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!

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. Made these for a family get-together for the day after thanksgiving. Huge hit and were loved and devoured by all! Definitely recommend!!5 stars

  2. I made these for a boat raft up where people share and pass appetizers across from boat to boat. These were a hit! I doubled the recipe and came home empty handed. I could hear people saying, “Wow, who made the Rueben’s?” I definitely will be making these again!5 stars

  3. 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.

  4. 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!! 

  5. 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!

  6. 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?
