How to Make Reuben Spuds


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a 9” x 13” shallow baking pan with nonstick spray coating.
  2. Pierce the skin of each potato in several places with fork tines. Place potatoes in a preheated oven, directly on the rack, and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. To test for doneness, insert a knife in the potato’s center to test for softness, or squeeze gently with a mitted hand until you feel it “give” slightly.
  3. Cut the baked potatoes in half lengthwise. Place the potato halves split-side up in prepared baking pan. Spread each hot half evenly with dressing. Top potato with corned beef and sauerkraut. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds. Layer on cheese slices.
  4. Return to hot oven. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese melts and sauerkraut is heated through.
  5. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of the remaining caraway seeds.
