How to Make Reuben Dip
I’m always on the hunt for easy dip recipes that my guests will go crazy for and I found a favorite – crockpot reuben dip! This slow cooker appetizer is delicious and can be made for New Years Eve, Christmas, Thanksgiving, football game day, birthday parties, retirement parties, etc! The possibilities are endless. Make sure to try our crockpot cheeseburger dip, too.
This crockpot dip just requires a little prep and you just dump all the ingredients in the slow cooker and it does the work for you!
You can serve reuben dip in a crockpot and that will keep it warm for hours or you can put it in a separate dish and just microwave it periodically.
Best Crockpot Appetizer: Reuben Dip
- What size slow cooker should I use for this? I recommend a 4.5 qt or smaller size.
- How do I serve and reheat reuben dip? You can remove the dip from the crockpot to serve in a separate dish. The dip can be reheated in a microwave safe container.
- A traditional reuben sandwich has rye bread, swiss cheese, Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and corned beef. You can substitute Russian dressing for Thousand Island. Russian dressing is a little bit spicier, and thousand island is a little bit sweeter.
- Where do I find corned beef to use? Corned beef can typically be found at the deli counter in the grocery store.
- What goes well with Reuben Dip? Toasted rye bread, crackers, cucumbers, carrots, and celery.
Crockpot Reuben Dip
- 1 8 ounce package plain cream cheese, softened
- ½ pound sliced corned beef chopped (about 1 ¼ cups, chopped)
- 1 ¼ cups swiss cheese freshly grated
- ¼ thousand island dressing
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup sauerkraut drained
- Parsley chopped
- Toasted bread crackers, cucumbers, carrots, or celery
- In a crock pot, add all ingredients and stir. Cover and cook on high for 1 ½ to 2 hours, stirring about every half hour until all the cheese has melted.
- Stir to combine all ingredients, turn heat off, and garnish with parsley. Serve hot with your favorite bread, crackers or veggies!
- This can be refrigerated and reheated the next day. Place your reuben dip in a microwave safe container and reheat in 30 second increments, taking out to stir each time.
- Be sure to drain the sauerkraut really well so that the dip doesn’t end up having too much liquid in it. If you love sauerkraut, try adding more to taste.
