Roast Beef Appetizer: St. Germain Tartine #French Fridays with Dorie

Roast Beef Appetizer: St. Germain Tartine: Simple Living and Eating

I have already made this appetizer twice. It is so simple to make and so delicious to eat. And leftover… I think it tastes best cold out of the refrigerator. 

This appetizer is inspired from Dorie Greenspan's: Tartine Saint-Germain which is basically the same thing without spice and on big pieces of bread as a sandwich. So, think large if you would like this for lunch. 

Enjoy this for Christmas Dinner or for your New Year's Party.

Happy Holidays,

Roast Beef Appetizer: St. Germain Tartine: Simple Living and Eating

Roast Beef Appetizer: St. Germain Tartine
by Diane Balch

Preparation: 20 minutes                              Serves: 40 appetizers

Inspired by Dorie Greenspan's: Tartine Saint-Germain from "Around my French Table."


1 pound thinly sliced roast beef
1 package of cocktail size Pumpernickel bread (Rubsehlager)
1 12.5 ounce jar of cornichons 1/2 the larger pickles
1 bottle of Horseradish Sauce (Boar's Head)
salt and pepper


1) Spread the bread squares out on a cookie sheet and toast them under your broiler about 2 minutes on each side.

2) Spread horseradish sauce on each square.

3) Put about a half a piece of roast beef on top of the sauce. You'll have to gage how much you can put on each piece by how thinly it is sliced.

4) Sprinkle each piece of roast beef with salt and pepper.

5) Top the roast beef with a cornichon.

Note: As a member of French Friday's with Dorie I am not allowed to print the recipe. I invite you to take a look at this wonderful cookbook "Around My French Table" if you are interested in this or any other recipe I review.
