    Hi! I made these tonight and it really hit the spot!

    I used the egg bread someone has posted in the "egg recipe thread".. if you haven't tried this, it's totally worth it. It's not ULTRA DELICIOUS, but hey.. anything that resembles bread is GOLD to me right about now! I've been eating it like crazy.. (French Toast, sandwiches, .. you name it, I've made it with that stuff.. it's wonderful as far as I'm concerned..)

    Ok, anyhow..
    I take 2 slices of the egg bread to start.
    2 slices of Turkey Deli meat (you could probably use something else, but this is what I had on hand.. and it's low in fat and cals and tastes just as good).
    1/4 to 1/2 cup sauerkraut.
    1 slice ff cheese (optional - up to you if you want to add the cals/fat/carbs or not - it tastes great either way.)
    1-2 tbsp Walden Farm's Thousand Island Dressing (0 carbs, 0 fat, 0 cal)

    Anyhow, I just take the meat and sauerkraut and fry them up in a pan till they are a little brown then remove or move over depending on how large your pan is. (I don't use any cooking spray because the moisture from the sauerkraut and meat tend to do the trick)

    Take your bread, and you can either brown them up like you would a grilled cheese (you can use Pam cooking spray if you need to) and layer your 2 tbsp Thousand Island Dressing on the inside of 1 slice.. add the sauerkraut/meat and cheese over top of that and cover with the other slice.. Flip and wait until cheese melts a bit and remove. Something else that I found that gave it a nice flavor is .. I used a few spritz's of the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" pray on both sides of the sandwich. OR you could just put everything together and stick it in the broiler for a few seconds. I've tried it both ways and they work just as good as eachother.

    I think the sauerkraut said there was 1 carb per 1/4 cup serving.. I'm not sure about the egg bread, but I think there isn't much at all. It's basically made out of egg whites, a few yolk, and a few tbsp ff sour cream per batch. The meat has no carbs - 50 calories per 2 slices. And the Thousand Island Dressing is 0 carbs if you don't go overboard. 2 tbsp's is about all you'd need, it really does the trick.

    Hope you enjoy!

    ** Update. I just wanted to add that I was able to make the egg bread today with 9 egg whites (which is 3 more than the recipe calls for) and cut the 4 yolks down to just 2. I also cut down the sour cream to 2 tbsp's (instead of 4) and used the fat free kind. It turned out wonderful! Lots of bread. =0)
