These meatballs taste just like a Reuben! With a little tweaking it could also be made into a meatloaf. You can also substitute another kind of cheese if you are not a fan of swiss. Also, if you are doing low carb, you can sub parmesan cheese for the bread crumbs.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 cup sauerkraut, drained
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded swiss cheese
- 1⁄2 cup thousand island dressing
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon caraway seed
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Form into golf ball size meatballs.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes, depending on your oven.
I made this for supper tonight and ate it with Simple Steamed Cabbage, Simply Good. I forgot to use the caraway seeds which I don't really care for anyways. I can't really say it tasted like a Reuben but it was good. I used Graybert's "Thousand Island Dressing". I have enough left over for lunch tomorrow which I will put the cabbage on the bottom of my sub roll, than a layer of Reuben Meatballs, a layer of regular sauerkraut and some Thousand Island dressing. Thanks for posting.
These DO taste like reubens! We really enjoyed them! I did sub provolone for the swiss because it's what I had on hand, and I used Miller's Smoky Thousand Island Dressing for the thousand island dressing! I discovered that I don't really like caraway seeds, so I would cut back or drop them from the recipe if I made these for myself, but otherwise I really enjoyed this and DH loved the caraway seeds. We served them on hoagie buns topped with extra sauerkraut and thousand island! Thanks!
