  1. What a rich and tasty sandwich. If it's low fat it's even better ^_^ Bye, have a great day

  2. What a mouthwatering snack!Kisses from Greece,dear!

  3. In seeing this, I am wondering how healthy and happy someone would be if they only ate and prepared your recipes for a month. Also, how much what their counts would change in in regards to cholesterol and blood pressure. I am sure these posts are benefiting people way more than you realize Claudia.
    Your sandwich here is a delicious classic and kudos to you for cutting the fat. I am sure it was not missed at all. Enjoy the day.

  4. Yum! I love any sandwich that has contents oozing out of it.

  5. Proof that low-fat can be delicious!

  6. Please can I come to yours for lunch?!
    You are right, we often cook similar dishes. Surely is our Italian heritage in the genes :-)

  7. Oh, I used to order Reubens ALL the time...but stopped knowing how high in fat they were! This sounds like a wonderful way to get all the same marvelous flavor without all the guilt! Wonderful idea, Claudia!

  8. I love your lightened up reuben sandwich...I would not call it "mock"
    reuben, because the turkey is the only substitution, other then the less fat cheese, but the combination of the flavors sure will make it taste like the real thing!
    I am craving it right now, wish I had the ingredients to make it!

    Thank you for your kind words on my blog!

  9. Dear Claudia, Great twist on an old classic. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  10. Great healthy take on the classic Rueben. All the flavor minus the fat. Never thought to do them in the pininni maker. Good idea.

  11. You know, I am not a fan of corned beef so I think I would like this much better than the original.

  12. That is one gorgeous sandwich, bursting with flavor. It sure doesn't look low fat!
