There aren't a ton of recipes out there as easy as this layer and bake reuben casserole--and even fewer that taste so good with so little work. Thanks to some good quality store shortcuts, you can assemble and bake this one pan masterpiece in under 30 minutes.
- 3/4 cup fresh rye bread crumbs (see below)
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 1/3 cup mayo
- 1/3 cup thousand island dressing
- 16 ounces sauerkraut
- 1/2 pound shredded deli corned beef
- 2 cups swiss cheese shredded or slices
Preheat the oven to 400.
In a food processor, place 2 to 3 slices of rye bread. Pulse until small crumbs form. Measure out 3/4 cup and add the melted butter. Stir well and set aside.
Drain half the liquid from the sauerkraut and layer it in the bottom of a 2.5 quart baking dish.
Layer on the shredded corned beef over the sauerkraut.
In a small bowl mix together the mayo and the Thousand Island dressing. Spread as evenly as you can over the corned beef.
Top with a layer of Swiss cheese slices or shredded cheese.
Cover with the bread crumbs and bake 25-30 minutes until the cheese melts and everything is heated through. Serve warm.
