Need an idea for using up all of the Thanksgiving leftovers? My favorite way to turn the turkey into a whole new meal is to make Turkey Cranberry Sliders. They couldn't be easier and they are super tasty! Simply fill Hawaiian rolls with turkey, cranberry sauce,  your favorite cheese, and you could even add potatoes or stuffing.

  • 8 ounces leftover turkey or thick cut turkey deli meat
  • 4 large slices Gouda, Havarti, Swiss or Provolone cheese (or other favorite cheese)
  • 1 cup cranberry relish or sauce
  • 1 package Hawaiian dinner rolls (12 rolls)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds or Everything Bagel seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. and prepare a 9X13 (or slightly smaller) baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Slice Hawaiian buns in half while keeping all of the buns attached to one another. Remove the top buns and set aside.
  3. Place the bottom buns in the pan. Add the turkey over the buns and top with cranberry relish or sauce, slices of cheese and the tops of the buns.

  4. In a small microwave safe bowl, mix the butter, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon and seasoning or poppy seeds. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until the butter is melted.
  5. Brush the butter mixture over the top of the buns. Cover with foil and bake at 375°F for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-8 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven and slice into individual sliders and serve immediately. If you have leftover gravy, it makes a great dip for these turkey sliders! Sliders are best served right after being removed from the oven. These don't store or re-heat very well.

Recipe Notes

*Measurements for turkey, cranberry sauce and cheese are all approximate. Use the preferred amount for your sliders.
