Bread-less Turkey Reuben

Ever have a meal that you are just DYING to re-create, so you can eat it whenever you want?  For me, that occurred last weekend while at a nearby cafe. I had the Rachael Sandwich and it was outstanding!  I just needed to eat this a million more times.

What you may not know about me is that I’m allergic to yeast. Which means that bread is not exactly great for me. I break out in hives and itch like crazy for 24-48 hours after eating yeast. *sigh*

I could have recreated this sandwich as a wrap or quesadilla, but I decided I could do it better and make it easier to meal prep. So, I set off to turn it into a bread-less meal. This turned out better than I even hoped.  If you like reubens or rachels (turkey reuben), give this a try!
