In a large bowl combine the 1,000 Island dressing, eggs, sour cream, relish and mustard. Mix well and set aside.
Line the bottom of a 9”x9” casserole dish with roughly 2 cups of broken up rye bread (enough to line the bottom of the dish). Drizzle bread with 2 TBSP of melted butter. Layer with remaining ingredients starting with the corned beef, then the sauerkraut, then with the sauce mixture and finally with the cheese.
Top with the remaining bread crumbs, drizzle with 2 more TBSP of butter. Cover.
Bake for approx. 20 minutes. Remove lid and continue baking until bread becomes nice and toasted.
