Reuben Dip: A creamy cheesy dip that tastes just like a Reuben sandwich. If you like the sandwich you’ll love the dip!
Have you ever ate a reuben sandwich and thought, man I could eat this all day! If you answered yes to that question, I’ve got you covered.You can dip, dip, dip all you want!
Because I’veheard ordering thirdsies in a deli is frowned upon! 🙁 Hot Reuben dip is easy to make ,and it is every bit as good as the sandwich. (I’d argue it is even better!)
There are a few different ways you can make this Reuben dip. We’ll cover oven and crock pot versions below. I promise you your party guests will be begging for the recipe before the night is over. Other dips I love to serve at parties are Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip and Crab Rangoon Dip. These are all total crowdpleasers!
Reuben Dip Recipe
This is a reuben dip with cream cheese, and you know if it has cream cheese it is going to be good! The first thing you’re going to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, spray your cooking dish with a non stick cooking spray.
In your mixing bowl, you’ll combine your cream cheese (make sure it is softened), mayonnaise and Thousand Island dressing. After you’ve done that, drain your sauerkraut and rinse. Make sure to squeeze it dry with paper towels. We don’t want any extra liquid ,if we can help it. Next, chop your corn beef and add it, the sauerkraut ,and the shredded Swiss cheese into the mixture. Mix this by hand, making sure that it is thoroughly combined.
Spread the dip into a baking dish and then take a fork and run it across the top in no particular pattern. This will make the top of your dip look a little jagged. Doing this will allow the sauerkraut to brown evenly ,and give you a more caramelized flavor. Finally, add the rest of the cheese to the top.Let it bake for about thirty minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Resist the urge to dig right in. I know it will be hard because it’s going to smell amazing. However, you’ll be glad you waited. If you were to spoon the dip out now you’d see some extra liquid. That liquid will disperse and become part of the hot reuben dip as we wait. I like to wait about ten to fifteen minutes before enjoying. Plus, you don’t want to burn your tongue! Cheese burns are no fun!
What Should I Use for Dipping?
A traditional reuben sandwich is served on rye bread, so for this recipe I suggest using mini rye bread or crackers. Mini loaves of rye are usually found around the deli counter at your super market. Butter cracker, wheat crackers, and pretzels are also a yummy choice. But don’t feel like you have to stick to those items. You can use whatever you like.
Can Reuben Dip be Reheated?
You can definitely reheat your reuben dip! A microwave safe bowl and 1-2 minutes will make the perfect late night snack.
Reuben Dip CrockPot
I love to be able to throw something into a crockpot ,and forget about it. You don’t have to worry about it until it’s done. It also makes clean up a breeze. (Especially true if you use a crockpot liner).
If you’re wondering if reuben dip can be made in the crockpot, the answer is absolutely yes. It’s so simple.
Reuben Dip Crockpot recipe: Combine all ingredients in the crock pot and cook for three hours on low. So easy, and just as tasty as if you baked it in the oven. It is great for parties, as you can serve right out of the Crockpot set to the Keep Warm function.
Can you Freeze Reuben Dip?
Yes, you can freeze reuben dip. If you do freeze it be sure it is in an air right container. When preparing from the freezer add an extra 15-20 minutes to your bake time. Freezing the dip gives you a quick party appetizer that you can pull out anytime. If you’re anything like me unexpected company has you scrambling to clean, so a snack is one less thing I have to worry about!
