We like it with rye bread, whole-grain crackers, lightly toasted pumpernickel bread, celery sticks, or cucumber slices—but you can enjoy it with whatever you want! You’ll love getting the flavor of a Reuben sandwich in each bite!
Corned beef – use deli corned beef; in a pinch, canned corned beef will also work.
Sauerkraut – make your own or use canned sauerkraut.
Thousand Island dressing – use store-bought dressing or make your own.
Cheese – Swiss cheese adds flavor and gives a nice cheese pull.
This recipe couldn’t be easier. Mix together the ingredients and bake until bubbly! As easy as that!
