I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new things to do with leftover Turkey. The holidays always leave us with so much leftover meat, that I want to repurpose in delicious new ways. Turkey Noodle Soup has been a favorite for years. Turkey Salad and Turkey Enchiladas are two family favorites because you would never know that you are eating leftovers!

These Turkey Sliders are great because you can mix them up and use whatever you have on hand or whatever your family likes!

What You’ll Need

  • Slider Buns – Hawaiian or your favorite savory/buttery rolls
  • Turkey – use leftover roast turkey or your favorite deli meat
  • Cheese – I like sliced cheddar, but use your favorite
  • Ranch Dressing – I like to use this instead of mayo or another spread for more flavor. You can sub mayo, mustard or whatever you like.
  • Butter
  • Garlic
  • Parsley

How To Make Turkey Sliders

  • Assemble – place the bottom of the slider buns in your baking dish. Spread the ranch dressing over the buns. Next arrange the slices of cheese to cover the bottom, and top with your turkey. Top with the rest of the cheese and the top buns.
  • Bake – Brush the top of the buns with the melted butter, garlic, and parsley mixture and then place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and things are warmed through. If the buns start to brown, you can cover with foil.
  • Serve – Remove the pan from the oven and slice the buns into individual sliders. Arrange on a platter and serve.

Recipe Tips & Suggestions

  • Meat. You can use leftover turkey or deli meat, either works and doesn’t change the recipe much. If you are using roast turkey, you may need to bake longer to get the turkey warmed through. You can either heat it first before assembling the sliders, or just cover with foil to bake until the cheese is melted and the turkey is warmed through.
  • Cheese. I used sliced cheddar, but you can use any cheese you like! Provolone, Swiss, Mozzarella, whatever you have and like will work great!
  • Ranch. Use Homemade Ranch Dressing, your favorite bottled stuff or mix it up. Mayo works great. If you have leftover cranberry sauce, you can use that.

If you have leftover turkey sliders, you can cover with foil and place in the fridge for 3-4 days. They are great cold, or you can warm them in the microwave or a hot oven to melt the cheese and get them hot if desired.

What To Serve With Turkey Sliders

These are a super versatile sandwich you can serve as an appetizer or on your game day table. Or you can serve as a meal when trying to clean out the fridge.

Can I Make These Ahead

Yes, you can definitely assemble these and have them ready for the oven the day ahead of time. Then when you are ready to serve, just pop them in the oven to bake. If everything is cold, you will want to cover with foil to make sure they don’t brown too fast while they cook longer to get everything warmed through.
