Hot Reuben Dip for #SRC



For this months Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned the blog Flying on Jess Fuel. First off I was excited just because my daughters name is Jess. Then when I went her her blog I was super excited. She has some seriously mouth watering food over there! Plus she and her hubby are just so ding dang cute you want to squeeze them!!

After reading through her blog, and drooling like a teething baby, I decided I wanted to try this Hot Reuben Dip. With football season upon us (well atleast pre-season football), and NASCAR still going strong, we spend a lot of weekend time in front of the TV enjoying both of them. Plus, we LOVE Reuben sandwiches, so of course this dip just about jumped off the page at me.

I changed things just slightly. I made some homemade 1000 Island Dressing instead of using bottled. We don't using dressing so I didn't want to buy a whole bottle when it would just go to waste. So I made the amount of homemade dressing that the recipe called for. Other than that the only thing I did was to broil it slightly to get the top a bit browned.

Well, can I tell you how good this dip is? WOW! We seriously devoured it. A NASCAR race, cold beer, and this dip? Oh ya, we were in heaven!!



Hot Reuben Dip
adapted from Flying on Jess Fuel


For the 1000 Island Dressing:
½ cup non fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 teaspoons onion, finely diced
1 small clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Kosher salt
2-3 dashes Franks Red Hot (optional)
1 teaspoon hot prepared horseradish

For the dip:
1 package (8 oz) light cream cheese, softened
1½ cups shredded Swiss cheese
4 oz deli sliced corned beef, chopped
½ cup sauerkraut, drained
1000 Island Dressing (see above)
Dark Rye toast points, for serving


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt, ketchup, pickle relish, onion, garlic, vinegar, salt, hot sauce, and horseradish. Whisk to combine well.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the salad dressing, cream cheese, 1 cup of Swiss cheese, dressing, corned beef, and sauerkraut. Spread in a pie plate. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of Swiss cheese.

Bake for about 15 minutes, or until bubbly around the edges. Turn on the broiler and broil just until the top of the dip begins to brown. Remove and allow to cool slightly.

Meanwhile toast the slices of rye bread, then cut them corner to corner to form the toast points.

Serve with dark rye toast points.

ENJOY!!

  1. This is the BEST football dip!! Possibly some of my worst photography, though, so I'm glad you actually did the recipe justice with your beautiful photos! Love the idea of making your own dressing-- mine usually goes to waste too!

    1. I have the same problem with my daughter but I told her that it only has a/2 cup in it. She said it was the the texture that bugged her not the flavor so this should be OK with her. We will see the next time I make it though.
