Cheesy Reuben Appetizer (Betty Crocker)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ChefDLH

This is a great hot dip based on a Reuben sandwich. If you are a fan of the sandwich you will adore this appetizer. It is easy to make and smells & tastes wonderful. As it bubbles in the oven the flavor permeates the air. It is easy to make an a welcome addition to a buffet, game day party or any time you need something to serve friends. It is best right out of the oven so transporting is not recommended. Great served with pretzel crackers, if desired ,or serve with Cocktail rye bread slices or both. Enjoy! ChefDLH

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I liked the idea of having this dip with others on my finger food counter, primarily because it is so different from the usual ones I include! And although I actually didn't care for it because of several ingredients (the sauerkraut & corned beef ~ See what personal preference does!) & would probably have rated it lower, others thought it was wonderful, & I'm not about to argue with my guests, even if some of them do have run-away taste buds!
