Low-carb Reuben Casserole
photo by Posiespocketbook
- Ready In:
- In a large casserole dish sprayed with PAM, layer slices of corned beef (the thin sliced - not chipped - works best). Kind of scrunch them up with an "uneven approach" so it's not a slab of corned beef.
- Drain saurkraut of 1/2 its juice and lay atop corned beef (if you like the sweeter variety of kraut, thoroughly rinse off canned/jarred juice and replace with a bit of cool water -- toss 1/2 tsp Brown Sugar Twin or Splenda into it before adding to the casserole dish.) Top with swiss cheese layer and bake at 350?F for 15 minutes or until cheese is melty but not liquidy.
- While dish is baking, in separate bowl mix Thousand Island Dressing, Mayonnaise, and Relish.
- Remove casserole dish from oven, slice in 4 serving-size squares and top with dollops of dressing mixture.

Made it today, just 1/2 recipe. I used 8 oz deli corned beef, 1/2 can of sauerkraut (totally drained), topped it with 4 Tbsp Thousand Island dressing (Walden Farms, 0 carb), then about 3 oz. of cheese. We ate it on homemade, almost 0 carb bread, which I grilled in butter. We didn't make the topping, but had extra Thousand Island dressing on the side. Felt like we weren't on a diet. Wonderful, quick meal.
This was really good. I added a little caraway seeds on top of the sauerkraut to give it a "rye bread taste". But other than that I kept it the same. I found that it became watery as it baked so I had to drain the pan, but it didn't take away from the flavor. Excellent low carb recipe!! Thanks Jovigirl!
Since becoming very low carb conscious, this recipe is by far my favorite. It is so simple to make and is absolutely delicious. I used Boars Head corned beef (only downside is it is a bit pricey, around $12.50/lb). Since I am good to have fat, but not sugar, I altered the topping sauce with Walden Farms Sugar Free thousand island, Hellman's and Dill Relish. I made this last week and already bought supplies to make again!
