My family loves Reuben's, so this is a fave munchie around here. It is also good served with crackers if you don't want to do the whole bread thing. Great party food!!

We all love Ruebens, so I am really sorry to say that we did not care for this very much. We had game night at my mom's on Saturday. There were 5 of us. My sister-in-law took this from my recipes I had printed out and brought it. She followed the recipe exactly. Everyone tried it and no one rated it above a 1 star, except me. I felt it was worth 3, so I decided to hit in the middle and give 2. I felt it would've been better warm, since I've never had a cold Rueben sandwich. My mom tried a bit of it heated in the microwave and said it was a little better that way, but she wanted no more. I thank you for the opportunity to try your recipe, but unfortunately it just wasn't for us.

Delicious! I can't believe I'm the first one to give this recipe a rating and that no one has done so yet. I took this to a picnic and it got rave reviews and everyone wanted the recipe. A great party dip that is different from the regular spinach dip usually served out of the round loaf. This dip is chunky; more like a spread. I omitted the caraway seeds, due to personal preference and used a rye loaf. You've got to try this!!! Thanks for posting this gem, Manda!
