Whether you're glued to the 2021 Summer Olympics or gearing up for game day with friends, this savory Hot Reuben Dip is destined to become a new appetizer favorite. Based on the flavors of the famous deli sandwich, this dip is comfort food at its best. Simply mix cream cheese, sour cream, Thousand Island dressing, sauerkraut (*we love "Roasted Garlic Kraut" made by Cleveland Kraut in this recipe), Swiss cheese, and Stemple Creek corned beef in a large bowl. Pour into a lightly buttered oven proof dish and bake for 15-20 minutes. Viola! Serve with Triscuits or rye chips and watch it disappear. It's a guaranteed crowd pleaser you'll make again and again.
