Every year, I make a new recipe for St. Patricks Day. It’s a special day around the Southern Soul house not just because we’ve got a wee bit of the Irish in us but also because it’s Mr. SS birthday.
Well, it’s time to buckle up! This year I’ve brought my A-game. This hot dip, made with all the mouthwatering flavors of a Reuben sandwich is over the top delicious!
It’s hot, cheesy, meaty and made with only 6 ingredients. If those three things don’t get you going then how about this…it can be made in the slow cooker or baked in the oven. All it takes is a bit of chopping, shredding, mixing and cooking. How’s that for the perfect dip?
What Goes Into Crock Pot Reuben Dip?
Full disclosure, this is one rich and flavor-packed dip. Each ingredient is loaded with flavor on its own and then when they’re mixed together, you’ve got something that’s so special. Even those “I hate sauerkraut” people, like my sweet hubby, love this dip!
- Cream Cheese
- Deli Corned Beef
- Thousand Island Dressing
- Swiss Cheese
Whenever I get a Reuben sandwich at my favorite deli, I always ask for extra Thousand Island dressing. It gives just the right amount of sweetness along with a bit of tang.
For this dip, you could buy some bottled dressing but since it’s so easy to make with pantry ingredients, I highly encourage you to make it yourself. Here’s my recipe for Classic Thousand Island Dressing. It’s great in this recipe, is delicious drizzled over fresh greens and makes a yummy dip.
Tips For Easy Crock-Pot Reuben Dip
- To make the homemade Thousand Island dressing, mix together ketchup, mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, and a dash of hot sauce.
- If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can still make this recipe on the stove or in the oven. Just cook the ingredients over low heat until they are melted and well combined.
- This recipe is perfect for weeknight dinners or for St. Patrick’s Day as it is comfort food that can be prepared in advance.
