Roast Beef, Brie and Pepper Jelly Sliders

Why is it that a normal, every-day food just tastes better when it’s small? Take the sandwich. A roast beef sammie for lunch is absolutely fine. Put it on a little slider bun, however, and OH BABY!!!! It is cute, more fun to eat and for some odd reason, seems to taste better. Hence these Roast Beef, Brie and Pepper Jelly Sliders!

Really, SMALL is just cute in any package, isn’t it? Hiking boots are fine. Put teeny tiny Timberlands on a baby, however, and people become lunatics, oohing and aahing over how cute they are! Case in point: Jack. Jack is my first grand baby. (I am NOT old enough for that. I’m sure of that fact.) He is also (obviously) Sarah’s first nephew on our side.

Baby Jack
Jack is the cutest thing ever, and our entire world has become focused on this little human. We don’t watch movies together any more. Or play games. We used to, but it’s way more fun to just sit around and watch Jack. His latest trick: rolling over. Riveting. We can watch that for hours. Toes. Fingers. Jeans. Shoes. Sweaters. Hoodies. Hats. You name it, it’s cuter on Jack. Make something small and it’s suddenly much more enticing.

That same concept goes with food, too! Those baby bananas? CUTE. Baby artichokes? ADORABLE. Bite-sized mint brownies? As long as I can eat 5 of them, DELECTABLE!

Roast beef, brie and pepper jelly sliders? WAYYYYY better than a big ol’ sandwich.  Add to the cuteness of a slider the fact that this combo is an EXPLOSION of flavor in your mouth, and you know you have scored big time. You can even leave off the glaze if you’re feeling lazy…although who wouldn’t want a good dose of melty herbed butter on their slider? After all, it’s only a teeny tiny bit of butter on this teeny tiny roll, right?

    Elizabeth… you are correct, these are adorable little sandwiches. But after having the pleasure of eating them at your home a couple of weeks ago, I have been fantasizing about them on the daily. They are HUGE in flavor and deliciousness and hit every button for sweet, salty, savory, creamy. What a fantastic sandwich combo! You’ve done it again!

    Where do you get your pepper jelly or do you make it your own? These sound scrumptious!
