Reuben Biscuits

A Reuben sandwich is a masterpiece of culinary mash-ups. Salty Irish corned beef and crunchy German sauerkraut stacked on toasted Jewish rye oozing with melted Swiss cheese and tangy Russian dressing. So delicious but - oh my - so messy! I always end up with sauerkraut brine running down my arm. So for those occasions (think brunches and bridal showers) when you want to serve the unbeatable Reuben combination in a more manageable package, I created Reuben Sandwich Biscuits. A mimosa in one hand and a Reuben Biscuit in the other - your guests won't ever want to leave.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped corned beef or diced ham
  • 1/3 cup well-drained Bubbies Sauerkraut
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp cream to brush on tops of biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  4. Cut butter into flour using a pastry cutter or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Mix in cheese, meat, and sauerkraut until evenly distributed.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together sour cream and milk and stir into dough.
  7. Note that dough will be sticky.
  8. Drop dough by 1/4-cupfuls onto prepared baking sheet, keeping biscuits about 1 inch apart.
  9. You can also press dough into a large round about 1 inch thick and use a 3-inch biscuit cutter to make evenly round biscuits.
  10. Brush biscuits with cream.
  11. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes, until golden brown.
