  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix together the sauerkraut and thousand island salad dressing in a bowl until well combined. Unroll the crescent roll dough, and cut dough in half; place one half of the dough onto a floured work surface, and pinch the perforations of the dough closed to make 1 sheet. Roll the dough sheet out to about 12 inches square, and fit the dough into the prepared baking sheet. Pinch perforations closed on 2nd half of dough; roll out to about 9 inches square, and set aside.
  3. Prebake the dough crust in the baking dish in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and place 4 slices of cheese into the bottom of the crust; top cheese slices with the corned beef, and spread with the sauerkraut mixture. Lay 4 remaining slices of Swiss cheese on top of the sauerkraut mixture. Lay the 2nd sheet of crescent roll dough onto the filled baking sheet, and press the top crust down onto the edges of the dish to seal. Brush with beaten egg white.
  4. Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes; let stand about 5 minutes before slicing.

It wasn't horrible but I won't make it again. Much prefer a reuben the old fashioned way.

Recipe Group Selection: 01, February 2014 ~ A Reuben is my favorite sandwich, so I knew I had to make this recipe. Reading Christina's review, I decided to use 2 tubes of crescent rolls, to ma...

It was good. Somethings missing though. We will make it again and play around with some other flavors. Over all it was very tasty...and I don't even like Ruben's very much.

My husband and I loved this recipe. Our kids liked it too, after giving them extra thousand island dressing to dunk it in.

I have made this a few times and it is always a big hit. I usually buy my corned beef from Costco so one night I have corned beef and cabbage and use my left overs for this recipe the next day. ...

After reading all the reviews I only added one thing, some caraway seeds to the sauerkraut after draining it. And I hand sliced the cheese, I weighed it, so it didn't really cover all the area ...

This was tasty and easy. I added caraway seeds as pictured though I didn't see them mentioned in the recipe.

This recipe is a HOMERUN. Everyone ate this, including the picky ones. Made nearly according to the recipe, except: 1.) Forgot to grease the pan - made zero difference, it slid right out 2.) U...
