Hot Reuben Dip for St. Patrick’s Day

Thanksgiving and Christmas are holidays that are always filled with food that I look forward to all year long. St. Patrick’s Day, on the other hand, has always left me wanting in the food department. I’ve never been too excited about corned beef and sauerkraut but I try to keep an open mind about food. My husband is obsessed with Reuben sandwiches so when I saw this dip I thought it was a sure bet to earn some points with my hubby. I’ve actually never had a Reuben sandwich but my husband and friends we had over for game night vouched that it tastes just like one.

I will warn you this may be the ugliest dip you ever make.
I take that back. It ties with our beloved Buffalo Chicken Dip for the ugliest dip I’ve ever made.
BUT it has a lot of personality and flavor to make up for it. Just know that the men will love you for it on St. Patrick’s Day…because they won’t care what it looks like.

Notes: Just ask your deli for sliced corned beef then give it a chop before you add it to the dip.

  6. I make this same dip and love it!!!

  7. I made this today and loved it! Thanks again for sharing! Linked you here

  8. You know, here in Ireland, we don’t have corned beef and cabbage on Paddy’s Day. We have normal dinner, maybe a Sunday roast (beef or ham), or if we’re lazy, fish and chips from the chipper.

    This is after the really long walk, of course. Paddy’s Day is for really long walks.

  9. nous en france on a le corne beef mais en boite donc je ferais cette rectte avec comme j adore le corné beef et la choucroute donc les deux sa dois etre une merveille

  10. I made this today for our church supper and it was a HUGE hit! There was barely any left and I doubled the recipe!! I couldn’t find any cocktail rye so I used fresh Rye, sliced it in dipping size and lightly toasted it while the dip was baking. This will surely be on my March recipe list from now on!

  11. Has anyone done this recipe in a crock pot? Thinking of adding ingredients and then warming up in the crock pot. What size crock pot would you suggest?
