A little culinary nod to St. Patrick’s Day and the festivities with a recipe that includes potatoes, sauerkraut and corned beef – just not so traditional, a Latke Reuben. So simple to make, no need to make your own hash browns because Alexia Hash Browns (frozen foods) are wonderful!
We doubled the recipe because we were serving a larger group so we used two packages of the Alexia potatoes. First you will want to prepare the hashbrowns in two batches for both sides of the latke. Cook them following the directions on the back of the package in a skillet until slightly crisp as they will crisp up more later in the oven. For this recipe, you want to cook them on one side and then flip only once to cook the other side. Flip them as one piece or in sections, whichever you are most comfortable with. An easy way to flip whole is to place a plate upside down that fits entire pan or use the fry pan lid. Flip onto plate or lid and then slide the uncooked side back into the pan. Once the first half is done, slide onto a baking sheet. Then proceed to cook other half of hashbrowns.
While the hashbrowns are cooking, mix sauerkraut and sour cream together.
When the first half of hashbrowns are cooked and on the cookie sheet, top with the thin sliced corned beef. Spread the sauerkraut and sour cream mixture over the top. Then spread on the dressing of your choice and top with thin sliced Swiss cheese.
Once the second set of hashbrowns are cooked, slide them on top the other half of the prepared and topped hashbrowns on the baking sheet. Place baking sheet in the oven at 325 degrees until it is warmed through and the cheese has melted.
Remove from oven and enjoy! Serve with more dressing on the side if you prefer.
