If you like Reuben sandwiches, this creamy Corned Beef Dip is just the dip for you.
Some of the best recipes come from family friends, this dip is the perfect example. I slightly modified this recipe from a family friend (Thanks, Carrie) and can assure you it’s one of the best out there. There are many dip recipes out there, but none quite like this one. Cheesy, creamy, and topped with a nutty crust! Each bite leaves you wanting more.

Corned beef is salt-cured brisket of beef. Salt-cured meat is the method of treating the meat. Corned beef is treated with large-grained rock salt, also called “corns” of salt hence the name corned beef.

Corned beef is sold in can form as well as vacuum sealed packs. The cans can usually be found with other canned meats. The vacuum sealed packs are usually located near the refrigerated lunch meats or hotdogs.

This dip is best made baked in the oven. Although I have not tried this cooking method, this dip could probably be made in a crock pot as well.

Other ways to enjoy corned beef:
Corned beef is popular on Reuben sandwiches with marbled rye bread, but is also popular to eat on New Year’s Day with potatoes and cabbage. It’s said to bring good luck. It’s also very common to eat with eggs on St. Patrick’s Day! I think I prefer dip form best! 😉
