Hot Reuben Dip

Reuben Dip

I’ve never been a big fan of the Reuben sandwich and I really don’t know why. I love all the ingredients but for some reason when I’ve seen it on the menu, I shy away. I saw this recipe that turns the sandwich into a dip and I decided to try it. What I found was that all the ingredients complemented each other without overpowering one another. I’m so glad I tried this dip, I don’t think I’ll shy away from a Reuben sandwich ever again.


Hot Reuben Dip:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 ounces (about 4 slices) deli sliced corned beef, chopped
  • ½ cup Thousand Island dressing
  • ½ cup drained sauerkraut
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  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 with cocktail-size rye bread squares.

  1. My grandpa had me try a bite of his Reuben sandwich when I was only 11, and I definitely didn’t like the flavor back then! I think the Swiss cheese overpowered everything else, which was really noticeable to me since it’s one of my least favorite cheeses. But I’m guessing when coupled with cream cheese in your recipe, the Swiss flavors get muted. Still, it looks like a really tasty dip!!

  2. I’ve never eaten a Reuben (sandwich, dip or… uh, person, thank goodness!) but I keep hearing how awesome the combination is. This hot cheesy dip bowl makes me even more keen to try one! Love your blog Gina Marie. It’s so lovely, in every way! xx
