I haven't been cooking much lately, but I decided it was time to try a few new recipes. I had torn out a recipe for Reuben Pie from a magazine quite some time ago. After reading it, I knew I would make a few adjustments of my own before trying it. It was a huge success at my house. We loved it!
The ingredients are fairly simple and affordable.
What I love about this was how quickly it went together.
1 1/3 cup crushed Triscuit Crackers (I used regular Triscuits, rye would be also be good)
1 T. flour
3 T. butter, melted
Combine and press into bottom of a 9" pie plate or tart pan. Bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
2-2 oz. packages deli style corned beef, sliced into strips
1/2 cup sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
1 cup half and half
1 T. flour
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
Remove crust from the oven and top with 1/2 of the cheese, the corned beef, sauerkraut and remaining cheese. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, cream, flour, mustard and salt and gently pour over the assembled "pie". Bake in a 375 oven for 30-35 minutes, until the top is brown and a knife inserted comes out clean. Slice into wedges and serve with fruit or a green salad.
Is there anything better than freshly grated Swiss cheese?
The finished pie is cheesey, chewy and very good. I also think I would like it with a little 1000 Island Dressing served on the side to drizzle over the top for that authentic Reuben Sandwich taste.
