I may have to say that this recipe is *almost* as yummy as my favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip. It’s that good!

reuben dip ingredients Ingredients

  • Corned Beef – Shredded Corn Beef is what is used in the classic sandwich and also in this dish.
  • Thousand Island Dressing – I buy this from the store for a quick and easy addition.
  • Mayonaise – Adds a creamy texture when combined with the dressing.
  • Swiss Cheese – Shredded cheese gives the dish so much flavor and taste. Swiss is very common with Reuben sandwiches – you can use mozzarella if you’d prefer.
  • Sauerkrat – This is one of the biggest stars of the show! Adds a tanginess that just pairs perfectly with the other flavors.

Spread sauerkraut onto the bottom of a 9X13 inch baking pan.

Crock Pot Instructions:

Layer all of the ingredients into a small crockpot. Turn on low for 4 hours or high for 2. Keep warm to enjoy!

Tips + Variations

  • Drain the sauerkraut. This is important. You don’t want any excess liquid from the sauerkraut in your dip because it will make it watery.
  • Use Reuben lunchmeat. If you’re wanting a simple shortcut, just buy some thinly sliced Reuben lunchmeat that you can tear apart and use.
  • Don’t overbake. Pay attention to the cheese on top. Once it’s bubbling, that’s a good clue that it’s ready to be pulled from the oven.

What to Serve with Reuben Dip

This dip is perfect for dipping all kinds of things in it! My favorite is Rye or Pumpernickle Bread!

  • Pumpernickel Bread
  • Baguette Bread
  • Breadsticks
  • Cucumbers
  • Rye Bread
  • Any wheat crackers

Feel free to dip anything that you want! All crackers, bread, and veggies can make a great choice!

How to Reheat this Corned Beef Dip

If you have any dip leftover, just reheat in the microwave or low and slow in the oven. You can add on some fresh cheese as well to give it an even big taste and flavor.
