One dish to mix, cook and serve from:

In a 9 X 13 baking pan:

I large bag of sauerkraut rinsed and drained, spread on bottom of pan. ( snip a few holes in top of bag to rinse...snip a few holes in bottom of bag to drain)

On top of sauerkraut add a layer of 1 1/2 lbs of chipped or shaved deli corned beef.

On top of that pour one bottle of thousand island dressing.


cover that with 2-3 cups of shredded swiss cheese.

8 or 9 slices of good rye bread cut into cubes, can leave crust on or off. With seeds or without.

Melt 1/4 Cup of butter or margerine and pour over bread cubes and toss to lightly coat.
I do this in a ziploc bag so no cleanup.

cover top of casserole with bread cubes and press into place.

Bake 350 degrees for approx 1/2 hour or till toasted and golden.

Serve with salad for a light dinner.

Serves approx. 6 as a main dish.
