FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I use store bought ingredients?

Yes! If you want to make these and don’t have leftovers, they can easily be made with Stove Top stuffing, some sliced deli turkey and canned cranberry sauce.

Can I use another meat?

Yep! Easily switch out (or add to) the turkey with ham or chicken.

Is there anything else I can add to these sliders?

The sky is the limit with these sliders. I think you could add mashed potatoes and they would still be good! For a little spicy kick, try adding on some sliced jalapeños or banana peppers.

Can cheese be added?

Absolutely! I think Swiss, gruyere or cheddar would be amazing on these sliders.

Is the glaze necessary?

I think so, yes. The glaze takes this from your standard Thanksgiving leftover sandwich to something much better!

How do I store leftovers?

These can be stored covered or in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 3 days. Reheat in an air fryer, toaster oven or microwave.

HOW TO MAKE LEFTOVER THANKSGIVING SLIDERS:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Slice the Hawaiian rolls in half so you have tops and bottoms. Lay the bottom half in a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Spread the prepared stuffing evenly onto the bottom rolls.

Stuffing spread over the top of the rolls.

Next layer the sliced turkey evenly over the stuffing layer.

In a bowl mix together the cranberry sauce with 1-½ teaspoons of dijon mustard. Set aside. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. To the melted butter add the rest of the dijon mustard (1 ½ teaspoons), Worcestershire sauce, dried onions and poppy seeds. Whisk to combine.

Add the top rolls on top of the filling. Brush the butter mixture evenly over the tops of the rolls. Cover with nonstick foil or spray foil with cooking spray. Cover the baking dish with the foil and bake for 25 minutes. Take the foil off and bake for an additional 5 minutes until toasted and browned.
