  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine corned beef, cream cheese, cubed Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, dressing, and caraway seeds with a sturdy spoon or spatula. Spread evenly into a 2-quart oven-safe dish. Set aside.

  3. Tear two slices of rye bread into pieces and pulse in a food processor or spice grinder until coarsely ground. Process additional slices of bread as needed.

  4. Melt the butter over medium heat in a medium skillet. Add the crumbs and stir to coat.

  5. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes, until the crumbs are dry and crisp. Remove from heat.

  6. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the dip. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until the top is golden and the edges are bubbling.

  7. Lightly butter the remaining slices of rye bread and sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt. Stack slices on top of one another, and then slice into triangles or rectangles. Place a metal cooling rack inside a baking sheet and arrange the bread slices on top.

  8. When there is about 10 minutes left on the dip, place the bread in the oven alongside the dip to toast.

  9. Remove the dip and the toasts from oven. Top the dip with minced chives, stick in a spoon, and serve immediately while hot.

  10. Instruct guests to eat by scooping out a bit of the dip with the spoon and topping pieces of toast.
