I promised this recipe weeks ago, didn’t I? Whoops! I had completely forgotten about it until I started going through pictures. I hope you’ll forgive me!

So rueben dip? How weird, right? It’s exactly like the sandwich (and I know you love the sandwich) but in dip form. Seriously, corned beef, sauerkraut, thousand island, Swiss cheese! Does it get any better?

I have to tell you that this dip is not pretty. I was pretty appalled when a friend walked into my kitchen as I was mixing up this bright orange mess and tearing up corned beef to throw in! It was so worth my embarrassment though – I had it for breakfast the next morning! Oh yes, that good.

I served it with those little toast rounds and some pretzel crisps, both were delicious but the toast rounds were perfect with it!

Rueben Dip


8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1½ cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
4 ounces deli sliced corned beef, chopped
½ cup Thousand Island dressing
½ cup drained sauerkraut


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the cream cheese, 1 cup of the Swiss cheese, the dressing and corned beef. Spread in a pie plate or other shallow serving dish. Top with the sauerkraut and the remaining ½ cup of Swiss cheese.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until bubbly around the edges. Serve hot.
