Yeah, I know what you mean. And are you supposed to drain the sauerkraut? So, here's what I do:

I slice up the corned beef (which are already sliced, so it's sort of like dicing, only not as fine). Then I put the corned beef and cheeses (which are pre-shredded) into a bowl. Then I find out the bowl isn't big enough, cuz I haven't a clue what a "small package" of corned beef is supposed to be. I thought the ones that I bought (2.5oz for 49cents) were even smaller than the recipe required, so I bought twice as many. As for the cheeses, most don't come in 4oz packages anymore (at least not at the Meijer I was at tonight). I got 4oz of Swiss, but an 8oz package of colby/monteray jack (no jack solo, alas). And I figured I had 8 oz of cheddar at home that I'd yet to use for anything.

So now I'm at a sort of double recipe - but that's OK cuz I don't have any idea what size can of sauerkraut to buy - and as I refuse to buy cans of sauerkraut on principle, I got the smallest jar that they had (32oz).

I bunged it all together in a larger bowl along with a squeezy thingy of Miracle Whip (10 oz - probably the only thing I have too little of in my current batch) and stirred. I've discovered that, although squeezy things hold less Miracle Whip (which was the desire) they're damned hard to get the last little bit out. I'll go back to the small jar next time I make it. (I just don't care for Miracle Whip, so I usually avoid having any in my house.)

Once it was all stirred together, I put it in a 9x13" pan (why the originator of this recipe didn't believe in units, I'll never know). Tomorrow I'll see if Patsy can bake it for me (along with the other carry-in items). She's the Home Ec teacher (though they don't call them that anymore).

I'll let you know how to went. (Though to be honest, I *always* guess this recipe and so far it's *always* turned out fine.)

Okaaaay. And then you bake it on what for how long? This recipe is most mysterious.

That was in the original bit - 350° for 30 minutes.
