Was there a specific reason that you chose to use ground turkey instead of sliced?
Generally Rubens are made with Sliced turkey, that is grilled, and some cheese with thousand island..
At least thats how i made em' when i was a cook. lol
Just curious, no bashin' to ur recepie
hmm.. i thought they turkey version of the Ruben was called a Rachel... and the Corned beef was a true ruben... dammit, now im curious... either way, ill add urs to the "to eat list "!!

I had ground turkey in the fridge. Supposedly it is also more easily digested. Its also cheap and easy to cook. Makes the whole thing low in fat, low gi, and really high in protien. I also like to make chili burgers with turkey chili and ground turkey patties in a pita. Really excellent.

A Ruben is usually made with Montreal corned beef , sauerkraut,( Fancy mustard,russian dressing or thousand island,i prefer the mustard) and swiss cheese, usually on rye or pumpernickel bread.
The Rachel sandwich is a variation of the Reuben sandwich that substitutes pastrami for the corned beef and coleslaw for the sauerkraut.
Both are good I gotta try the turkey now though:
