So this one takes some time commitment, but is not actually that hard and looks so cool! I would recommend only doing this for a small gathering. It is a lot of work and you are left with a whole lot of bread scraps, but did I mention how cool it is??? You may need to ask ahead at the bakery for them to leave a couple of loaves of Pumpernickel unsliced for you.
|2||Pumpernickel loaves - UNSLICED|
|1 Pkg||Maple Leaf Corned Beef Brisket|
|6 tsp||Russian Salad Dressing (or 1000 Islands)|
|3||Whole Garlic Cloves - sliced very thin|
|1 cup||Canola Oil|
|1/2 cup||Swiss Cheese - shredded|
Prepare the corned beef as directed on the package and keep warm.
Cut your Loaves into 3 large cubes, approximately 3.5 inches high by 2.5 inches across.
In a deep skillet, heat the oil to 325 F and add the sliced Garlic. Fry each cube on all sides so that they are crispy. Set aside on a piece of paper towel. When you are done remove the garlic slices (which should now be crispy and golden brown) and place on paper towel.
Using a sharp bread knife cut the "lid" off you cube by slicing about 1/2 an inch off. Hollow out the cube using a steak knife, making sure you do not go all the way through.
Fill each cube with a few thin slices of corned beef, warmed sauerkraut, drizzle with dressing, add cheese and then top with lid. Place in 350 F oven for 10 minutes.
Top each cube with fried garlic and Enjoy!
