Bread Bowl Reuben Dip

Rose M. Helle


I found this recipe in a Food Network magazine and changed it a bit to suit my family's needs. The recipe called for Pastrami, I used Corned Beef and my family and friends really loved it. Feeds a crowd and the men seem to love it.

How to Make Bread Bowl Reuben Dip


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees,
    Whisk the mayonnaise, ketchup and pickle in a large bowl until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, cream cheese and corned beef to the mayonnaise mixture, stir with a rubber spatula until combined.
  3. Using a small serrated knife, hollow out the bread loaf leaving a 1/2-inch thick shell; reserve the cut-out bread. With the large cut out top, I sliced pieces big enough for individual use. Transfer the loaf to a baking sheet and fill the bowl with the dip. All of the sliced bread and pieces pulled out go on another baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake the bread bowl until the cheese melts and the top is a golden brown, about 30 minutes. Add the other baking sheet with the bread slices and innards to the oven during the last 10 minutes.
    Serve with toasted bread and crackers and/or crudites.
