Rueben Meatloaf

I double or triple this recipe and put into two rolls for the family.  If you love Rueben's this is a winner!!!


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/3 pound lean ground beef
  • 1-1/4 cups soft rye bread crumbs 
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I use 1000 Island dressing and cover all the ground beef well)
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 8 slices deli corned beef (about 2 ounces), divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided ( I use 1 1/2 c per roll)


  • In a small bowl, combine the egg, onion and milk. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Add bread crumbs; mix gently. On a piece of heavy-duty foil, pat beef mixture into an 8-in. x 6-in. rectangle.
  • Spread mustard over loaf to within 1 in. of edges. Layer with sauerkraut, six slices of corned beef and 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling foil away while rolling. Seal seam and ends.
  • Place meat loaf seam side down in a shallow 1-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Top with remaining corned beef and cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Using two large spatulas, carefully transfer meat loaf to a serving platter. Yield: 2 servings.
