Reubens become party food with these delicious Reuben Fritters with a Thousand Island Dipping Sauce. The base is mashed potatoes with chopped corned beef, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut added in. They’re formed into balls, coated in Panko crumbs, and fried until golden.

Anything tastes good deep-fried right?

Especially when dipped in sauce.

Reuben sandwiches are my favorite. I love the tang of the sauerkraut, the gooey swiss cheese mixed with the sweetness of a Thousand Island dressing or Russian Dressing. Besides a traditional Reuben sandwich, there are all kinds of ways you can enjoy the flavors of a Reuben including Reuben Dip and Reuben Crescent Rolls.

This is a great recipe to make when you have leftover mashed potatoes or you made Reuben sandwiches and just have a little of each ingredient left.
