Reuben Potatoes have all the flavor of the classic Reuben Sandwich in a twice baked potato. Chopped corned beef, sauerkraut, Thousand Island Dressing, and swiss cheese are mixed into the filling for a hearty and delicious one dish meal that’s super easy to make and economical too.
A Reuben Sandwich is my absolute favorite sandwich and I love making variations of it like these Spicy Reubens, Reuben Fritters, and Reuben Soup. To me a reuben is the ultimate combination of flavors.
Twice Baked Potatoes are another of my favorite foods. They make such an economical meal.
Feel free to alter the ingredient amounts to suit your tastes. Really like sauerkraut? Add more. If it’s not your favorite part of a Reuben, add a little bit less.
Likewise, you can add more corned beef. In addition to the Reuben ingredients, the potato insides are also mixed with butter and sour cream to make them rich and creamy.
Tips For Making This Reuben Potatoes Recipe:
Either Thousand Island or Russian Dressing can be used, store-bought or homemade. I like to mix the dressing into the filling mixture and then drizzle more on top of the potatoes. It’s my favorite part!
Reuben Potatoes are an excellent way to use up leftover St. Patrick’s Day corned beef! If you don’t have leftovers, just use deli-sliced corned beef.
The potatoes can be stuffed ahead of time and refrigerated until you are ready to bake them.
If you’re not a huge fan of swiss cheese, try using mozzarella or cheddar jack.
