Ingredients

  • 1 package cream cheese (8 ounces), softened
  • 1/2 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 8 ounces corned beef chopped
  • 1 cup sauerkraut (drained and squeezed)
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Instructions

  • Mix cream cheese and dressing in a medium mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Add remaining ingredients, and stir to combine.
  • Transfer mixture to a 9-inch pie pan or baking dish. 
  • Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
  • Serve warm with crackers or chips

Slow Cooker Instructions

  • Follow steps 1 and 2. You can mix it directly in the slow cooker crock. Then cook dip on HIGH for 2-3 hours or LOW for 4-6 hours.

Notes

  • Serve with crackers or chips. Butter crackers are classic easy. For a variety, use pretzel crackers, baguette crisps, or pieces of rye.
  • Drain and dry the sauerkraut before measuring. Drain it in a colander. Then transfer to a dish towel or several layers of paper towels. Gently squeeze so that a little additional moisture comes out. Be careful not to squeeze too much, or you'll lose too much flavor.
  • You can use leftover corned beef from a slow cooker corned beef and cabbage, OR you can use corned beef from the deli counter.
  • Make this Reuben Dip in the oven or slow cooker! Both directions are in the recipe!
  • I DO NOT recommend freezing this dip, but you can definitely make this dip ahead!
  • Make Ahead Directions: Follow steps 1-3 of the recipe. Then store covered in the refrigerator until ready to bake, no more than 1-2 days.
