Reuben Egg Roll Bowl Recipe

This Reuben Egg Roll Bowl is possibly my favorite Low Carb Recipe. This classic sandwich gets a low carb makeover by ditching the rye bread while keeping all the flavors you come to expect from this titan of the delicatessen. Reuben Egg Roll Bowls are quick, easy and fantastic for meal prep.

Reuben or a Rachel

Who doesn’t like a giant Reuben sandwich piled high with corned beef, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing. Heck I don’t even like rye bread that much but when combined with the flavors of the sandwich it just seems to work.

Since I’ve ditched the bread I’ve been missing my favorite classic sandwiches and began brainstorming on a recipe.

I love egg roll in a bowl recipes and make them for meal prep often so I decided that was the path I would take. The Reuben was a perfect candidate to transform into an Egg bowl bowl because it already has Sauerkraut.

If we want to get technical a Reuben topped with coleslaw instead of sauerkraut is known as a Rachel. Most people think that switching out the corned beef for turkey is a Rachel but I beg to differ.

Anyway you enjoy your Reuben or Rachel or Ross for that matter (Friends Joke) is fine by me.

Reuben Egg Roll Bowl is Made to Customize

I always hated snobby chefs that won't prepare dishes the way the customer wants it, its your food and you should have it the way you like it.

That being said don't complain when you order something strange and don't care for it. Chefs are very talented at combining flavors...thats kinda their job.

Adding toasted caraway seeds are the secret weapon to bring out the essence of the Reuben egg roll bowl. I swear that even though I don't normally like caraway seeds in dishes for some reason it truly works well in this one.

Alternasweets spicy low carb ketchup gives the dressing a subtle kick and tangy sweetness without all the added sugar. The sauerkraut provides a unique zip that brings the sauce together

I hope you find this keto creation as satisfying as I did. For those days when you just want something warm and comforting this dish can't be beat.

I like to have a portion when I make the recipe then pack up the rest in these glass reusable meal prep containers for easy grab and go meals.

It has that indulgent flavors that make you think you're cheating on keto. Don't worry, I swear this can be a healthy part of any low carb regiment.
