And let’s be real, if you use Hawaiian sweet rolls, almost any recipe is bound to turn out. They are truly my favorite! Another great option are these homemade rolls. They are beyond yummy!

However, you don’t have to use Swiss cheese or sweet rolls, whatever is in your fridge will work for this yummy slider. Work with what you have on hand.

Turkey Cranberry Sliders:

  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce (Canned or fresh works)
  • sliced turkey
  • Swiss cheese
    Sauce –
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard (I like to use a spicy mustard for an extra kick!)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (Truly a must to get the flavor just right)
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1 Tbsp dried onions (If you want to be extra you can caramelize onions, but it’s after Thanksgiving and who has the energy?) ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • sprinkle red pepper flakes (optional, your girl here likes HEAT!)

Lay hawaiian rolls on baking sheet, slice in half, removing tops and setting aside.

layer turkey on bottom half of rolls, top with cherry sauce, and layer over the top with swiss cheese. Place tops of rolls back on.

Melt butter and add all other sauce ingredients to it. Drizzle over rolls, smoothing evenly over tops. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until center of rolls are warm.
