    Somewhat time-consuming, but worth it. We really enjoyed it. Five stars.  -  07 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made half the recipe in 8x12 glass dish (plenty). Boiled the noodles first (drained well). Used leftover corned beef (diced). Used more milk so saucier and added a little horseradish to sauce (less mustard). Tossed cubed rye bread with melted butter and put on top. Baked at 350 for 25 mins and voila! Perfect! We loved it.  -  19 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! I'm not the big fan of Reuben sandwiches--my boyfriend is. But, even I really liked this! I toasted some rye bread for croutons while the oven was preheating--I didn't even crush them into crumbs. Also, I didn't rinse the sauerkraut--I wanted a stronger taste. THIS IS GREAT!  -  24 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
