Gather your ingredients (mise en place)
Chef’s Tip: If you having trouble cutting the batard without crushing it, place it in the freezer for about 20 minutes. This will firm it up, and make slicing easier.
Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
Brush both sides of the batard rounds with melted butter.
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Add to the oven and bake for 8 - 12 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
Chef’s Note: They should be toasted to a golden color, but not overly browned.
Remove from oven and allow them to cool.
Take a slice of the beef, and lay on a flat, dry surface, and thinly coat the beef with half of the softened cream cheese.
Lightly season with salt and pepper.
Cover with another piece of beef and press together.
Coat the next beef slice with the remainder of the cream cheese, then salt and pepper.
Add another slice of beef on top, and press down.
Roll the beef into a tube.
Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Remove from the refrigerator and slice into thin rounds.
Add a dollop of horseradish sauce to the round.
Add a thin slice or two of cherry tomato.
Add the beef roll on top, and serve to your hungry guests. Enjoy.
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
