How to make low-carb corned beef Reuben casserole

Print this recipe
My dad is 82 years old, and he’ll eat pretty much anything you put in front of him. But his favorite food, bar none, is a messy Reuben sandwich, piled high with corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese and dripping with Russian dressing — all on fresh-baked rye bread. At his age, I feel like he is entitled to indulge in his favorite meal as often as he likes. The recipe below has become my go-to for when he comes for dinner. He gets a side of rye bread that he can pile as high as he likes, and the rest of us get to enjoy all the flavors of an old-school Reuben without all the carbs.
If you can find a bottled Russian dressing that doesn’t have sugar in it, by all means, go ahead and use that. I’ve only been able to find sugar-free Thousand Island dressing, though, so I just jazz it up with horseradish, hot pepper sauce, and dill pickle relish. For an old-school, Jewish deli touch, serve with spears of crisp dill pickles on the side.
