Ultimate Reuben Casserole

Recipe by Wildflour

Took me a bit to get this recipe "just right". I cooked the corned beef brisket myself first, but I suppose you could cheat a little if short on time. A very hearty meal in itself!

This is similar to a recipe I had but this is so much better. YUM! Used deli turkey pastrami and had homemade thousand island on the side. Great job.
