Omaha Rueben Dip Crockpot Recipe

This is an amazing starter to any gathering! We like to call it The Omaha Rueben as one story holds its origin from the great city of Omaha, Nebraska. Why we love this...well we reside in this great city ourselves!

Quick fun fact; Reuben Kulakofsky, a Jewish-Lithuanian born grocer residing in Omaha, Nebraska, asked for a sandwich made of corned beef and sauerkraut at his weekly poker game held in the Blackstone Hotel from around 1920 through 1935. The sandwich first gained local fame when Schimmel put it on the Blackstone's lunch menu, and its fame spread when a former employee of the hotel won the national sandwich idea contest with the recipe!
