know, check out this article on About.com
