☘️St. Pat’s Leftovers? Easy Reuben Casserole! ☘️

This easy Reuben casserole is a fantastic way to use your St. Patrick’s day leftovers, or you can make it using corned beef that you pick up at the deli!

This casserole makes a great party dish as well! All of the great flavors of a Reuben without the tedious sandwich assembly.

Easy Reuben Casserole

Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 6 slices rye bread, cubed
  • 16 ounces sauerkraut, well-drained
  • 1 pound corned beef, finely chopped
  • ¾-1 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

NOTE: If you cooked corned beef in the slow cooker, use leftovers from that. Otherwise, you shaved or sliced deli corned beef. In either case, chop the corned beef into bite-size pieces.

 Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish and one sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  2. Spread bread cubes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Layer half the sauerkraut, corned beef, and a half-cup of swiss cheese over the bread cubes. Repeat another sauerkraut, corned beef, and cheese layer. Pour Thousand Island dressing over the top. Cover with aluminum foil, sprayed-side down.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove and discard foil. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese over the casserole. Continue baking until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 more minutes.
Ready for the oven!

NOTE: You can make a Keto version of this casserole by omitting the bread cubes.

As this dish is quite rich, I like to serve it with a vinegar-based cole slaw. Both the crunch of the cabbage and the sharpness of the vinegar pair well with this otherwise ooey-gooey meal!

Have a great weekend and a fantastic time celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! For more “green” inspiration, check out this fashion and home decor post.
