Reuben Roll Ups

These reuben roll ups are simple to make and very tasty. You can use crescent rolls from a package or making them on the day you are baking buns and have dough available. These roll ups are good dipped in thousand island dressing. If you don't have the dressing in your fridge it's simple to prepare.
Adapted slightly from the recipe found here.
  • 1 package, crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup thousand island dressing
  • 8 slices corned beef
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup sauerkraut, drained and lightly squeezed dry
  1. Unroll and divide crescent rolls.
  2. On each roll spread 1 tablespoon of dressing, 1 slice of corned beef, 1/2 slice of cheese and 2 tablespoons sauerkraut.
  3. Roll up like a butterhorn starting from the wide end.
  4. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 20 minutes or golden in color.
  6. *Use any leftover thousand island dressing for dipping the roll ups in.
Homemade dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 - 4 dashes of sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hot dog relish
  1. Whisk together ingredients until combined. 
  2. Store in fridge until ready to use.
  3. Yield: 8 roll ups


  1. Oh yes - one of our favourite sandwiches. Great idea to use crescent rolls for this. We always use dijon mustard instead of 1,000 Island dressing - will have to try that sometime.

    1. Rosella, I will have to try dijon mustard. I know I'd love it!๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Well I've bot most ingredients handy. I've got some shaved ham so I'll give that a whirl and see how it works.

  3. I'm saving this idea for our take along for our cottage get together this summer!

    1. I hope you all love them as much as we did!
