Sweet potato fries topped with plenty of freshly chopped corned beef, melty Swiss Cheese sauce and tangy sauerkraut!

Typically, you enjoy the sandwich with a side of fries - why not combine the two for a tongue-teasing easy main dish?!


For the Reuben Fry Basket

  • 2-3 lb. Corned beef brisket
  • 1 bag (20 oz.) Alexia Sweet Potato Fries with Sea Salt
  • Swiss Cheese Sauce (see recipe below)

For the Swiss Cheese Sauce

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Swiss cheese


To prepare the corned beef:

  1. Place corned beef in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Add the contents of the seasoning packet if desired. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover with lid. Cook 2-3 hours or until the corned beef is fork tender.
  2. Once the corned beef is cooked, remove from pan to cutting board. Chop into small pieces. Set aside and keep warm.

After the corned beef is cooked:

Prepare Alexia Sweet Potato Fries with Sea Salt according to package directions. Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir until blended. Gradually add milk and cook stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in cheese and heat until cheese melts and sauce is smooth. Set aside.
