GIVEAWAY!! Spiced Shredded Apple Butter Brisket Sliders

Pretend it's Superbowl Sunday and you're having a party.  What are you serving?  These Brisket Sliders!  Seriously, gameday is right around the corner and even though the Steelers didn't quite make it this year, it's still an excuse to party.  And snack.  So you better get ready!

Whether you are having your own get together or heading to someone else's, this recipe is just perfect! The original recipe was for a spiced brisket made in the oven (which would be great for a sit down dinner) but I wanted something more party friendly and finger food-ish, so I adjusted it.  These sliders are super easy since the brisket is made in the Crock-Pot.  I would definitely make it the day before because it takes some time to slow cook and it reheats well.

My secret weapon in this recipe is Musselman's Apple Butter.  I typically have only used apple butter as a spread on toast or as a substitute for oil while baking.  Boy, have i been missing out!  Musselman's was kind enough to send me a jar and I discovered it's also great for marinades, sauces, and dips...AND it is gluten free and dairy free!  Check out their giveaway details below!

Enjoy!
