Just In Case You Missed--Reuben Bake!

by Cindy Rippe

I posted this recipe back in March, but I've had a lot of people asking for the recipe, so here it is just in case you missed it!

I ADORE Reuben sandwiches...it's my all time favorite...this recipe is so wonderful because of the crescent roll dough, it's makes it so delicious because of the light flaky crust!

First unroll 1 tube of (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dough into one long rectangle, sealing seams and perforations.



Press onto the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Use a fork to pierce dough. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until a golden brown.


Layer with half the cheese and all of corned beef.

Combine 1 can (14 oz) sauerkraut and 2/3 cup of Thousand Island salad dressing


Spread the mixture over the corned beef

Top with remaining cheese


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the other tube of crescent dough into a 13x9 inch rectangle.

Seal seams and perforations. Place over the cheese and seal the edges together.

Brush the top with lighty beaten egg white. Sprinkle with about 3 teaspoons caraway seeds.


Bake 12-16 minutes or until heated through and the crust is golden brown.

Let is stand about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with a side salad. It's so delicious!

I hope you enjoy this as much as my family did!
