Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add warm water, mustard and butter; stir well. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. On lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 10x15 rectangle. Layer corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut in the center third of the rectangle. Use a knife to make cuts from filling to dough edge, approximately 1 inches apart. Folds strips across bread, alternating sides. Cover loaf and let rise in a warm area for 45 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Brush risen loaf with beaten egg. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until golden brown.

We really enjoyed this at our home. Please don't judge, but I didn't have time to make dough. I had a Pillsbury french loaf that filled in nicely. Instead of mustard I made 1000 island dressing, (mayo, ketchup, and pickle relish). The possibilities are endless, ham and cheese, Philly cheese-steak, Italian meats w/marinara, turkey w/ bacon and Caesar dressing. . . The sky is the limit! Thank you, NEHCTERG, for the wonderful recipe.



What a delicious recipe! I used 1 Cup of rye flour and caraway seeds in the bread ingredients. I LOVE ruben sandwiches and this was no exception! It is a half-day project though and contains expensive ingredients. Sometimes you just gotta splurge, though!

i love to make bread! this stuff is a big hit at my house. we like corn beef brisket. when i make it the left overs are for this bread. the only thing i changed is, i mix a little thousand island dressing in with the sauerkrat and layer cornbeef, then sauerkrat and then cheese. if cheese on bottom it makes to soggy. great find! thanks lisa
