The grill gives this old favorite a wonderful full flavor.

Serves: 5
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Smithfield Product: Dinner Sausage


  • 1 package Smoked Sausage Links
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 10 slices rye bread
  • 10 slices swiss cheese
  • 1/2 pound sauerkraut, excess moisture removed
  • 1/4 cup prepared Thousand Island dressing


Heat grill to medium heat. Slice smoked sausage links  in half length-wise and place on the grill for 4 minutes. Remove from grill and chop.

Butter one side of 5 slices of bread and place buttered-side down on a sheet tray on the grill. Top each slice of bread with a slice of Swiss cheese. Divide the chopped smoked sausage among the 5 slices of bread. Top each sandwich with sauerkraut and dressing. Top with another slice of Swiss cheese. Butter one side of the remaining 5 slices of bread and place a slice on each sandwich, butter-side up.

Cook the sandwiches on one side until the bread is golden brown. Using a spatula, flip the sandwiches over and cook on the second side until golden brown. Remove from grill and cut sandwiches in half before serving.
