The food, the beer, and the whole atmosphere makes people happy and brings friends together.

Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Right?

Authentic Irish Food

Some say traditional Irish food is a bit bland, but Irish-Americans have really taken to the St. Patrick’s day celebration as an excuse to go wild with Irish-inspired culinary creativity.

We have shared some traditional Irish dishes like Potato Pancakes, Dublin Coddle, and North Ireland Soda Bread. And, of course, you can’t forget the Irish-American St. Patrick’s Day classic, Corned Beef and Cabbage.

We’ve also shared some Irish and Irish-American inspired fusion dishes like Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls and Guinness Baked Beans.

Today, we have another serious fusion dish for you: Corned Beef Egg Rolls, also known as Reuben Egg Rolls.

We were first introduced to Reuben egg rolls at the Irish pub where we had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding. Tim’s parents planned a wonderful party, and everyone raved about the food, particularly the corned beef egg rolls.

One bite of the crispy and super flavorful corned beef appetizer, and Tim and I knew that we had to try making these at home.

Our Baked Reuben Egg Roll Recipe

True to our fashion, we wanted our Reuben egg rolls, but we didn’t want to mess with the mess of deep frying. We wanted them baked.

And, we decided this would be the perfect way to put our homemade wonton wrappers to a very good use.

Take a look at how easy these Reuben egg rolls are to put together!  

Reuben Egg Rolls: Don’t Forget The Sauce!

So, how did our baked egg rolls stack up?

Crispy on the outside with the perfect flavor of a Reuben sandwich from ample corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut in the filing.

In a word, they were fantastic!

Sure, you do trade in the more delicate, crispy, deep-fried crunch for a more firm crispness when baking these corned beef egg rolls.

But, cutting the deep fried calories and eliminating that frying hassle, means you don’t have to feel guilty about reaching for a second… or third.

And please, don’t forget to whip up some homemade Russian dressing! You have to have Russian dressing on a Rueben!

Can rolls be frozen before baking?

Hi Carol. Yes! We often make a big batch of these and freeze some for a quick appetizer later. Bake from frozen.
