Puff Pastry Reuben Roll Up


Reubens are one of my favorite sandwiches. What a unique way to make them using Puff Pastry, another favorite of mine. Everything is in there….corned beef, sauerkraut, Baby Swiss Cheese and Thousand Island Dressing all rolled up inside a delicious Puff Pastry. Can it get any better?

Rinse the sauerkraut really

good with cold water.



Using the back of a spoon, press all

of the water out of the sauerkraut.



Take one thawed Puff Pastry out of the box.



Open it up and lay it flat on

a lightly floured counter.



Using a rolling pin, roll the dough from

one short end toward the other short

end making the dough about 16” long.

Don’t roll it any wider.



Spread Thousand Island Dressing

all over the dough keeping it

about an inch from the edges. 



Sprinkle caraway seeds over the dressing.



Place the rinsed sauerkraut

evenly over the dressing.



Place the corned beef evenly

on top of the sauerkraut.



Top with the cheese.



Starting at the short end, roll the

pastry as tightly as you can

without tearing the dough.



Pinch both ends together

sealing the dough.



Spray a baking sheet with cooking oil.



Place the dough onto the pan.



In a small bowl whisk the egg with

1 Tbsp water making an egg wash.



Brush the egg wash over

the dough. You will only

use a little of the egg

wash then discard it.



Sprinkle a few caraway seeds on top.



Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for

30-35 minutes or until the top is brown.



Using a large spatula, carefully

place the loaf on a cooling rack.



Let cool for 15-20 minutes,

slice into pieces and serve.

    • You can see by the picture I added caraway seeds. That gave it the rye taste too. Next Time I will double the seeds I did this time. That is the only thing I will do different because it tasted wonderful.

  1. It’s ages since I bought some corned beef to cook. I’m going to the best farmers market later today, corned beef and sauerkraut are now in my shopping list. I’m definitely trying this, this weekend.

  2. It’s like 10 in the morning and my mouth is watering! I’m actually going to get up and go to the store. This is what influencers do for others, maybe you could dabble in the exercise field, I expand every time I try one of your recipes! Damn, this looks good! C
