Whenever you take your favourite sandwich and make it smaller, it automatically becomes more fun!  Perfect party bites that say ‘I am Canadian’ – yet take almost no time at all – try Montreal Smoked Meat Deli Sliders.  

All you need is a decent deli, some bite-sized bagels and a bit of fancy mustard.  I enjoy the combination of sweet spice and tang against a good Montreal Smoked Meat so I chose to go artisan with the mustard and make my own Apple Mustard starting with my own Apple Butter.

Echoing the spice used in making a good quality Montreal smoked meat, I picked up the cinnamon, allspice and clove in the Apple Butter to highlight the deep flavor in the brine and rub that give the meat it’s unique flavorful and aroma.  Then it’s as simple as equal parts of smooth & grainy Dijon mustard and you have a wicked taste combination that will make you sing ‘Oh Canada’ (even the French parts).

Apple Mustard:
In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons smooth Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons grainy Dijon mustard and 2 tablespoons apple butter until smooth.

Montreal Smoked Meat Deli Sliders

8 mini bagels, sliced crosswise

1/2 pound (300g) Montreal Smoked Meat, sliced thin
1/4 cup Apple Mustard
8 conichions or mini dill pickles

Lightly toast bagels, spread on a generous portion of Apple Mustard on the bottom, then pile on the Montreal Smoked Meat.  Top with more Apple Mustard, the top of the beagle and spike it with a snazzy party picked pickle.

Pass and enjoy.  Great to have a little deli on hand when extended family comes to stay.  Simple, fast & fun. Who says good food can’t be fast food?!

Gypsy Note:  Our international readers might be more familiar with Pastrami than Montreal Smoked Meat, which is similar in many ways (but significantly different in others) Deli Sliders would work equally well with either deli selection.
