All the flavors of the classic sandwich in one easy, piping hot dip! Make it in your oven, on the stove top, or in a crock pot. It’s always a crowd favorite!
If you love Reuben sandwiches, you’re going to LOVE Reuben Dip.
It’s all the same ingredients but mashed up in a pan and baked until hot and bubbly. No further questions, Your Honor.
It’s one of my favorite dips (hard to play favorites when the contenders are Spinach Artichoke Dip and Bacon Dip) and I was pretty excited about all the “recipe testing” involved with preparing it three different ways.
Here are my tips for Reuben Dip Domination.
First, make your own Homemade Thousand Island Dressing if you can stand it. Unlike making homemade ranch dressing, which involves buttermilk, thousand island dressing comes together with all basic pantry ingredients.
Assuming you regularly stock things like mayo and ketchup. I’m pretty sure you do.
Next, use deli corned beef, not the large roast available around St. Patty’s Day. This is a dip for all year long!
Third, pick your method. I like the oven method because top gets golden brown and slightly crusty. But, you can’t beat the speed of the stove top method nor the convenience of the crock pot method. (All methods are explained in the recipe below.)
A huge THANKS to my sister Monica for sharing this recipe with me. She made it first, she makes it best.
Then again, isn’t food always better when someone else makes it for you?
