"I just love the Reuben sandwich so I wanted to create a casserole version. It turned out delicious! My son came home from football practice and brought a friend who dove into it as soon as he saw it. Yum! I served it with some steamed green beans and coleslaw mixed with thousand island dressing and toasted, buttered rye bread."

I made this dish last night and I love it! It's def. a fun twist on the traditional upside down reuben sandwiches I would make in the oven. I love it. Having the noodles in this dish makes it a meal in one! Thanks for sharing!
I actually have a recipe very much like this that I found in one of my mom's cookbooks. (From the 80's) with one major exception - no panko. Love your version! I'm a vegetarian, so I leave out the meat. My friends love it, and one of them dislikes sauerkraut.
I doubled the amount of corned beef and cut back on the egg noodles just a touch to compensate. I also added more butter to the crumb topping because when I added the three tablespoons of butter, it seemed like it wasn't enough. This was actually quite good, the whole family liked it which surprized me. We all agreed that this recipe is a repeater.
I really liked this recipe. My family enjoyed it, including my picky two year old. The only thing I will do differently next time is make my rue with a little less milk and a little more sauerkraut juice to give it a little more pop. I also might add about a half of a cup more sauerkraut, just because there wasn't enough of the flavor throughout. Overall great recipe though!
I liked the recipe but will add double the corned beef next time.
This dish was rich and a bit heavy. It was certainly cheesy. Next time, I might cut back on the sauerkraut and mustard since those ingredients gave the dish a good zing, and increase the corned beef and rye since I felt those signature Reuben flavors were a bit lost. Oh, and we left out the salt and didn't miss it.
Came together nicely but next time I would use a rectangular baking dish and not a 2 QT bowl. The cheese mixture sank to bottom 1/2 of bowl so that 1/2 was better than the top 1/2. Taste was good and crunchy top was good. I like a thicker rue so maybe that change next time and I think more corned beef.
I served this with Thousand Island dressing to drizzle on top. Really good.
