"This is a party favorite. Everyone fights over the pan as soon as it comes out of the oven! Serve it with wheat crackers or small pieces of rye bread." — CRUZCHIX

Thousand Island dressing
sauerkraut, rinsed and squeezed dry
shredded corned beef
shredded Swiss cheese
I have used this recipe before and I put all the
ingredients together and then let cook in my crock pot for 4 hours. Then I serve it in my mini
crock pot in order to keep it warm.
This dip tastes just like a Reuben sandwich, but unless you keep it hot, the cheese congeals into a gluey, impossible-to-scoop-up mess. Make sure to serve this in a hot chafing dish or keep the baking dish on an electric hot tray.
I used 8oz cream cheese instead of mayo. I made in a crockpot on low and served with party rye bread and triscuits. It was a HUGE hit at work and at a school function!
What a hit! I made this for the adults at my son's birthday party, and figured a few people would enjoy it. What an understatement. When it came out of the oven, I couldn't get anyone away from this dish! They all hovered over it until every last bite had been consumed. I toasted rye bread and cut them into quarters for dipping. I also used a combination of swiss and mozzarella cheese for the topping, as I knew not everyone was crazy about swiss cheese. It was fantastic and I know it will be a requested dish in the future.
My mom has been making this for years, so I took pieces of her version and added it to this one. I skipped the Thousand Island dressing and used 2 cups of mayo with 1 can of drained and rinsed sauerkraut, a pound of shredded corned beef, one pound of shredded Swiss, 8 oz. shredded cheddar and 8 oz. of mozzarella. I mixed it altogether and baked it in a greased 9x13 for 1/2 hour and it was out of this world. I served it with Triscuits and cocktail rye, which my guests really enjoyed.
Wow, I've never had so many people beg me for more! It's definitely worth it to cook up a brisket - quality corned beef makes for quality dip. I spread a small amount of Jack Daniels dijon mustard over the corned beef before putting on the top layer to add a little zest. For a party, I make it in several small casserole dishes so while people are enjoying the first batch, another one can be warming up in the oven. Thank you Karen!
Grandpa and I liked this. I made a sample batch using canned corned beef. I can see that you would have to chop and drain the good quality bag or jar kraut you find in the deli or dairy case, in a strainer overnight and also use good deli corned beef shredded for best results.
The dressing/cheese topping is what makes it really yummy so don't skimp, but don't overdo either. I would use REAL mayonnaise and good name brand Thousand Island. NO nonfat stuff, that is what gives it flavor!
I'm not a Reuben lover, so I didn't even get a chance to taste this, however, my Reuben lovin' guests gave this five stars. I ran my kraut thru the food processor to help make it easier to eat and served on party pumpernickel. A nice change from the run of the mill appetizer. Thanks Karen!
