This casserole is so rich and creamy, it has all of the flavors of a Reuben sandwich, in a baked noodle casserole!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Frank’s Kraut.  The opinions and text are all mine.

So, tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day.  Are you making a traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage Meal?  We will be enjoying ours! It’s something we all look forward to every year.

I have learned to make a large amount, especially if I want to have any leftovers for Reuben sandwiches, or to make the corned beef into some yummy “up-cycled”  Reuben recipes, like this Cream of Reuben Soup or this casserole!

Left over corned beef baked into a creamy noodle casserole your whole family will enjoy!

Frank's Kraut

Frank’s Kraut is the ONLY sauerkraut I buy.  I was raised on this stuff.  It’s so delicious and SO GOOD for you, too!

March is National Reuben Month.  If you are following along with me, you got a great appetizer recipe for Reuben Pinwheels last week.  I love hot appetizers like this one, or this Hot Reuben Dip that I made last year!  They are always crowd pleasers, and a great alternative to run-of-the-mill cold dips and chips.

I have had a relationship with Frank’s for almost a year now.  I love getting the chance to develop new recipes for them.  This Reuben Burger was where it all started!

My favorite way to purchase Frank’s Kraut is in these, super convenient, one pound poly bags.  It’s always so fresh, I use what I need and then I store the rest in a mason jar in my fridge.

Then you top them with bread crumbs you make yourself, from a couple pieces of Rye or Pumpernickel bread.

    1. Oops! Typo in my part. Just stir it into the soup mixture 🙂 I have made it with and without the dressing.

    2. I figured it got mixed with everything else. Made it last night and my family loved it. So creamy and cheesy, I am sure I would not have noticed if the dressing was missing

  1. The nursing home I work for actually started serving this and I liked it so much I asked for the recipe! Made it for the first time myself tonight and my husband loved it too. It’ll definitely be added to our weeknight dinner rotation.

  2. Hey Michaela,

    On Pinterest, the picture associated with this recipe says it’s a Weight Watcher recipe. (Let me know and I’ll send you a copy of the pic if you don’t have it.) If you have control of your front picture, you should change it so it’s not confusing to those of us who are looking for lower-calorie recipes.


    1. I am aware that this is the case. I didn’t pin the original pin and have no clue who did. So there is nothing that I can do about it. Maybe try to google the recipe? Sorry, I can’t help!

  3. If it helps, Reuben casserole on WW is 13 points for a cup :(. It’s in the oven now, but I’m now realizing not WW. I, too, was mislead. I should have read into it further, but I’m still a little miffed.

    1. So to clear things up — I am not the one that linked a WW recipe to my site. Someone made the error on Pinterest, and since it isn’t my pin there is nothing that I can do about it. I am sorry that you were inconvenienced.

  4. Look delicious! Something I’d definitely make!
    And it is obvious that it isn’t a Weight Watcher meal. It’s always good to read the ingredients first. If you are on WW you will know that pasta, cheese, butter and canned soup will push those points up.
