This Keto Rueben Dip is served surrounded by our famous Keto Dinner Rolls for an undoubtedly deliciously dippable dish!!!
This Keto Reuben Dip is my new favorite way to use my dinner roll recipe. Who am I kidding? It’s literally my new favorite everything. Reuben sandwiches weren’t something I ate on a regular basis before starting on my keto journey. I may have had a few over the years, but only on rare occasions. Then a few weeks ago I wanted needed a Reuben sandwich, so I decided to whip up a batch of my dinner rolls with a creamy and perfectly dippable Rueben-y center!
There are so many variations on the Rueben so I built this recipe around my ideal Rueben sandwich. I used corned beef, thousand island dressing, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut. Other variations include substituting pastrami, turkey, or Montreal-style smoked meat in place of corned beef. You could also go a more traditional route and use Russian Dressing in place of Thousand Island (recipe for Homemade Keto Russian Dressing, or store-bought keto-friendly Thousand Island). Another common variation involves swapping the sauerkraut for coleslaw. Personally I love the brininess of the kraut as it’s my favorite part of a Rueben.
The best part about the recipe is you can serve it right out of the skillet for any kind of get-together, then use the leftovers to whip up some Keto Rueben Sliders. Add a little more sauerkraut to reap the probiotic benefits, and bump up the crunch.
Are Probiotics Heat Sensitive:
Yes. For this recipe, the sauerkraut in the center bakes at 400°F so the healthy probiotic bacteria will be killed. Though some studies have shown even the heat-killed bacteria have health benefits. Mainly the heat-killed bacteria from probiotics have an anti-inflammatory effect rather than the gut nourishing effects we all know and love. So doubling up on the sauerkraut for the sliders is a win-win.
