Creamy Reuben Casserole

This Reuben casserole dish is great to serve for St. Patrick's Day - or any time. It features corned beef, sauerkraut and other ingredients that make Reuben sandwiches so popular. It's always well received at a potluck. —Margery Bryan, Royal City, Washington

    Save yourself the effort and just make a Reuben sandwich! I doused it with Russian dressing to make it palatable! Pitching the leftovers...

    This was a huge disappointment. The recipe looked like it would make a great meal but it just didn't. There was no Reuben flavor -- not much flavor of any kind, actually. Much better to leave out the onion, sour cream, and garlic; put the remaining ingredients between the two slices of rye; pan grill it; and enjoy a Reuben sandwich.

    I am not even a huge fan of Reubens but I loved this casserole as much as my husband did! I did drizzle 2-3 T of thousand island dsg to the top just before adding the cheese and bread. I will definitely make this recipe again.

    This is a great change from a classic Ruben Sandwich. So simple to make and so tasty. Great game night dish.

    Made as directed. It was just OK. I had thousand island dressing on the side which made it taste more like a Rueben.

    This was FANTASTIC! Reuben is my favorite sandwich but this casserole is a great dish to throw together. It's very comforting and my kids even loved it!

    Didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped

    I made this with leftover corned beef after St. Pat's Day. It was yummy. It does have a lot of fat though.
