I had a few pounds of prepared corned beef left over from St. Patricks Day this year and we quickly got tired of the same old Hot Reuben Sandwich. We are loving this Reuben dip! Try it with chips, pretzels, or pumpernickel squares.


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 6 oz. corned beef, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 1/2 cup drained sauerkraut


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix together cream cheese, 1 cup of the Swiss cheese, Thousand Island and corned beef. Spread in a pie plate. Top with the sauerkraut and the remaining 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot with chips or bread of your choice.

Soak 1/4 cup bread crumbs in the milk. Cut off any excess fat from the edge of the corned beef and discard. Mash beef in a bowl with a fork, then add squeezed out bread crumbs, one egg, the cheese and lemon rind.

Most Corned Beef Hash recipes are loaded with fat and very little nutritional value. This is not only tasty when you make it, but even better the next day - that is if there is any left!


  • 1 lb. lean deli corned beef, diced -ask the person behind the counter to slice it into two 1/2 pound chunks, not slices
  • 3 or 4 red potatoes, diced - I leave the skin on for flavor and vitamins
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and diced - depending on how many you are feeding, you may need two or three
  • 1 sweet onion, diced - during Spring, I love the Vidialla sweet, otherwise I like to use a red or white onion
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • green onion


Place about 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of a large frying pan that has a lid. Place over medium heat

Add the potatoes and squash into the frying pan. Stir the squash and potatoes to cover with oil. Season with salt and pepper (be careful with the salt, as the corned beef can be salty). Add onion

Cover pan and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes and squash are at desired consistency. Add corned beef and gently heat. Taste for possible re-season

Serve with eggs. I also like to place some cheese over the hash before I place the eggs on top. Sprinkle with green onion.

This is the perfect way to use up leftover corned beef too. My husband and son love this.

  • 8 eggs poached

Combine corned beef with soup and onion. Heat ingredients thoroughly. Pour over slices of toast. Top with poached eggs. Sprinkle with paprika. Serves 8.

This is an easy pleaser. Boil potatoes, carrots and an onion until tender, add a can of corned beef and salt and pepper. Mash ingredients together, put butter on top and put in oven 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, cheap and filling.
