A meat-free – but not flavor free – alternative to this classic sandwich.


  • 1 pound smoked Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup thousand island salad dressing, or to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar sauerkraut, drained
  • 12 slices dark rye bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced


In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cheese and sauerkraut. Add enough dressing to coat, and mix thoroughly.

Butter each slice of bread on one side. Spread a thick layer of the cheese mixture onto unbuttered side of half of the bread slices. Top with sliced tomato and another slice of bread.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Fry sandwiches on both sides until the outside is toasted and the cheese is melted.
