This receipe was really good, and quick, it tasted just like a Rueben Sandwich, so if you like Rueben Sandwiches, you must try this one. First, I would like to agree with the other reviewers that this recipe is EXPENSIVE. I paid $10.15 just for the corned beef. Total cost of meal was approximately $30.00. I initially purchased a corned beef brisket and begin cooking it until I read the recipe and it called for corned beef deli meat. And just a side note, the corned beef brisket takes FOREVER to cook, and I don’t think it would work as well as the deli meat. I listened to the other reviewer’s suggestions about the soggy bread, and decided to make a few changes. I spread the bread with butter and toasted in the oven, which made it extremely hard. I also layered the casserole in the following matter: The toasted rye, corned beef, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, Swiss cheese, and repeated the layering, and placed crumbled rye/pumpernickel bread on top of the casserole, sprinkle with no-salt butter. I also used canned sauerkraut. I drained it really good, and even squeezed the sauerkraut by hand to squeeze the access water outof it. When I baked the casserole, the bread remained crispy throughout the entire casserole. The only change I would make is to spray the bread with oil spray and not use actual butter, because the casserole was kind of greasy.
