Do You Like A Good Reuben Sandwich? Then You’ll Love It As A Casserole!

This Reuben Sandwich Casserole Is Easy, Ooey-Gooey, Tangy Goodness

I didn’t discover the reuben sandwich until the mid-point of my life (yes, I guess I was a sheltered country bumpkin!), when I moved to a big city and a friend took me to a NY-style deli. When I read the menu I decided to order a multi-cheese grilled sandwich and thought I was being quite bold. I got my order and sat down to wait for my friend.

She came to the table with this grilled reuben sandwich that was unlike anything I had ever seen! Golden and crispy on the outside, slices of melting cheese and some unknown meat sticking out all around, a pinkish-orange sauce oozing from between the layers, and – gasp! – was that actually sauerkraut? It was! Eww!

But it smelled absolutely divine. My friend asked me if I had never seen a Reuben sandwich before, and asked if I would like to trade half of hers for half of mine. I’ll try just about anything once, so I did. OMG! The flavors and textures exploded inside my mouth! Salty and tender, sweet and creamy, crispy and sour, meaty and firm, cheesy and melty – I was pretty sure I was going to die right on the spot! I didn’t.

But it was an absolute mess to eat! I felt like I had Reuben sandwich smeared all over my face, and some was running down my arms. We went through a full container of flimsy napkins cleaning ourselves up.


Quick Tip:  Make sure that you get all of the liquid drained from your sauerkraut. I suggest wringing it out with your hands and then squeezing it out in paper towels. This will ensure your casserole doesn’t get soupy.

    How well would this freeze? I love sauerkraut, but my mother (who happens to be my roommate) does not.

    Looking at the ingredients, I think would would freeze alright after baking. I think I’d freeze individual portions, in your case, though, as you’ll be eating this by yourself! Smaller zippered-style freezer bags (with all the extra air squeezed out) should work fine for this.
