How to make it

  1. In a saute pan or frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garic and saute until the onion is soft and translucent. Stir in the cream cheese, swiss cheese and 1/4 cup crumbs. Stir until the cheeses melt and the crumbs are incorporated.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Meanwhile, spread the sauerkraut over clean kitchen towel(s), then roll up the towels and wring out all of the moisture you can over the sink.
  5. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the cheesy mixture with the corned beef and sauerkraut.
  6. For each wrap: choose two romaine lettuce leaves that fit together well and make a nice "taco" shape.
  7. Spread the filling down the center of the leaves, drizzle with thousand island dressing and sprinkle with chopped green onion. Enjoy!
