Turkey Rueben Panini

I love panini’s, they are the grown up version of a grilled cheese sandwich, and I love a good grilled cheese sandwich. Rueben’s are my favorite sandwiches though. My Irish blood makes me a sucker for the corned beef and sauerkraut. When I get a craving for them it’s hard to break it. The Rueben is a bold sandwich and there are no others like it. I have the hardest time finding corned beef where I shop sometimes so I decided to try my luck with some turkey in it’s place.

It came out just as tasty as the regular rueben and I can find the ingredients needed on short notice. The marbled rye is one of my favorite aspects of this sandwich. It’s simply a beautiful addition to any sandwich. Turkey Rueben PaniniHere is what I used for my lovely lunch.
