Reuben Casserole


This Reuben casserole recipe has all the delicious elements of a Reuben sandwich with much less sodium and calories. Thinly sliced angel hair cabbage cooked with a splash of vinegar stands in for the sauerkraut, and lower-sodium deli turkey adds a rich, meaty flavor in place of the traditional corned beef.

6 servings


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 (10 ounce) package angel hair coleslaw mix or 5 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage

  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion

  • teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 ¼ cups shredded Swiss cheese

  • 2 tablespoons chopped kosher dill pickle

  • pound sliced reduced-sodium deli turkey, coarsely chopped

  • cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons no-salt-added ketchup

  • 3 slices seeded rye bread, torn into pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart (7-by-11-inch) baking dish with cooking spray. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, onion and salt; cook, stirring often, until the cabbage wilts and the cabbage and onion begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar and remove from heat. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.

  2. Sprinkle one-third of the cheese evenly over the cabbage mixture; sprinkle with pickle, then turkey, then another third of the cheese. Stir together mayonnaise and ketchup in a small bowl; spread over the top cheese layer. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

  3. Pulse bread in a food processor until coarse breadcrumbs form. Toss the breadcrumbs and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a small bowl; sprinkle over the top cheese layer.

  4. Bake the casserole until it's hot throughout, the cheese is melted and the breadcrumbs are light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve hot.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
