CRANBERRY TURKEY SLIDERS

Turkey Sliders are crazy easy to make and very similar to the popular ham and cheese sliders that pop up at parties. But these are loaded with cheese, cranberry sauce and topped with a savory butter sauce before being sprinkled with Everything Bagel Seasoning.

These easy sliders are then baked in the oven until they’re melty, crispy and hot. The perfect game day snack, easy weeknight dinner or party appetizer.

HOW TO MAKE THEM

This easy Turkey Cranberry Slider recipe requires no real skill at all. Simply layer everything on either Hawaiian slider rolls or brioche slider rolls and then pop them in the oven.

Split the rolls in half, if you can keep the whole package of rolls in tact while cutting them, it will make your sandwich making infinitely easier.

Place the bottom half of the roll in a 13×9 inch baking dish.

Spread the mayonnaise and dijon mustard on the bottom half of the roll to coat.

Layer the Swiss cheese slices on the bottom half of the roll and top with the turkey in an even layer.

Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the turkey and spoon the cranberry sauce evenly over the cheese.

Top the sandwich with the top half of the rolls.

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce and dijon mustard.

Pour the mixture over the top of the rolls and brush to coat.

Sprinkle the Everything Seasoning over the rolls and cover with foil.

Bake the sliders for 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Serve hot! (with leftover gravy for dipping, if desired.)

HOW TO MAKE IN ADVANCE

You can assemble the turkey sliders in advance up until the point of pouring the butter sauce over them. Assemble and cover before storing in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.

To bake, remove the foil and pour the butter over the sandwiches. Sprinkle with the seasoning, cover and bake as directed.

WHAT TO SERVE THEM WITH

Since these turkey sliders make a great party snack or tailgating meal, we like to serve them with things like parmesan fries or these easy salt and vinegar potato chips!

You could also serve them with some stuffing and mashed potatoes to keep the Thanksgiving theme alive and well all weekend long.
