This super easy Reuben dip only has 4 ingredients! Only those ingredients contained in a traditional sandwich! Perfect for St. Patty’s Day or any party!
This Reuben dip is so easy because it only has 4 ingredients! There is absolutely nothing in it that would not be in a traditional deli Rueben sandwich! Use leftover corned beef, or corned venison from your corned beef and cabbage dinner, or use deli corned beef. Whichever you have access to.
What you need
- corned beef or corned venison
- swiss cheese
- thousand island dressing
How to serve reuben dip
To serve this deliciously tasting dip, use a small casserole, or for a nicer presentation, serve it in a carved out rye bread bowl.
This hot baked Reuben dip is creamy and gooey, with tons of melted cheese. Be sure to use a good quality, thick thousand island dressing. The ones in the bottle will not perform as well and thick, quality dressings, if you don’t make your own. Making your own is super easy, though, with just a few pantry ingredients.
How to make it
- Simply add all ingredients to a medium bowl. mix well.
Place in 2 qt. casserole dish. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Serve with rye crackers, or bagel chips. To serve in the optional bread bowl, carve out hole in the center of the top of bread, large enough to accomodate about 3 cups. Reserve the bread that you cut out for dipping. Fill with dip. Heat in oven for about 25 minutes.
Can you make Reuben dip in the slow cooker?
You can certainly make this dip in the slow cooker. After ingredients are mixed up, place in 2 qt. crockpot. Cook on low about 4-5 hours, or high for 2-3 hours, until hot and bubbly. I prefer the oven method because the top gets a bit browned and crispy.
Can you freeze Reuben dip?
It is best not to freeze this Reuben dip, because the thousand island dressing is made mostly from mayonnaise. Once the dip is thawed the mayonnaise will fall out of solution and separate. Your dip will have a bad texture.
Other delicious appetizers
