My daughter shared this recipe with me for a hearty spread that tastes just like a Reuben sandwich. Serve it from a slow cooker set to low so that it stays tasty and warm. —Rosalie Fuchs, Paynesville, Minnesota

"Turned out great but make sure you keep the crock pot plugged in..when it starts to cool, it's not so appetizing looking."

"I made this recipe as written for the first time and servd t at a family gathering. I made it again for a church function and had many call me for the recipe. I have since adapted this recipe. I didn't rinse the sauerkraut entirely. I also chopped it after squeezing it dry & then putting back into the liquid. I substituted a Hungarian spicy sausage, or a chorizo, or Kielbasi for the deli corned beef. I have a variety of pans and cookers to choice from. I tried it with then slow cooker and with a dutch oven on the grill or stove top. dependingn the meat I add, i may substitue different cheeses or add cheese with a little zing or tang to the swiss cheese. Goat chees can be substituted for the cream cheese or added to the mixture in palce of swiss cheese depending on one's taste. I serve it in a variety of ways, ina slow cooker, in the dutch oven and keep it warm in the fire place or on the grill.I have tried a bread bowl made from Peasant bread, Jewish rye bread as well as Pumpernickel bread. This is really "peasant food" and would be great on any occassion."
