How To Make Leftover Turkey Cranberry Sliders

after thanksgiving recipe idea

In order to make these mini turkey sandwiches, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Then, get a pan or a baking dish and either line it with tinfoil or spray with cooking spray.

Assemble your Hawaiian rolls – opening them face up. Begin your layers by adding your pieces of leftover turkey to your sliders.

Next, add your swiss cheese. I like to cut my pieces in half and them fold again. But that’s up to you.

I’ve made these sandwiches a few different ways. You can add in your cranberry sauce before baking. This is easiest because you don’t have to worry about doing anything once the sliders are done.

But personally, I like to coolness of the cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving and sometimes I make these sandwiches without this layer and then add in this final sweet flavor profile once everything is done.

This is entirely a personal preference.

Melt your butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds and add a few shakes of garlic powder. You can even add onion powder, poppy seeds, sesame seeds – it’s all up to you! Close your buns and top each with a layer of the butter mixture.

Cover with tinfoil and bake for about 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Substitute Suggestions

  • You can substitute out the different type of cheese that you use. It will change the taste of this dish entirely.
  • Even the bread rolls. I love Hawaiian rolls, but maybe you don’t want something so sweet.
  • How about adding some bacon to the mix? YUM and YUM!
  • Stuffing works, too! If you have leftovers, layer them in.
  • This goes for vegetables as well. As long as you can fit it into the sandwich, give it a shot.
  • I GUESS if you want to get a bit healthy… you COULD add some tomatoes and lettuce. LOL!
