One of my favorite snacks to make for game day or any other casual event that involves guests at my house is turkey cranberry sliders.

  • 1 package (12 rolls) Hawaiian style dinner rolls
  • 8 ounces turkey lunchmeat or leftover fully cooked turkey
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese (swiss also works well)
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (or 1 can of jellied cranberry sauce, sliced into 12 rounds)
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Remove the rolls from the package and use a long, sharp knife to cut the whole loaf in half horizontally to create a bottom half and a top half. Place the bottom half into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish
  • Evenly distribute the turkey over the bottom half of the bread, then top with the cheese and then the cranberry sauce. Place the top half of the loaf on top.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and poppy seeds over medium heat until the butter is melted and the sugar dissolved; stir often
  • Pour the sauce all over the top of the sandwiches, using a spoon or pastry brush to evenly distribute the sauce
  • Cover the dish with foil, then bake the sliders at 375Ffor 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-6 minutes untilthe sliders are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • Cool slightly before serving.


Recipe notes:
  • I use deli-style turkey lunchmeat, but this can also be done with leftover turkey.
  • I used canned whole berry cranberry sauce, but it could be made with slices of jellied cranberry sauce or even a homemade sauce.
