2 cups rye bread crumbs*
1/4 cup swiss, finely grated
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cup corned beef, cut into small pieces or shredded
1/2 cup sauerkraut, well squeezed dry
1 cup swiss, shredded
1 cup half and half
2 tablespoon russian or thousand islands dressing + more for serving
Step 1: Mix the rye bread crumbs, swiss and butter, press into the bottom of a pie plate, about 1/8 inch thick and bake in a preheated 450F/230C oven until the edges and bottom just start turning golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.
Step 2: Mix the corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss, eggs, half and half and dressing and pour into crust and bake in a preheated 375 oven until golden brown on top and set in the center, about 25-35 minutes.
Step 3: Note: Toast 5 slices of rye bread and then give them a quick whirl in a food processor to make the rye bread crumbs.
