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

Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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."
"This hit the nail on the head! The flavor was awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better reuben casserole recipe! My husband LOVED it as reuben's are his favorite. To everyone reading this review.... every single recipe I have ever made from Kittencal has come out 100% perfect and delicious!!!!! Thanks!!!!!"
"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."
"Super easy to make and a nice alternative to a Reuben sandwich when you have a taste for one."
"I don't know how but my local grocery store had no corn beef, so I had to use turkey. It still turned out great! I also used my own homemade thousand island dressing! Thanks for posting."
"This was fantastic! My son doesn't even like saurkraut, but loved this - even had seconds. I upped the thousand island dressing though, because I like the sweetness. Otherwise, made the recipe to the "T". Awesome casserole! Thank you! Very easy to make. Just gotta come up with a quicker way to crumble the bread. :-)"
"Fantastic! I had leftover cooked corned beef that I had cut up, so I used that (at least 1 lb). I think I used about 1/2 cup of the Thousand Island dressing. I loved that crunchy, buttery rye topping. This really is better than the sandwich! Thanx for sharing. This is a keeper!"
"This was great. I did, however, change it to make it a little less fattening. I used roasted turkey, light dressing and low fat swiss. It was still delicious with these changes. Thanks!"
"I had leftover corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss cheese and didn't want to waste it so I went looking for a casserole. Came upon this one and I made it for DH to take to work. I had purchased a frozen Reuben casserole for him before that he liked except for the 'freaky bottom crust it had'. After eating this one he said it was perfect! Simple to make, and something different to change up the lunch routine for him. Thanks for posting."
"I went a bit overboard on this - I used freshly cooked corned beef (not deli), fresh sauerkraut (Hebrew National), homemade Thousand Island (my recipe #64817), and homemade rye bread (whew!). It was really good, and everyone enjoyed it. The only change I would make would be doubling the dressing."
"Wow! This was really delicious. I used dill rye bread (my favorate), pre - sliced swiss cheese, and reduced - fat 1,000 island. I used leftover corned beef also. I am a salt fanatic so this was right up my alley. I can see how easy this would be to eat the whole thing. I think this would be a fantastic pot luck or carry in dish. I am sure you will come home with an empty casserole. Thanks for sharing with us. "
"Hey, Kittencal, Made this for only one last evening with left-overs. Excellent flavors...and you were right...I ATE THE WHOLE THING. One suggestion: Tear the corn beef into bite-size piece; it is easier to spoon out a portion. Thanks for the easiest Rueben "fix" ever! Caroline"
"Hi Kitten, I had the neighbors over for dinner Saturday night and made this. Everyone loved it and she asked for the recipe. What a easy way way to get your Reuben fix. I made it exactly as written. Thanks so much for suggesting this. You are such a good cook. "
"So good! I used corned beef from the deli and followed the recipe exactly. I had a friend over for dinner last night and he and my son and ok, yes myself ate the whole thing and the guys kept going on and on about how good it is. I really love thousand island on corned beef so I added more like ketchup, so yummy!"
