Hot Reuben Dip

Hot Reuben Dip

There are hardly words to describe how insanely good Hot Reuben Dip is! Creamy, cheesy, warm comforting deliciousness – and it’s easy!


  • 4 ounces (1/2 of an 8-ounce package) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 small can sauerkraut, about a cup, well drained
  • 8 ounces Swiss cheese, small dice (see note)
  • 4 ounces, about a cup, of diced or shredded corned beef
  • thinly sliced chives for garnish, optional
  • crackers, rye crisps or toasted rye bread for serving


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Preferably using a mixer, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ketchup. By hand stir in the relish, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and corned beef. Taste and adjust, adding more ketchup and/or relish if desired. Place in a shallow ovenproof casserole and bake 15 to 20 minutes until the top is starting to brown, the dip is bubbling around the edges and cheese is melted.

Garnish with chives if desired, serve warm with preferred dippers.


  • Thousand Island Dressing may be substituted for the mayonnaise, ketchup and pickle relish.
  • Making some of the dice very small so it melts into the dip and some in a dice a bit larger, like a 1/2″ will give you a very creamy dip with pockets of hot, melty cheese throughout.
  • For a quick version, microwave on high for three minutes, stirring halfway through. Check to see if the cheese is melted and if not give it a little additional time.
