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!
- 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
- 1 ½ cups 6 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
- 4 ounces deli sliced corned beef (chopped)
- ½ cup Thousand Island dressing
- ½ cup drained sauerkraut
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- 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.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, or until bubbly around the edges. Serve hot.

This is such a good idea! Now I need to make a reason to make dip, party time?
wow! can it be any better?!?!
This sounds like a killer dip!

This looks so good! Reubens are one of my favorite sandwiches. I bet this would be good served on those miniature rye bread slices too!

I’m so glad you loved this dip! I am not even a fan of sauerkraut, but when I had this for the first time at a friend’s party, I couldn’t stop eating it, so addicting!

Wow what a great appetizer for a party. I bookmarked it to make later.

Mmm Reuben for breakfast. Mmmmm
Anything made with sauerkraut is good with me! It’s the most under-appreciated condiment on the planet.
