This may not be a true Reuben, but the taste is still fantastic and it's easy to make. I like to serve this bake with homemade soup. —Kathy Kittell, Lenexa, Kansas

"I made this for my husband and he loved it! The only thing he said negatively was he could go without the top crescent rolls. Also make sure to drain the kraut ALOT!!"

"This is one of the greatest ways to use leftover St Patrick's day diner! After Rueben leftovers, try this quick and easy to prepare meal. Usually prepare on Pampered Chef stone according to directions but we skip the top crescent rolls. Leaving the hearty exposed Rueben components. Yummy and perfect. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home I love recipes that us classic ingredients with a new twist."

"Our family loves a good reuben, but this just did not have the right taste; it was very easy to make and looked nice on the plate, but if you are accustomed to a classic reuben flavor, the crescent rolls just don't have the same taste - even loaded up with caraway."

"I did not make this, but I plan to. I judged 4H demonstrations today and one 4Her made this dish. Simply delicious. I will probably cut back on the amount of corned beef and plan on using more Thousand Island dressing. Might mix the caraway seeds in with sauerkraut as someone suggested."

"I loved this recipe and I added just a pinch of brown sugar and caraway to the sauerkraut, Every one raved at the recipe on how good it was! Went well with a cabbage, pineapple, and marshmallow salad..."

"I reduced the amount of corned beef to 1 lb. and the Swiss cheese to 3/4 lb.

Great recipe. I used Bavarian style sauerkraut, which is a bit sweeter and has caraway seed in it.
Tastes even better when it's reheated the next day!"

"Great twist on a Reuben. Also good as a Rachael with turkey instead of corned beef."
