Easy Baked Reuben Dip


Reuben sandwiches are a newly found addiction of mine. Thinly sliced corned beef or smoked meat, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and mustard or thousand island. All on marble rye bread….YUM!

While I love reubens, they aren’t something that I make at home very often. I’m not sure why…maybe it is all the different ingredients for a sandwich that Evan would never eat. Who knows. When I ran across a recipe for reuben dip, I thought “Yes! I want to make this RIGHT NOW!”. Next thing you know, I had the ingredients in the grocery cart. Our next trip to the cottage presented the perfect opportunity to try it out on guinea pigs…er friends. I can’t say that it was a slam dunk hit with everyone. However, the reuben loves in the crowd really liked it. I think you could easily use grainy mustard instead of the Thousand Island dressing but, as a Southerner, I have an affinity for Thousand Island.

Make sure to heat this dip up right before you serve it because it is best piping hot. I have seen other recipes where the ingredients are mixed together and then heated instead of layers. I think this recipe would work great that way too. I layered it because it was easy (and after attending a wine and cheese that afternoon….I needed easy).

This intrigues me. Sauerkraut good. Corned beef good. Swiss cheese good. Thousand Islands? Well, I'll let you keep that one ;)

But Voula, Thousand Island dressing is traditionally on a Reuben. I didn't make it up...promise!
