Reuben Bread Pudding

Our Aunt Renee always brought this casserole to family picnics in Chicago. It became so popular that she started bringing two or three. I have also made it using dark rye bread or marbled rye, and ham instead of corned beef—all the variations are delicious! —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona

    I would give this 10 stars if I could. Got the recipe this morning, read the reviews, went out bought the ingredients and made it for lunch for my friend. We both loved it and she asked for the recipe so she could make for her family. Absolutely like eating a reuben. Thanks for a great recipe

    I love Reuben sandwiches and this had the same great taste. But, I didn't like the texture of the bread pudding, too mushy for my taste. I tried baking it a little longer but that didn't help much. So I will stick to a regular sandwich in the future.

    This is excellent as written. We served it with extra Thousand Island dressing. YUM!!

    Very good. I used gluten free bread and added some leftover carrots that I cooked with the corner beef. Will definitely make again.
