Being used to my hubby's picky eating, it always surprises me when he orders a Reuben at a restaurant. I decided to put together a Hot Reuben Dip just for him--and the family loved it too!
Hot Reuben Dip is something I never thought I would enjoy. I am not a fan of Thousand Island Dressing on salad, sauerkraut in Spicy Sausage and Tortellini Soup is good but don't talk to me about sauerkraut and Polish sausage. The smell lingers for days.
But this dip. This dip is scrumptious. It really is.
Corned Beef is not something I eat on a regular basis. Okay, ever. If I am being 100% truthful, Swiss Cheese can never take the place of Cheddar in my book. I know, you are wondering how all these ingredients came together for something I enjoyed eating. The magic of cream cheese, I guess.
The Thousand Island dressing, sauerkraut, corned beef and cream cheese was put in a crock pot and out came deliciousness.
I have a small crock pot that I love using for dips, baked beans and baked potatoes. It travels well and usually works alongside my other, larger, massive family size crock pot. A small crock pot is perfect for this.
All you need to do is add sour cream, cream cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing to a crock pot and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
You are going to want to stir every 30 minutes while cooking so the ingredients blend together well. It also helps so nothing gets stuck to the sides of the crock pot.
You can store the dip in an air tight container in the fridge, but I recommend eating this dip right after it is made.
