This my take on the classic 'reuben casserole,' which I love. Try it and add your own variation, depending on your tastes. Different meats, cheeses, breads, or dressings would make for a variety of tastes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Spread the bread cubes into a shallow pan and let the bread sit until the cut surfaces are somewhat dried with the insides remaining soft, 2 to 3 hours.

    Advertisement
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.

  • Put bread cubes into a large bowl. Pour honey mustard over the bread and mix to coat. Layer about half the bread cubes into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 2/3 cup Swiss cheese over the bread cubes; top with 1 cup ham. Spread relish in a layer over everything. Layer remaining ham, 2/3 cup Swiss cheese, and remaining bread cubes, respectively, atop the relish layer. Finish by topping with the remaining Swiss cheese. Cover entire dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in preheated oven until hot in the center, about 30 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before cutting to serve.

Cook's Note:

I cut my bread frozen, then place in a shallow pan in the oven to thaw and dry out the cubes. The cube should be dry on the outside, soft on the inside, but not crouton-dry. This allows the dressing to soak into the cube and hold it in during baking.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

For some reason this recipe intrigued me so I gave it a whirl. Can't say I didn't like it but not loving it either. I used what I had on hand and combined with half pumpernickel and half sourdough. Didn't have the store bought honey mustard on hand so I made my own which actually turned out really good! Other than that followed the recipe. Have to say Jenn that I enjoyed trying out your recipe.

Wasn't quite sure what to expect with this it's an unusual combination of ingredients. It has no canned soup (rarity for casseroles like this and I loved that) and my concern was that it would be dry. The bread cubes are coated with honey mustard and I think that's what keeps it moist. I had no swiss so used a combination of muenster and cheddar which worked well. I didn't have enough time to let the bread cubes dry out for several hours so I put them into a 250 degree oven to dry out a bit. When I took off the foil I put the casserole back into the oven for about 5 minutes to allow the bread cubes to brown a little. The only thing that I will do differently in the future is cut back on the sweet relish. The combination of the honey mustard and the sweet relish made this a little too sweet for us (personal taste preference). I used a ham steak for this recipe but keep this recipe in mind when you're trying to use up some leftover Holiday ham. Thanks Jenn Brown we enjoyed your casserole! Read More

I stuck to this recipe as written for a first try, with 2 small changes. I used a bit more ham, as that was what I had leftover. I also uncovered the casserole and added more cheese on top for a few extra minutes in the oven. This did have a flavor reminiscent of a Reuben sandwich. I would think that using dill pickle relish vs sweet relish as called for is important to capturing the correct flavor. I was a little concerned that the honey mustard might be too sweet, but it was fine. When I make it again, I may switch to a sweet-hot mustard, just because I like a little bite. Overall though, this was a pretty good recipe and a tasty way to use up leftover ham. Read More
