The Best Low Carb Grilled Reuben Recipe

low carb grilled Reuben with Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz

A Reuben is traditionally a sandwich made with corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and a Russian dressing in between rye bread grilled to perfection. This low carb grilled Reuben has two twists to it, as we use our Large Bunz instead of rye bread to keep it gluten free and of course low carb and make our own incredible dressing!

Make Your Own Dressing for Your Low Carb Grilled Reuben

Russian dressing is creamy, slightly spicy, and an absolute staple a Reuben. To make this dressing combine the following ingredients in a bowl:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (homemade mayo or Primal Kitchens Mayo recommended)
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste or sugar-free ketchup
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. horseradish
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • pinch of cayenne pepper


Mix well and you’re done!

Remember to Flip Your Bunz!

It is super important to flip the sliced bun inside-out to ensure even heat distribution. The top of the bun will be on the inside, and the inside of the bun is in contact with the grill, cook top, or pan.
