My Superhero family

What happens when you bring Spider Girl, Captain American and Ironman together…you have my Superhero family!!  Our family really enjoys Halloween.  My husband has always been big on the whole family being dressed up and sharing in the experience together.  Yesterday was no different.  We enjoyed time with some awesome family friends while watching the kids make their way around the neighborhood collecting their spoils.

Today I shared a wonderful covered dish lunch with some very sweet ladies from my church.  We love Reuben sandwiches and casseroles in this house, so I wanted to put a little twist on a traditional sandwich and try an appetizer version.  Here is what I came up with.
Reuben Dip

32 oz sauerkraut rinsed and well drained
12 oz sliced deli corned beef chopped
10 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
10 oz Swiss cheese, shredded
1 cup
1/2 cup Russian salad dressing (or Thousand Island)

In a bowl mix all ingredients together, place in a 9×13 baking dish coated with Pam or Olive Oil.  Bake on 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

I used Boar’s Head products for the deli meats and cheeses.  More expensive but the quality is worth it and no added nitrates / nitrites.

I served mine with chips or you could use any variety of crackers.  I brought the leftovers home to my husband and lets just say their are no more leftovers 🙂
