Turkey Reuben Recipe

The original reuben sandwich in the United States has been around for years, and years. That being said, there's a reason this sandwich has been around for so long, it is a great sandwich.  If you don’t know what a reuben is it consist of rye bread with corn beef, russian dressing, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut grilled just like you would a grilled cheese.

Now, there are people out there that aren’t too keen on corn beef or sauerkraut, and I feel these people because I happen to be in the same boat. That is why I began to start taking a different direction, and started to enjoy the turkey reuben instead.

This sandwich lives up to the name of the reuben is in my eyes is an even better sandwich. For the people who aren’t that crazy about Reubens or happen to love them you need to try this sandwich.

Here is what you’ll need.

  • Fresh Rye Bread
  • Butter or Margarine
  • Russian Dressing
  • Cole slaw
  • Swiss cheese
  • A Few Slices of your Favorite Turkey

To make the sandwich all you have to do is get a flat top, or frying pan. Spread butter on each side of the rye bread, and set them on a hot flat top, or frying. Once on assemble the sandwich in any order you’d like (it’s all going in the same sandwich), but I prefer to put my cheese down first, this makes it melt. Once all ingredients are added, flip the two pieces of bread together and continue to fry the bread to your preferred crispness.

The Worse Person I Ever Served

Now, you may have no idea who I am, but I assure you I have had my bad experiences while working in the food industry.  I started working at the age of 12 at a high class Italian restaurant where I basically had to do every spot that was given at the restaurant.  This meant from time to time if the waiters were busy I would have to cook the food, and serve it as well along with cleaning the table once the customers were finished eating.  On an extremely busy night I did not know what was coming my way, as a woman came in by herself, and sat at a table.

She placed an order with a waiter, and he sent me over the slip. This is what the woman order (not kidding at all). She wanted a whole pizza, one half white, other half red, but she wanted one side well done, and the side extra doughy.  Now, you may be asking yourself what the hell is he talking about? Exactly. This is what I had to put up with, and I had no idea how I was going to cook one pizza two different ways. This is like going to a restaurant, and ordering a steak, but wanted one half well done, and one half rare.

Either way I did the order, and just so happen to be the person who had to serve it to her.  I walked up to her table with the pizza, and said “Hello, how are you tonight? She replied “ Terrible, I’ve been waiting 15 minutes for my food to come out” I apologized, and explained how busy it was tonight, even though 15 minutes isn’t that long to wait for a pizza. She continued to say this “ It isn’t your fault the cook is bad at his job”. I didn’t want to explain to her that I was the one who cooked it seeing how moody she already was. I placed the pizza on her table, and told her to enjoy! I walked back to the kitchen, and continued to finish orders.

Literally a minute later my boss told me to go back out to the table that I just served. I dropped what I was doing, and went back out to the table.  I see the woman sitting there seeming to be very upset with her order. She explained t me that the side she wanted well done was to well done, and the side she wanted extra doughy was too doughy.  I asked her if she would like me to send her out another one. For some reason she did not, but she did give me an ear full about how the chef at this place should keep his day job, because his pizza making skills are terrible.  This was the first complaint I have ever gotten about making pizzas, and still to this day people tell me I make the best pizza they have ever tasted (not to sound arrogant).  To be honest I felt she was speaking this way because she didn’t know I cooked it, and probably was looking for a free meal.

The woman finally left, and my boss asked to clean up the table she was sitting at. I went over to a messy table , and to my surprise she left a huge tip. I was so shocked.confused to why she would leave such a big tip seeing how she had negative feelings about her meal. Now, keep in mind that I cooked her food, and served her food to her, and was now cleaning up her mess. Next to the tip laid a note which read, and I’m not kidding “This tip is left behind not because of the food, but because the boy waiting on me had a gap in his teeth, and it’s hard to look at. Hopefully this money will be a start for him to get his teeth repaired.” Ouch...keep in mind i was also 13 at the time, and either way who has the audacity to do that?

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Panini

What if I told you a classic bar dish could be turned into an elegant sandwich, that any person would pay a couple extra bucks to get. No matter where you go in the world people love buffalo wings with either ranch dressing, or blue cheese dressing. What i have done here is made recipe that will make the mess of getting all of that hot sauce on your hands a thing of the past. Paninis are becoming a huge craze in the culinary world now a days, so what I decided to do is take a classic delicious dish, and infuse it into modern times. This sandwich is simple, and you’ll only need a few thing to make this happen.

-Cooked Chicken that has been marinated in your favorite hot sauce

-Bleu Cheese or Ranch dressing(whichever you prefer)

-A slice of American cheese

-Panini Bread

-Panini Press


It is literally that simple to make this sandwich, but believe me even the simplest things can bring a huge impact. This panini will pack a spicy punch that will have you going from bite to bite. All you need to do is put your ingredients onto the panini bread, then press until you have hit your desired crispness.

Slow Food

I was about 14, and I was working in a high class Italian restaurant. It was a Friday night, and people always crowded the restaurant and called in delivery orders left, and right. We would be doing up to 100 pizzas per hour, along with serving classic dishes such as chicken parmesan, and spaghetti and meatballs. We had to rely on some new delivery driver we just hired that week to take hundreds of orders that had been called in for delivery. I wasn’t too crazy about this guy straight from the geico, I know it was his first week, but we got complaints from people saying the food that was delivered to them had slices of pizza missing from their order. Which is hands down the dumbest thing you think you can sneak a bite out of. Pizza are basically puzzles you're going to know if they aren’t complete. Either way we needed this new delivery driver to make sure these orders got out, and got out fast. It was one of the busiest times of the night, and we had over 50 orders to send on one run. We gave this goofy ball all these orders, and he left. An hour later we began getting calls that peoples orders weren’t being delivered, which was weird because our delivery driver left an hour ago. I went to check the back parking lot, and I found his car crashed into a pole close to the restaurant. i found him unconscious in car(he was okay), and when he finally came through he told me he was going over the orders for a while in the back. When he finally decided to take the orders he reached in someones order, grab a slice of pizza, but when he went to take a bite it was too hot, and he ended up crashing his car. The rest of the orders made it out that night, but at a very slow pace seeing how my boss had to delivery them. Oh also the delivery driver got fired, if you didn’t already know.
