Ingredients

For the Russian dressing

  • 1 cornichon, finely chopped
  • ½ shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 2 tsp horseradish sauce or cream
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • Dash Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash smoked hot sauce (optional)
  • Pinch hot paprika

Method

  1. In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the russian dressing until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat the grill to medium-high. Toast the bagel, then spread the bottom half of the bagel with a generous helping of the russian dressing. Top with the cheese and put back under the grill for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  3. Working quickly while the bread is still hot and the cheese melted, pile on the roast beef, followed by the sauerkraut. Sprinkle with a few caraway seeds (if using) and a little more russian dressing, if you like. Put the bagel lid on top and eat straightaway, fingers dripping with oozing loveliness.

  1. The dressing will keep chilled for several days. It goes well with anything from boiled new potatoes to baked salmon.

  2. Sauerkraut comes in two varieties – pasteurised and raw. The former undergoes heat treatment to create a shelf-stable product; find it alongside other condiments in most supermarkets. Raw kraut has probiotic properties; find it in the chilled section of health food stores and some supermarkets.
