Prep Time 15 min Total Time 45 min Servings 8
Ingredients
4 cups water
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 pouches (4.7 oz each) Betty Crocker™ roasted garlic mashed potatoes
1 package (6 ounces) sliced corned beef, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) sauerkraut , rinsed well and drained
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (8 ounces)
4 teaspoons caraway seed, if desired
Thousand Island Dressing, if desired
Directions
Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease or spray 2 1/2-qt baking dish.
Heat water and butter to rapid boil in 3-quart saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in milk and mustard. Stir in 2 pouches potatoes just until moistened. Let stand about 1 minute or until liquid is absorbed. Whip with fork until smooth.
Spread about 3 cups of the potatoes in baking dish. Top with corned beef. Spread sauerkraut over corned beef and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons caraway seed, if desired. Spoon remaining potatoes over top; spread gently. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese and remaining caraway seed.
Bake uncovered about 20 minutes or until cheese is light golden brown.
History isn’t clear as to how the Reuben sandwich got its name. One source says the sandwich was named in 1914 for the owner of New York’s once-famous Reuben’s delicatessen. But some say Reuben Kay, a wholesale grocer from Omaha, named the sandwich in 1955. Any kind of mustard can be used in this dish. Varieties to try include stone-ground, Dijon, spicy, sweet-hot and honey mustard.

HAMBURGER GRAVY AND MASHED “POTATOES”
For those who love meat and potatoes, but are watching what they eat, here is a low carb meal the whole family will enjoy!
Hamburger Gravy and Mashed Potatoes1 pound ground beef
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoon onion, chopped
3 ounces mushrooms, minced, about 8 small
1/2 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 bags frozen cauliflower, 24 ounces
1/2-1 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional*
Brown the hamburger, celery and onion in a large skillet; drain the fat. Add the minced mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms are tender. Add the broth and cream; bring to a boil. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half and thickens. Season to taste. Meanwhile, cook the cauliflower until very tender, about 8 minutes; drain well. Mash and add some butter; season to taste. Serve the meat sauce over the cauliflower or just mix it all together.
Makes 5 servings
* You can thicken the gravy with xanthan gum rather than reduce it until thick. The end result will be nice and saucy. After stirring in the broth and cream, bring it to a boil, then sprinkle lightly with some of the xanthan gum, about 1/2 teaspoon at a time, and quickly stir in. Repeat until all of xanthan is mixed in. Let simmer a few minutes to thicken. Season and continue with the recipe as directed above.
