Rachel Sandwich

  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 8 slices swiss cheese
  • 1 cup creamy coleslaw
  • 1 lb. sliced turkey (or more depending on appetite)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Mix the mayonnaise, grated onion, ketchup, sweet pickle relish, paprika and salt together.
  2. Place a piece of Swiss cheese on each slice of bread.  Divide the coleslaw evenly while spooning on top of the cheese on half of the slices.  Layer the turkey on the other half of the slices. Divide the thousand island dressing evenly while spreading over the turkey.  Sandwich the slices together by combing one turkey slice with one coleslaw slice.
  3. Spread the butter over the top of each sandwich. Place the sandwich butter side down in a hot pan over medium low heat.  Now spread butter over the side facing up.  Cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil.  Cook until the bottom is golden brown then flip.  Cover and cook until the other side is golden brown.  Cook until the sandwich is heated through and the cheese is melted.
