Modern Irish comfort food. That’s what I’m calling this Reuben and Guinness Mac and Cheese. Pieces of thick cut corned beef and sauerkraut are stirred into a rich and gooey macaroni and cheese made with both cheddar and Swiss cheese and spiked with Guinness Beer before being drizzled with homemade thousand island dressing.

I know, I know. Another reuben inspired recipe. A few weeks ago I shared my Chicken Reuben Sheet Pan Nachos which are perfect for March Madness games beginning this week. And before that was my Reuben Waffle Fries, also game day ready! Or if you’re more of a traditional type, you really can’t go wrong with my Best Reuben Casserole. I promise though, I’ve saved the best for last. AND this Reuben and Guinness Mac and Cheese can use up any leftover corned beef you might have this weekend.
The list of reasons to give this recipe a try is quite lengthy. Not only does it feed a crowd, but it can truly be a one pot meal. Less dishes to wash? That truly elevates an amazing recipe to out of this world in my opinion! This American Kitchen Cookware 12″ Premium Stainless Steel Saute Pan is a new addition to my kitchen but a true workhouse that’s getting quite the workout. Being able to feed a family of six from a single pan that goes from cooktop to oven in the blink of an eye? INCREDIBLE.
This former Wisconsin girl loves knowing that all of American Kitchen’s cookware is handcrafted in small batches in their West Bend, Wisconsin factory. True to their name, AMERICAN Kitchen. Every piece of cookware that leaves their factor is created with the highest grade of responsibly sourced stainless steel and aluminum available. This is definitely the reason behind each piece’s unreal performance. Because American Kitchen is committed to the highest manufacturing standards, every product they sell includes a lifetime warranty. I love companies that stand behind their products no matter what!
Back to this luscious Reuben and Guinness Mac and Cheese… It’s your favorite St. Patrick’s Day inspired sandwich and beer combination. It also happens to be a new spin on my Bacon Crusted Beer Mac and Cheese that so many of you have loved! Pieces of thick cut corned beef and sauerkraut are stirred into a rich and gooey macaroni and cheese made with both cheddar and Swiss cheese and spiked with Guinness Beer before being drizzled with homemade thousand island dressing. I’m calling it modern Irish comfort food. You’ll call it delicious!
If you have leftover corned beef, this would be the perfect way to use it. Instead of deli meat, I actually had some corned beef I had made for a previous recipe that I had cooked in the slow cooker. I think I loved the use of the leftover corned beef better than the original recipe!
My friends at American Kitchen Cookware are just as anxious for you to try this Reuben and Guinness Mac and Cheese as I am and are generously giving away not one, but TWO of their amazing saute pans to two lucky Melanie Makes readers. Please see the giveaway widget below to enter. Good luck!
