These Leftover Turkey Sliders are a fun new way to use up your Thanksgiving Dinner leftovers.
Can we all agree that leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving? Okay, maybe not the best. Family and giving thanks and all that blah blah are the best part but leftovers are right up there, right?
The day after Thanksgiving is when the fun starts. I usually start off by making stock, using the leftover carcass and then turn that into a turkey soup. Sometimes I'll make some sort of pasta with the turkey and vegetables and of course, we make turkey sandwiches.
Turkey Sandwiches are the best.
Last week, hotel style turkey was on sale and I couldn't pass it up. I made a faux Thanksgiving dinner. I scaled way down but I did manage to make the basics. I even went all out and made homemade cranberry sauce and gravy.
The day after we ate the turkey dinner, I had tons of leftovers and instead of the usual go to leftover meals, I grabbed some small dinner rolls and made fun sliders.
I've now made these sliders twice. The first time I used the King's Hawaiian dinner rolls and the sweetness of the rolls was a great addition. The second time I made them I used a potato roll, which also was awesome. When Thanksgiving rolls around (pun totally intended), I will probably use snowflake rolls because that's usually what I have leftover. After all, that's what this recipe is all about right, using the leftovers? So the type of roll doesn't really matter, as long as it's a dinner sized roll.
These sliders only take about 15 minutes from beginning to end. Speed is important in a leftover recipe because who the heck wants to spend a ton of time cooking the day AFTER a holiday? Not me.
I started off by slicing 12 dinner rolls in half and placing the bottoms on a baking sheet. Next I placed square of cheddar cheese. I then added some turkey, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. After that I put the tops back on and brush them with a little melted butter. I popped them in the oven for about 10 minutes at 400, just until everything is warmed through and the cheese is melted.
