Cut 3 to 4 pieces of the bread into cubes so that you have 2 cups of bread cubes.
Line the bottom of the dish with the bread cubes. Cover with half of the corned beef.
Layer ingredients in the following order: sauerkraut, pickle relish, caraway seeds, 2 cups of cheese, the remaining beef, and the remaining cheese.
With a whisk, beat together the eggs, milk, mustard and Thousand Island dressing until well mixed.
Pour over the casserole.
Using a blender or food processor, make 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs with the remaining slices of bread.
