This Reuben Potato Skins Recipe was inspired by Irish 31 Pub House and Eatery in West Chase, Florida. We discovered this town on our way to Tampa and couldn’t resist walking around the few blocks of restaurants. We decided to copycat two recipes from this restaurant. The other was their shepherd’s pie. These reuben’s are more of a high fat recipe than a high protein recipe and it’s low in carbs. If you’re looking for a reuben sandwich recipe, consider these potato skins instead.
Reuben Potato Skins Recipe Is A Great Lunch Idea
It was easy to make these potato skins and place in containers for a few lunches. I just allowed them to cool down a bit and placed two in each container. Include a side of the Thousand Island Dressing. At lunch, warm up the potato skins and drizzle with the dressing.
How To Make Reuben Potato Skins
To create this Rueben Potato Skins Recipe, I prepped the potatoes as you would for any potato skins recipe. To speed up the process, I microwaved the potatoes for seven minutes first. Then, I drizzled them with olive oil and baked them for another thirty minutes. Next, I cut the potatoes in half and scooped out some of the potatoes.
With the potato skins ready, I moved on to preparing the corned beef and sauerkraut. I ripped up the corned beef and tossed into a pan with high heat. After adding the sauerkraut, I sprinkled with onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. I cooked in the pan and mixed frequently until they were warmed up and slightly brown.
With the potato skins lined up in a baking pan, I scooped the mixture into each potato skin until it was all distributed. I placed Swiss cheese on the top of each potato. I placed in the oven and baked until the cheese melted through.
