An excellent choice for the Reuben lovers on your list, this snack sized portion of the classic Reuben casserole recipe comes with a little twist…cream cheese! I made this dip many times and have received rave reviews. You can too…so simple and easy!
1/2 pound of deli corned beef, coarsely chopped
1 cup sauerkraut, rinsed, well drained, and coarsely chopped
1 8-oz. size cream cheese (can use low fat), softened
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup Thousand Island salad dressing
Mix all ingredients in 1-1/2 – 3 quart crockpot. Cover crockpot and cook on LOW for 4 hours. Stir to combine and scrape down sides. Dip will hold for 2 hours on LOW. Serve with party rye bread slices, pretzels, toasted beer bread, or French bread cubes.
Make it a Gift:One of my favorite ways to give a prepared warm dip is in a mini crock pot. The can easily be found at your local Walmart, Big Lots, or online here…especially just prior to the holidays. Look out for themed crock pots as well. I purchased one that was shaped like a football and gave it to the hostess at one of our many Steeler parties. I believe it was only $12! Here is one I found online for around $15
