We’re getting ready to watch some more great football this coming weekend – which of course, means some great food to go along with the game!

I’ve been admiring some hot Reuben Dip recipes on a few other blogs and mentioned the idea to my husband Jack a few weeks ago. Jack always likes to put his own original spin on recipes (as you probably know if you are a regular here at A Family Feast) – and this Reuben Dip is no exception!

Our bubbly, hot Reuben dip includes BOTH corned beef and black pastrami plus saukraut in a rich and creamy, cheesy sauce that is flavored with a fantastic blend of spices and seasonings including caraway seed – the perfect complement to the dip as well as the toasted pumpernickel bread that we use for dipping.

  8. Slice the marble slices into three or four strips each and lay out on a sheet pan (36 to 48 strips). Brush both sides with melted butter.
  9. Place bread strips and dip into oven and cook for 15 minutes. Remove bread, turn each piece and bake bread and dip an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Remove dip and bread strips and if necessary, place dip under broiler to brown top. Serve hot dip with the marble rye or pumpernickel crisps.

    Reuben dip is new for me. I’m a guy, so I go on Pinterest occasionally, but not a ton either. I love a good Reuben sandwich and think this would be a great go-to for the game day menu!
