This corned beef and sauerkraut casserole is what Irish dreams are made of! Learn how to make a reuben, but as a casserole dish that’s easy to serve for dinner any night of the week. Why save this for St. Patrick’s day when you could be eating it ALL the time?

  1. Start by placing half of the rye bread cubes into the bottom of your casserole dish, and get the oven preheated (set to 350°F).
  2. In a bowl, combine sauerkraut, sour cream, Russian dressing, and chopped pickles.
  3. Pour half of the mixture over the bread cubes in the casserole dish, then top with slices of corned beef.
  4. Then layer on the rest of the casserole: top with swiss cheese, the rest of the sauerkraut, the rest of the bread cubes, and then the rest of the cheese (in that order).
  5. Drizzle everything with melted butter (yum!)
  6. Cover the casserole and bake for 30 minutes at 350°F. Then remove the cover and bake another 10 minutes.

It comes out so hot and soooooooo juicy and flavorful. I can’t wait for you to try this.
