Lucky Layered Reuben Casserole
Makes 6 servings
deli sliced corned beef
rinsed, drained, and squeezed (about 2 cups)
gherkin baby pickles
rye bread crumbs
I pulsed a few slices of Rye bread to get the bread crumb consistency
1000 Island dressing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray an 8x8 dish with cooking spray.
Build your casserole in layers.
Start with a layer of drained sauerkraut (be sure to drain and pat dry).
Sprinkle on chopped pickles.
Add 4 slices of Swiss cheese.
Then add chopped corned beef on top.
Drizzle with 1000 Island dressing, spreading to cover.
Add 4 more slices of Swiss cheese.
Finally, sprinkle on bread crumbs. Optional: you can spray lightly with cooking spray to crisp up bread more.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden.
To make the bread crumbs I added a few chopped slices of Rye bread to a food processor and pulsed until it was the texture/size of bread crumbs.
