  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray large baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix sauerkraut, mustard and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in large bowl until well blended. Stir in corned beef and cheese.

Lift opposite strips of dough from each side, twist each once and press ends together in center to seal, covering filling. Tuck each end under dough to seal. Brush top with egg white.
