How to Make Reuben Rolls

It’s even simpler to make Reuben Rolls than it is to make the original grilled sandwich!

  1. Unroll crescents on a baking tray. Using parchment makes crescents come out amazingly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, every time!
  2. On each dough triangle place sauce, corned beef, kraut, and cheese (per recipe below).
  3. Roll up each sandwich and bake in a preheated oven until crescents are browned and the cheese melts. Yum!

Serve warm out of the oven with your favorite dippings sauce!

Variations

There are so many ways to change up this easy recipe!

  • Try sprinkling caraway seeds on the dough
  • What’s a Reuben without some pickle slaw on the side?
  • Use miniature croissants to create a tray of “Reub-atizers.”
  • Tuck the crescent dough into mini muffin tins and fill with reuben ingredients for bites
  • Use premade crescents, or bake your own from scratch.

Any way you mix it up, these incredibly tasty sandwiches are sure to be a hit with everyone who tries one! (Or you can just eat them all yourself. Whatever;)

  1. My youngest son Makes these as egg rolls and uses egg rolls wrappers and uses Russian dressing or thousand Island as a dipping sauce and deep-fried them and puts them out as an appetizer he is a very good cook

    1. We haven’t tried but that should work Brenda. Just make sure you squeeze the liquid out of the sauerkraut to stop them from getting soggy overnight.

    1. Hi Jodi, I haven’t tried freezing them. I think the best option would be to prebake them and cool completely and then freeze them. Please let us know how it works out for you.

  2. Do you cook the corn beef before wrapping them? I bought the meat in the meat section at the super market prepackaged, I’m unsure I want to make sure the meat is cook correctly!! 

  3. Hi Holly – can these roll up’s be prepped 24 hours in advance or will they become soggy?  Is it better to prep a few hours before?  Just trying to figure out timing ;-)  Thanks!

    1. I haven’t tried prepping them in advance, but I think it would work if you prepared them, refrigerated then baked them when you need them. You may need to increase the baking time a little. Let us know how it works out for your Jen!

  4. I’m not real sure how you roll these up? Do you do it according to the package instructions? They do look so good. Did anyone try freezing them? 

  5. Looks delicious. Too bad I can’t find a way to save to my Pinterest. Can you update your site to include that option? Frustrating.

  6. I love corn beef and swiss cheese. I’m looking for different menu variations for Thanksgiving instead of turkey. I’m trying this with various menu sides.

    1. Susie where did you get your sauerkraut with the caraway seeds, I live in Massachusetts and haven’t come across these as of yet . Thank you for letting me know these exist.

    1. Yes Stonkingbonkers. It’s the same dough. Credentials rolls are sold in tube in refrigerator section of a US grocery store. They are so quick and handy that people have forgotten how to make croissant dough.

  7. I made these today for a get together. I would suggest dicing the cheese & cutting the corned beef in strips. The one tablespoon of dressing was actually a little too much for my rolls so I ended up just drizzling some in the rolls.

  8. How do you think these would be if I froze them after putting them together? Would like to have something like this ready for a quick meal/snack.

    1. I haven’t tried freezing them. I think the best option would be to prebake them and cool completely and then freeze them. Please let us know how it works out for you.

  9. I made these rolls after purchasing all the ingredients. I found that the #1 important ingredient may be purchasing the original Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I bought an off-brand when in a hurry shopping and we all agreed the rolls were not very tasty. Also, my use of sauerkraut was too little. Advise to follow the recipe using a flakier roll.

  10. On the Reuben Roll Ups it says to use 1 TBS of sauce on each ………… I am assuming that means the thousand island dressing …… ?

  11. If I made this for my husband, it would probably be his favourite too! These looks amazing and delicious! Thanks for the recipe :)

  12. These little babies look amazing! They are just perfect for my St. Patrick’s Day menu! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  13. I think I will give this a try but maybe add an egg or butter wash then sprinkle with some caraway to get the rye flavor of the traditional sandwich.
