Reuben Dip

This delicious dip is so easy and it will surely be the hit of any appetizer buffet.


Hot Reuben Dip with Rye ToastsAre you ready for some FOOTBALLL?  Super Bowl 50 is this Sunday!  My husband and Super Bowl both turned half a century old this year!  While my guy loves himself some football, I love myself some snacks while watching football, and to be honest the Super Bowl commercials are really what I’m looking forward to!  Remember this one?   Sorry, I can’t help it, this one still makes me laugh out loud!


Hot Reuben Dip with Rye ToastsEvery year I try to come up with a new dip for the Super Bowl Sunday smorgasbord. My sister was telling me about a Reuben Dip she makes, she said you pretty much mix everything that’s in a Reuben sandwich together minus the bread bake it and Voila!  Oooey Gooey reuben dip!

You may be saying “I’ve never even had a reuben”, or you may even be saying “I don’t really like reuben sandwiches”.  Well I think you need to just give this dip a try despite your shortcomings in the taste bud arena. It’s so good!  I nearly ate half the dern recipe myself while recipe testing.

Servings 8 servings


  • 1-8 ounce brick of cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce Heinz is the brand I usually use.
  • 1 tbsp dill relish heaping tablespoon
  • 1/2 pound thickly shaved corned beef chopped
  • 1-15 ounce can sauerkraut, drained see not below
  • 2 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese
  • 10 slices rye bread


preheat oven to 400°

  • Combine all ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup cheese for garnish.
    Make sure ingredients are creamed together well.
    Place creamed ingredients in a shallow dish, such as a pie plate or an 11×7 baking dish. Top with 1/2 cup of reserved cheese.
    Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

Rye Toasts:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    Cut crusts off bread and cut bread into long rectangle slices.
    Place bread rectangles on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until bread is dried and just starting to brown.
    Allow to cool on baking sheet.
  • Serve warm dip with rye toasts, pretzels, and tortilla chips!


Sauerkraut: drain sauerkraut well, place in a colander or a larger strainer and press down with paper towel to remove as much liquid as possible before adding to other dip ingredients. 
Note: Split this recipe in half, bake one half, and freeze the other portion so when you need a quick appetizer you have it at the ready in your freezer. Frozen reuben dip will need to bake an additional 15 minutes.
