Skinny Grilled Reuben Sandwich

This is my all-time favorite sandwich!!! It’s traditionally made with corned beef or pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Thousand Island or Russian dressing and rye bread all grilled in butter.  I know you’re thinking, if you’re trying to trim down this sandwich would certainly be off limits, right?  Well, guess again.  This skinny Reuben has all the delicious taste sensations of its high-fat counterpart but with a fraction of the fat and calories and still amazingly good!  Most Reuben sandwiches, like the one at Bennigans, has an astounding 970 calories and 37 grams of fat.  My skinny Reuben has 373 calories, 12 grams of fat and 10 Weight Watchers SmartPoints. So hearty, just a half sandwich would certainly be satisfying. This will likely be your most requested sandwich. It is at my house!
