This dip…. this dip! Reuben dip is everything a dip should be (let’s see how many times I write the word dip in this post). It is full of cheese, meat, and so much flavor. If you’re a lover of the sandwich you’re sure to love this dip! Nothing like the perfect dip to make your Superbowl party extra special. Full recipe is located at the bottom of this post.
I Dip, You Dip, We Dip:
That heading, so original. We start by prepping each layer of the dip (there are four). The first is your thousand island layer. It’s a mixture of cream cheese and the homemade dressing spread in a thin layer at the base of your dish (aka a pie plate). If you are not in the mood to make the dressing portion from scratch you can always add pre-made dressing. Find your favorite sauerkraut and be sure to drain it and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Slice and dice your corned beef into a cast iron skillet to get it nice and crispy. Place the sauerkraut over the cream cheese layer, top with the crispy corned beef, and add a whole bunch of Swiss cheese. Bake till bubbly and serve with chips, crackers, or mini pumpernickel rye toasts!
