Reuben Loaf


So everyone has a little extra Corned Beef left over after St. Patrick’s Day, but I tend to make it 4 or 5 times a year because it’s just so damned good.
When you make it that often, you tend to have a lot of opportunities to do something special afterward.  Here’s one of my favorites…

Use These…
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • 1/3 cup Thousand Island salad dressing
  • 12 oz corned beef, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz Swiss cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp caraway or anise seeds (optional)

Do This…

  • Stir in water and mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Add the remaining flour as needed until the dough is firm, but still a bit sticky.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.  Keep your hands and counter coated in flour to stop the dough from sticking.

  • Roll dough into a 14- x 10-inch rectangle on a lightly greased baking sheet.

  • Alternating slices, fold the strips at an angle across filling in a braid.

  • While waiting for the loaf to rise, pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
