I have given this 4 stars as opposed to 5 because I tweaked many things thus changing the recipe. First, I was careful to rinse the sauerkraut quite heavily and squeeze it dry. I think this got rid of the strong flavor. Maybe this was an error though, as my husband thought this made it a "little bland". Next time a quick rinse would be better. I also added quite a bit of Thousand Island dressing to carry on the Reuben taste. This added extra flavor and made it creamier after cooking. I also changed the crumb topping to a rye bread option. I cubed 6 pieces of rye and tossed in the same amount of butter which made a nice , toasty topping similar to the sandwich. I, too, added caraway seeds like many other reviews suggest. Adding a pinch of brown sugar is another option to tame the bite of sauerkraut. This was a good recipe but with the creamy dressing, creamed soups, cheese, and egg noodles this may not be a good selection for those counting calories!
