A Dippable Reuben

  • Reuben dip is a perfect appetizer for parties, game day, or St. Patrick’s Day.
  • It’s super easy to make. Just mix all the ingredients and bake in the oven.
  • This dip has all the delicious flavors of a classic Reuben sandwich with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing.
  • You can easily customize the dip to your liking by adding extra ingredients like diced onions, chopped pickles, or even bacon bits.
  • You can pair it with toasted rye bread (or pumpernickel), crackers, veggies, or pita chips. Or, let’s be real, just grab a spoon.

Ingredients for Reuben Dip

The Base – A mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, and Thousand Island (or Russian) dressing creates a creamy and tangy flavor. If you don’t have Thousand Island dressing, you can substitute mayonnaise and add a small amount of ketchup and relish.

Corned Beef – Deli-sliced corned beef is readily available. I always ask at the deli counter if they can slice it extra thick for this dip. Leftover corned beef be shredded or diced and used in place.

Sauerkraut – Sauerkraut is a tangy and sour fermented cabbage, and it can be found in almost any grocery store. Be sure to drain and squeeze well, so the dip isn’t runny.

Cheese – Swiss cheese adds flavor, while mozzarella makes it creamy and balances out the flavors.

How to Make Reuben Dip

  1. Cream together the cream cheese, sour cream, and dressing with a mixer.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir (as per the recipe below).
  3. Spread into a baking dish, sprinkle with cheese, and bake.

Reuben Dip Tips

  • Drain and squeeze the sauerkraut really well to keep the dip from getting runny.
  • Use a hand mixer to make the cream cheese extra fluffy. This will make the dip easy to scoop without breaking your chips or dippers.
  • Prepare this Reuben dip up to 24 hours in advance. If made ahead of time, it may need a little extra baking time.
  • Serve it with bread, crackers, or rye chips. If you’ve got low-carb guests, serve with cucumbers, carrots, or celery sticks.
  • Reuben dip can be kept warm in a small slow cooker or crockpot mini for serving.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave.

  1. Made this for Super Bowl – my husband gave it “100 thumbs up!” Absolutely delicious, this will be added to favorite apps and made time and time again!!!5 stars

  2. If done in the crock pot would I still need to use electric mixer on the cream cheese first? I am a Reuben fanatic! thanks for the recipe!5 stars

    1. While it’s not required, I would suggest mixing the cream cheese with an electric mixer. It adds air to the dip making it a bit softer/fluffier. Let us know how it goes!

  3. This was a HUGE hit at my work party! Didn’t last more than 15 mins I would double up on the recipe! Seriously tasty! THANK YOU for a GREAT recipe!
