  • 1 baguette cut up into slices
  • 2-4 tablespoons olive oil to drizzle over the bread and for warming the meat
  • 1 heaping cup shredded leftover brisket
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce I use homemade, but feel free to use your favorite
  • 3 tablespoons crème fraîche sour cream or thick Greek yogurt would substitute well too
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Turn oven broiler to high.
  2. Place baguette slices on a cookie sheet and brush lightly with olive oil.
  3. Place in the oven on broil under high heat until lightly golden toasted (about three minutes depending on how far up your top rack is. Keep a close eye on it). Remove.
  4. Meanwhile heat up a medium size skillet to medium heat. Add some olive oil and warm up shredded brisket. Add BBQ sauce to the meat and stir. Remove. (Note: If you put the sauce on before the meat warms up it will caramelize too early because of the sugar, so put the BBQ sauce on after the meat is warmed through).
  5. Place crème fraîche into a piping bag (or do what we do and put it into a sandwich baggie and cut a small whole in the tip).
  6. Top each slice of baguette with about 1 heaping spoonful of meat/BBQ mixture, then top with a dollop of crème fraîche. Garnish with parsley.
