Reviews for Reuben Crescent Bake
"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..."
"Delicious. I like the tang of sauerkraut so I won't rinse it before I drain it next time. dinner received rave reviews from friends!!"
"This is a easy lunch with a salad; we all enjoy it for a quick break @ the beach. MMM"
"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."
"Crescent roles were to much breading, maybe next time with FILO?"
"Sooo! good. Great for easy weeknight dinner with salad."
"This is pretty good if we want something different than our usual fare. We make it true to the recipe."
"Made this for St Paddy's day and everyone devoured it!!"
"My husband loves Reuben sandwiches and he loved this casserole!"
"Loved this recipe. Will try it without the top crust next time as the dough is a little sweet. Also, I didn't rinse the sauerkraut. We like the tangy taste."
"I make this recipe for twenty elderly residents at an assisted living facility. Many of the residents like it very much! I leave the top crust off. It's a delicious and quick meal to fix! I'm always searching for those kind of recipes! -Thank you!"
"This was so good!!!!!! Huge hit in our house! Will make again!"
"I only used the bottom layer of crescent rolls and I also added a cup of thousand islands and drizzled on top upon serving and it was amazing. Used about 1/2 lb of boars head corned beef and 3/4 lb of swiss cheese since we love cheese!!!! I would say the key is more dressing less bread :)"
"My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe, though my husband felt he would like it to be more saucy. Next time I will just add a bit more dressing."
"Yesterday (3-13-2013) I had ladies in for lunch and cards. I served this casserole and it was a huge hit. Left-over's served to hubby at dinner - another hit. This is a keeper. I served it with lime jello w/ pears and your Pistachio pudding cake - another winner. Thanks TOH!!"
"A friend of mine made this or close to it for her and her husband, just my Irish Luck, they didn't care for it. It's wonderful!! I do believe I want to try this with Russian dressing next and test out that flavor. Will let you know. My church ladies will love this!"
"One of my new favorite recipes!"
"Made with turkey and sweet kraut. Was delicious flavor."
"This is a very good recipe! I would have left the top layer of crescent rolls off, but the hubby likes his bread so I left it on for him."
"SOOO delicious! Also good with ham."
"The crescent rolls give it a little buttery taste -- kinda throws off the taste of the reuben....But other than that I loved it!!!!"
"I made this for a party and it was a hugh hit. Everyone was asking for me to make it for them again or to have the recipe themselves."
"My husband & I both loved this recipe. I used a refrigerated pizza crust instead, & it still worked great. I like the fact that I can prepare it all at once for the whole family, instead of making several Reubens in a row. Great new St. Patty's Day tradition at our hosue!"
"This was fairly easy to put together but none of the flavors were very distinct. It tasted good enough but I propably won't make this version again."
"This has become a family favorite! We love Reuben sandwiches so this is a big hit! You can now buy tubes of crescent roll dough that is NOT perforated which makes this recipe a breeze to fix."
"We loved the flavors of this dish. Next time I make it I will eliminate the crescent roll layer on top and crumble rye crackers over the top for some crunch."
"I was surprised at how delicious this was considering how easy it is to prepare. It would also be good cut in smaller pieces and served as an appetizer."
"DELICIOUS. I ALSO USED LOW FAT INGREDIENTS. NEXT TIME, I AM GOING TO USE TURKEY INSTEAD OF CORNED BEEF."
"I decided to try this out on my husband to see if we could have it when we invite guests for lunch. He thought it was great and wants me to serve it again anytime. I also cut the recipe in half and used an 8" x 8" pan. I only used one tube of rolls. MsLucy"
"Very easy to assemble, impressive enough to entertain, it's like a lasagne. I substituted low fat crescent rolls and used alpine lace swiss cheese, low fat thousand island and didn't compromise the taste at all!!!"
"I cut the recipe in half and put it in a 11x7 baking pan. I still used two tubes of crescent rolls though. This is really, really good... even my picky 6 year old ate it... sauerkraut and all!"
"That's sauerkraut for those of you who don't understand the pleeps *****"
"My subsitutions for this recipe, since I am not a *** person, is that I eliminated the *** and tomato sauce using homemade 1000 Isle dressing. Yum!"
"I made this yesterday. I have to say that I don't particularly care for Reuben sandwiches, but I found this to be great...all it needed was a tad of salt. Yummy!"
