Easy and great way to use up leftover corned beef!



Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


  • 3 slices Rye Bread, sliced 1-inch thick (seeded or plain)

Step 2

Coat an 8x8-inch casserole dish with cooking spray. Cut three pieces of the rye bread into 1-inch cubes and line the bottom of the dish with them.


  • 16 ounces Sauerkraut, jarred preferred

Step 3

Place sauerkraut into a colander and allow to drain, pressing it to get most of the moisture out.


  • 34 pound Corned Beef, cooked and chopped (can substitute thin sliced deli corned beef)
  • 34 pound Swiss Cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Caraway Seed

Step 4

Place HALF of the corned beef over the cubed bread and lightly press down the layers as you go. Spread ALL of the drained sauerkraut evenly over the corned beef and then top with HALF of the shredded cheese. Evenly sprinkle the cheese with the caraway seeds. Evenly spread the remaining corned beef over the previous layers and finish with the remaining cheese.


  • 3 Eggs
  • 12 cup Milk, reduced fat works fine
  • 14 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Bottled Thousand Island Dressing, lite is fine
  • 13 cup Yellow Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper

Step 5

In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cream, Thousand Island dressing, mustard & ground pepper until fully mixed. Pour the egg mixture over the casserole and allow it to sit and sink in for 10 minutes. Note: If your layers are packed too tightly you may have to poke all over with a knife to coax the dressing to go all the way to the bottom.


  • 2 slices Rye Bread, sliced 1-inch thick (seeded or plain)

Step 6

Place 2 slices of rye bread into food processor and pulse until you have coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over top of the casserole.

Step 7

Bake for 60 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the casserole is set in the middle. Note: Check the casserole after 45 minutes and if the bread crumbs are beginning to get too dark, lightly tent the casserole with aluminum foil during the last 15 minutes of cooking.

Step 8

Once the casserole is fully cooked, remove from the oven and allow it to rest for 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
