How To Make Reuben Bake With Meatballs
Make The Meatballs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your cast-iron skillet bottom with olive oil or butter.
In a large mixing bowl, mix ground beef, sausage, nutritional flakes (or breadcrumbs), seasoning, eggs, tomato paste, and ketchup until combined (#1 and 2). Divide mixture into 22 to 24 meatballs and place in your ovenproof skillet (#3). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix thousand island, cream of mushroom soup, and caraway seeds together (#1). Remove from oven and sprinkle sauerkraut over meatballs (#2). Spread the soup mixture over the meatballs then top with cheese (#3 & 4). Place casserole back in the oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, approximately 15 minutes.
