Roast Beef and Muenster Cheese Sliders

I’m sure that most of you have at one time or another, made sliders or have at least eaten them at a party. After all, they are not only a breeze to put together, they taste darn good too. The classic version of sliders is of course, Hawaiian Ham and Swiss Sliders This version became popular a few years ago and still is. Sliders are perfect to serve on game day or for a baby shower. Everyone loves them! I wanted to make one of my favorite sandwiches, roast beef and cheese, into a slider. Voila! Roast Beef and Muenster Cheese Sliders is here.

Boar’s Head

I’ve found that when making sliders, one of the most important (and often overlooked) thing is using good quality meat and cheese. Since you don’t need much of either, go to the deli and buy the good stuff. We purchased Boar’s Head London Broil Top Round Roast Beef. An excellent choice and one I highly recommend. If you aren’t a fan of Muenster cheese, they’re are many delicious Boar’s Head cheese to try instead. Consider one of these instead: Cream Havarti, Smoked Gouda, Bold Horseradish Cheddar Cheese or try the new Caramelized Onion Jack Monterey Jack Cheese.

The slices I purchased were large, which meant I only needed four slices, making these sliders inexpensive to make. The better the quality of meat and cheese you use for sliders, the better they’ll taste. Buying, let’s say, six slices of premium meat and cheese will probably cost less than if you buy the already package stuff, that doesn’t expire for several years. If you like a lot of meat on your sliders, feel free to add more. If you like a lot of cheese on your sliders, add more. How you make your sliders is up to you.

Muenster Cheese

Munster cheese goes exceptionally well with roast beef in my opinion but many people don’t know much about this mild yet tangy cheese. I did not purchase the Muenster cheese at the deli which was a mistake on my part. One I won’t be repeating I might add. Muenster cheese is a mild, white cheese with a reddish-orange rind made from paprika. This can be eaten but is often cut off. It is semi-firm in texture with a mild smell that stronger as it ages. Muenster cheese is currently made in Germany, France and the United States.

It was originally made by Benedictine monks that migrated to the Alsace region of France. The cheese was created to save milk and feed numerous people. The original name “muenster” comes from the word monastery.  Authentic French Muenster cheese is made from the milk of cows that graze in the Vosges mountains of eastern France. Today, farmers still use the traditional methods of cheese-making.

Muenster cheese can be very mild and creamy, but as it ages it becomes more sharp and tangy. It is sometimes described as a cross between a mild cheddar and a mozzarella. This cheese melts well, so it’s great for putting on burgers or to make a grilled cheese. Because it can be mild, this is a great cheese for adding texture and flavor without overpowering the other ingredients in a dish. You could use it in macaroni cheese or in any casserole that calls for cheese.

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Sliders are made with Hawaiian Sweet Rolls have been a favorite of ours for years. I’ve been serving Hawaiian rolls at our Thanksgiving dinner way before sliders made them popular. There was a time when Hawaiian rolls weren’t that easy to find in grocery stores and weren’t available year round. Hawaiian sweet rolls were considered a “seasonal” item in the grocery stores.

It’s a pleasure to see these delicious rolls in every grocery store, throughout the year. When my granddaughter Willow was around two years old she went nuts over Hawaiian sweet rolls. It was the only thing she’d eat and my daughter would have to literally stock up on rolls. Willow would sit in her little chair at the kitchen table and cry until she got her rolls!

Creamy Horseradish

Inglehoffer Mustard and Sauces isn’t German or Austrian and it isn’t named after a small German town, located high on a hill top. It’s A brand of mustard  and sauces produced by one brand in a family of condiments called Beaverton Foods located in Oregon. Beaverton Foods has been in business for over 80 years. Here at Turnips 2 Tangerines we have long used Inglehoffer creamy horseradish sauce for as long as I can remember. We love it! Use the brand you like however, I do encourage you to try the Inglehoffer Brand. Look for these brands of Beaverton Products.

Brief History of Beaverton

In 1929 Rose Biggi started Beaverton Foods in the cellar of her farmhouse. To help endure the Great Depression, she began grinding her horseradish crop, bottling it, and selling it to local grocery stores. Through her hard work and perseverance, she not only survived the hard economic times but also built the foundation for the largest specialty condiment manufacturer in the United States.

Over eighty years and four generations later, her son, Gene, continues the hard work and perseverance. Beaverton Foods has an international reputation for manufacturing quality products and developing innovative condiment flavors. In the last decade, Gene’s mustards and sauces have received over one hundred certificates of excellence and awards for quality, more than all other mustard manufacturers combined.
