If you have some leftover pastrami, these are a snap to make, and a sure favorite for your next tailgate party, or just for plain fun. If you do not, then get some thinly-sliced pastrami from you local deli. I am using homemade Hawaiian slider buns, and I like how the sweetness of the buns, contrasts the spiciness of the pastrami, and mustard. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Several things to bring this slider together, and help make it a winner. The Bun: I am using a homemade sweet Hawaiian roll, and I love how the sweetness of the bread contrasts with the rest of the sandwich. The Cheese: Swiss cheese, is a typical addition to a pastrami sandwich, but I changed that up, and I am using provolone. It has a somewhat earthy flavor, and it is not greasy, like some other cheeses, like cheddar. The Mustard: You do not want an ordinary yellow, or brown mustard for this slider. You want something with a bit of kick to it. If you have a good spicy brown mustard, use it. If you are in the market for a good mustard, I created this one specifically for corned beef, and pastrami. Finally, I am using leftover, homemade pastrami. If that is not an option, just get some good deli pastrami, sliced thin.

    Add the remaining pastrami, and then the other two cheese quarters.

    Slather the remaining mustard on the cut side of the top half of the slider bun, and place on top. I like a bit more mustard, than the recipe calls for.
