  1. Warm veggie burgers according to package directions, then set aside.
  2. Brush just one side of bread slices with olive oil. Spread Thousand Island or Russian dressing on the non-oiled side.
  3. Start building sandwiches: On half of the bread slices (dressing side up), place a slice of Swiss cheese, then a veggie burger, a scoop of sauerkraut (drained), and finish with a second slice of Swiss cheese. Press another slice of bread on top of that, dressing side down.
  4. Griddle sandwiches over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes per side, or until toasted and warmed through. (Use a nonstick pan, cast iron pan, or panini press.)
  5. Serve with your favorite chips. Optional: Serve with a green side salad to round out this meal.
