Reuben and Swiss Casserole Bake

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

I think this is even better than a reuben sandwich, I bet you will probably eat the whole casserole by yourself! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12-1 lb corned beef, cooked and chopped
  • 14 cup thousand island dressing (Kraft is best)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can sauerkraut, drained and rinsed with cold water
  • 12 lb swiss cheese, shredded
  • 6 slices rye bread, crumbled into very small pieces
  • 14 cup butter, melted


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Butter a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish.
  3. Place the corned beef in the bottom on the casserole dish then dot all over with the dressing.
  4. Spread the sauerkraut over the top of the dressing then top with the grated Swiss cheese.
  5. Toss the breadcrumbs with the butter in a bowl then sprinkle evenly over the the cheese.
  6. Bake for 25-30 mins, or until bubbly.
  7. NOTE; if desired the rye bread topping can be doubled.

Pretty good casserole! A very easy way to make Ruebens quickly for the whole family! I loved the idea of this, but I found that the sauerkraut made it very watery even though I drained it before adding. I guess you really need to squeeze as much liquid out of it as possible! Also, I couldn't taste the Thousand Island dressing in it, so I guess that could be increased as well. I'll definitely be trying this again with said changes.

I love reuben sandwiches, and this just did not do it for DH or myself. I would not make it again. I would make the sandwhiches instead. sorry.
