Recipe: Smoked Turkey Reuben with Green Apple

Make it a sandwich night with class with this 30-minute recipe from "Ladies Home Journal:"

Yield: 4 sandwiches

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot

2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

8 slices pumpernickel bread

1 Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced

1/2 pound sliced smoked turkey

1 cup drained sauerkraut

6 ounces thinly sliced Gruyere or Jarlsberg cheese

Whisk together mayonnaise, ketchup, shallot, relish, and mustard in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spread mayonnaise mixture on one side of each bread slice. Layer apple and turkey slices on half of bread, mayonnaise side up. Top with sauerkraut, cheese, and remaining bread, mayonnaise side down.

Preheat a panini machine until hot and grill sandwiches, in batches, until cheese melts and bread is golden brown.

If you don't have a panini machine, use a George Foreman grill or flatten the sandwich while it cooks by placing a heavy fry pan on top.
