Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Reuben Casserole)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday recipe post. I apologize for the hiatus last week while I was on vacation but I’m back now so let’s get to it. While we were on vacation we ate at this wonderful New York style deli where I had probably the most delicious Reuben sandwich I’ve ever had and it reminded me of today’s recipe for Reuben Casserole. If you’re a fan of Reuben sandwiches then this is definitely something you need to try. If you’re like me and don’t care for Rye bread you can substitute a sourdough or asiago cheese bread and this is just as wonderful. You can toast your bread any way you like, whether it’s in a toaster or in the oven in advance, but it’s very important that you do toast the bread or this will turn out soggy and while still flavorful it’s just not as good when it’s soggy. Alternatively you can put the untoasted, buttered or sprayed, bread cubes on top of the casserole (as in the picture) instead of the bottom and cook the casserole uncovered until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Give this recipe a try, especially if you’re a fan of Reuben sandwiches, and let me know in the comments what you thought. Be sure to check back Friday for another Gluten Free Friday recipe and don’t forget to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already.

Reuben Casserole

  • 6 slices Marble Rye Bread, cubed and toasted
