Corned Beef Reuben Dip

Chopped corned beef is stirred in with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, mayo, thousand island dressing and horseradish are warmed in the oven or crock pot to make a super delicious Farmhouse Style Reuben Dip.

Dip crackers or toasted rye or rye and pumpernickel swirl bread into this corned beef reuben dip for one of the best appetizers or snacks.

Making a Reuben sandwich with this spread blends all of the flavors so well. Instead of making layers of all of the traditional Reuben ingredients, baked Reuben spread creates a warm, cheesy and perfect bite every time.

Rye crackers, Wheat Thins, Triscuits or other dark crackers work well for dipping. Slices of toasted rye or a rye and pumpernickel blend bread also taste great with this dip.

Warm Reuben Spread

My husband is a big fan of Reuben sandwiches and any recipe with sauerkraut. When asked what he wants for a birthday meal a Reuben sandwich with this Amazing Chocolate Cake are a couple of his farmhouse favorite recipes.

He loves this Farmhouse Style Reuben Dip recipe because the leftover dip reheats so well and can be spread on a sandwich. As a farmer he often pops in the house for a quick lunch. This spread is perfect reheated and served on toasted rye.

Some of the other recipes with sauerkraut he loves are our Easy Kielbasa & Sauerkraut, Air Fryer Sausage, Potatoes and Sauerkraut, and his favorite is this Bacon Wrapped Pork & Sauerkraut Roll-Up.

Crock Pot Reuben Dip

Reuben Dip or spread is really easy to make in the crock pot. All of the ingredients are precooked and everything just needs to be heated together.

Cook on high for 1 hour or on low for 2 to 3 hours. Use a non-stick liner and stir every 30 minutes to prevent burning.

Using a smaller 4 quart slow cooker to make dipping easier. If using a larger crock pot with a thin layer of dip in the bottom the dip will heat up much more quickly.

Turn to keep warm and continue to stir about every 30 minutes while serving.

Do take the time to separate the pieces in each stack so they will be easier to stir together with all of the other ingredients.

Spread out in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes until the cheeses are bubbly and melted.
