Deli flavors combine in this one-of-a-kind quiche. Serve a little Thousand Island dressing on the side for that authentic Reuben taste…at about $1 a slice. We bet no deli can beat that! —Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

"This is a regular in our house, although I do change it up a little. I use toasted, buttered rye bread instead of triscuits, and I make sure it is well toasted (dried out) mix with a little extra butter and push it into my pie plate. I also add a layer of shredded onion before the meat layer."

"I absolutely loved every bite I took. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written...wondering how those crackers would stick together to make a crust. It is a quiche...the cheese and egg mixture make everything hold together in the end. Nothing needs to be added...especially more the crust. I did use rye Triscuits and rye flour and it is definitely needed. You can't substitute the regualr Triscuit or you will not get that rye flavor for the traditional reuben. I would make this over and over...DELICIOUS and EASY! Just follow the directions exactly and you will see what I mean!"

"so difficult for me to rate this. I cuold not find rye triscuits, used ry-krisps instead and that was a big mistake. rating the rest of the quiche, it was ok, but really wanted more of a reuben taste. would for sure recommend the thousand island dressing on the side. it was just ok the way I made it."

"I made this for tonights dinner, but my husband and I didn't really care for it.  The 2 of us really enjoy sauerkraut, but we couldn't taste the kraut in this quiche, and I added a 3/4 cup.  When it came to making the crust, I ended up using the "original" Triscuit Crackers, as we couldn't find any sort of rye crackers.  And when it came to adding the butter to the crust ingredients, I ended up using 4 tablespoons, or there just wouldn't of been enough butter to make the crust ingredients stick together.  Also, I found I needed to add more corned beef to the filling, so I used a total of 4 ounces, and I cut the corned beef into 1-inch strips, and I only added and an 1/8 teaspoon of salt to the filling ingredients.  I baked the quiche for exactly 25 minutes, and the quiche turned out beautifully, but in the end, it tasted quite bland.  My husband and I ended up eating the quiche with some home-made thousand island dressing.  My husband told me I should of made reuben sandwiches for St Patty's Day instead.  I'm sorry I wasn't able to give this main dish a good review."

"I've used a created a variety of quiche recipes and this one is unique and flavorful. I had to use regular triscuits (couldn't find the Rye Triscuits) but otherwise was easy to make."
