This recipe is good, but can be great!!! I have never commented on a recipe before and the changes that I made to it, but this can be made a lot lot better very easily.
First, use half of the cream cheese called for in the recipe. Then, double the meat and the thousand Island dressing. I also used one and a half times the amount of sauerkraut called for, as well as the Swiss cheese. Then I added 1/2 teaspoon of caraway seeds and 1 teaspoon of onion powder.
Now, the key to this recipe: Sometimes when you're mixing a lot of things together you can skimp on the quality of the ingredients because they meld into one flavor. Not so here! It is imperative that you use good corned beef - I recommend using kosher corned beef - and a high-quality Swiss. I used an imported Emmenthal Swiss. You also have to have a good thousand Island dressing. Ken's is a good pre-made dressing or you can make your own, with plenty of relish. I grilled rye bread and cut it into wedges for dipping (scooping).
This recipe is "passable" and a little bland as printed, but it tastes like a real Reuben sandwich if you make the few changes I recommend.
