These are very good. My step-mom used to make these in the 80's. We would dip into a mustard dressing. Honey mustard would work. The thousand island works great also. Make sure you finely chop corned beef and sauerkraut, so the croquettes hold together. They make a nice appetizer or a nice luncheon with a salad. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

We enjoy Reuben's and I had most of the ingredients for this on hand, so tried this last night. Did substitute a half pound of deli corned beef. I put it in the food processor with the drained sauerkraut and cheese and chopped it up. Stirred in the remainding ingredients. I didn't do the double coating, just dipped in panko bread crumbs (what I had). I did pan fry and then served with horseradish mustard. Kids and husband really enjoyed.
