This New Year's Eve, I was treated to turkey sliders for the first time (most you probably already know about them). Its not a dish that I would normally make in the sense that the brainy gourmet does simple frugal dinners rather than appetizers and or ... hors d'oeuvres.
So, when something like this comes along, I just have to share and in that case, best to just pass along the recipe and let you take it from there... adding or subtracting what you like and don't like as I do with most recipes I see or photos of food that I think I could make.
For instance, this recipe called for cranberry sauce to be layered in the sandwich slider but to me that sounded like adding 'jelly' and not what I would prefer in a hot sandwich. But, you may want to add it. Here is a common recipe for turkey sliders - Enjoy!
- 1 package Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (12 count)
- 2 cups diced leftover turkey [or use sliced deli turkey or ham]
- 1 cup cranberry sauce or relish [or not]
- 6 slices Swiss (or favorite cheese)
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp yellow mustard [or not]
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tbsp dried minced onion
- salt and pepper to taste
- Parmesan cheese (optional)
- dried parsley (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cover 9x13 baking pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
- Remove rolls from package in one piece.
- Cut entire slab of rolls in half lengthwise. (You will end up with one slab of "tops" and one slab of "bottoms".)
- Place bottom slab in foiled cover pan.
- Layer with turkey, cranberry sauce and cheese. (note: You may need to warm the cranberry sauce for a few seconds in the microwave to make it a spreadable consistency.)
- Add top slab of rolls.
- Melt butter in microwave and whisk in remaining ingredients (except parm. cheese and parsley). Pour evenly over rolls.
- Cover with foil and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Bake covered for 20 minutes.
- Uncover and cook 5 additional minutes.
- (Optional) Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
- Slice into individual sliders and serve warm.
