Hot Cheesy Reuben Dip February 21, 2013

DSC_0236

I have a serious soft spot for Reubens. I’m not sure why, because I think sauerkraut is disgusting and I’m not a huge fan of thousand island either, but this dip and Reuben sandwiches are my favorite! I don’t even like Swiss cheese…now that I think about it, it’s quite odd that I like these! When my parents owned the restaurant they would get bored of the same old same old and go through phases of different types of foods. At one point, they were making every kind of egg roll they could think of. They made chocolate chip cookie dough egg rolls, ice cream egg rolls, cheese cake egg rolls, s’more egg rolls, and every other thing they could find to put in them. I loved it when they went through these phases. After the egg rolls, they went through the ‘dip’ phase…YUM. Clearly, one of them stuck. Every thing you could throw into a dip went and it was never disappointing. The Reuben dip was by far the favorite between the employees and we started requesting it on a regular basis, then they added it as a special and it sold like crazy! It’s so cheesy and amazingly delicious, I just love it! Now, I kind of decided this on a whim when looking for my Juicy and Delicious Lemon Chicken Piccata recipe, so I didn’t have time to boil the corned beef, so instead, I just bought two large slices of corned beef from the deli and chopped them up very small. This worked out well, however, the recipe calls for shredded corned beef and I would recommend sticking to that because it mixes in together much easier, whereas this was just chunks throughout. The best part about this? The leftovers made a delicious Reuben sandwich today for lunch!
