Hot Reuben Dip

A Hot Reuben Dip is a delicious appetizer or snack inspired by the classic Reuben sandwich, which typically includes corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing on rye bread. The dip version combines these same flavors in a creamy, warm dip form that you scoop onto rye crisps. Another way to enjoy this dip would be to spread it on mini rye bread and griddle it for mini sandwiches. A variation is also to make a Rachel vs. a Reuben, which subs out the corned beef for turkey.
