Reuben Wonton Cupcakes

Reuben Wonton Cupcakes

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for a Reuben Wonton Cupcakes recipe over the years, and I’m happy to finally deliver. I don’t order Reubens out a lot because I’m not a huge sauerkraut fan, but the nice thing about making these at home is that I could go light on the kraut, just how I like it. It seems like everyone wants their Reuben a little different anyway. My husband ate these dipped in extra Thousand Island dressing, and I’m sure some of you will want to top yours with extra sauerkraut. The best part is that you can edit the ratios to fit your preferences, but however you tweak it you’ll be getting all the Reuben flavors you love (corned beef, nutty Swiss cheese, creamy Thousand Island dressing and tangy sauerkraut) layered into these wonton cups for just 113 calories or 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints each on the myWW Green, Blue and Purple plans!

Reuben Wonton Cupcakes

All the Reuben flavors you love (corned beef, nutty Swiss cheese, creamy Thousand Island dressing and tangy sauerkraut) layered into crispy wonton cups!


  • 12 oz deli sliced corned beef, diced (I used Wegmans 97% fat free)
  • 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese Wedges, chopped
  • 1/3 cup light Thousand Island dressing, I used Kraft
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • ¼ cup sauerkraut
  • 6 slices 2% Swiss Cheese, each cut into 4 equal pieces


  • Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 12 cups in a standard muffin/cupcake tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine the corned beef and chopped cheese wedges and stir together. Place the bowl in the microwave and heat on high for 1 ½ minutes until contents are warm. Use a spoon to mix contents and smush the cheese wedges until they’ve coated the meat. Mix in the Thousand Island dressing.
  • Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Using about half of the corned beef mixture, spoon evenly into the wonton wrappers. Spread a teaspoon of sauerkraut over the meat and place one of the 2% Swiss pieces on top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining corned beef mixture and 2% Swiss cheese (if you like a lot of sauerkraut, feel free to add a second layer of that as well).
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes until the wontons are golden brown and the contents are heated through.

  1. Can you please check your instructions….it says to add 1/2 of the corned beef mixture to the muffin cup….does this only make 1 cupcake? Maybe it should be add 1/2 T? Thanks, I can’t wait to make this!!

  2. Never mind….DUH!! I re-read it for the 3rd time and I see that you use 1/2 of the beef mixture to fill 12 cups. Sorry!! Running to store now to buy the ingredients!

  3. I seriously love you right now! Can’t wait to try these.

  4. When I checked your website just now and saw this recipe, I almost jumped out of the chair. 🙂 I am so excited to make these this weekend. I posted a couple of months back in your comments for cordon bleu cupcakes how I was thinking about turning the reuben egg rolls my husband and I shared into cupcakes. You are my new favorite person for doing this!! 🙂 Thank you, once again, for making eating healthy and losing weight bearable. You haven’t disappointed yet.

    • Thanks Jamie!! What a sweet comment, I’m so happy I made just what you were looking for and I hope they live up to expectations! I appreciate your comment, let me know how you like them!

  5. Yay! Can’t wait to try these. I think one of the requests over the past year or so was mine. Thanks!

    • I hope you love them! Thanks for the suggestion and sorry it took me so long to get them on here! Haha

  6. We made these yesterday. They were nothing short of perfection!!! They were so easy to make and beyond delicious. Printing all other “cupcake” recipes as we speak. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!

  7. Any suggestions for what to use if I can’t find the Wegman’s? I’m fairly certain my grocery store doesn’t carry it.

    • Wegmans is my store brand! I would just go to the deli and ask for thinly sliced lean corned beef 🙂

  8. Oh, so incredibly excited. I just moved in with my bf who LOVES LOVES LOVES a reuben…..I LOVE LOVE LOVE your recipes, so this is PERFECT for both of us, can’t wait to try it!

  9. I think i will try these but i’ll add caraway seeds to get that rye flavor 🙂

  10. Can these be reheated? Just two of us will be having them for dinner, and I will likely have some left over for lunch the next day.

  11. Soooo good! Hoping they reheat well cause I have some leftover and can’t wait to have them again tomorrow!

  12. Do you use regular cupcake size wontons for your reuben cupcakes or the mini
    wontons? Thanks so much for posting conversion to SP.

    • I’ve only ever seen one size of wontons! If you’re asking about the size of my muffin tins I use the normal size, not mini.

  13. Made these last night! They were SO good and love that they’re low in points. I had a lot of points left at the end of the day, and was planning on only having a few, but between husband and I ate the whole pan 🙂 Really enjoyed them during the Packers game.

  14. Thank you for sharing this! I love making recipes that have sauerkraut in them. Sounds so good!

  15. Great recipe we’ve made it dozens of times. If you scoop an ample tablespoon of the corned beef mixture in each of the cups per layer it seems to come out just about perfect.
