Turkey Cranberry Sliders for #SundayFunday
Welcome to our group called Sunday Funday! My friend Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited some fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday. Please join us in sharing recipes that will help you to enjoy your Sunday." If you're a blogger interested in joining us, just visit our Facebook group and request to join!
This month Stacy from Food Lust People Love invited us to transform some holiday leftovers to inspire your post-Thanksgiving meals! She said "Share your creative recipes transforming holiday leftovers from traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner into something deliciously different."
I love the post-Thanksgiving sandwich. The cranberry and turkey are (for me) what makes a "Thanksgiving" sandwich! I love the sweetness and tang it adds. This is a quick, easy, and family friendly way to use up a chunk of any leftover turkey and cranberry sauce you may have after your meal. And if you have leftover cheese from a cheese tray, another component you can utilize!
These are just so yummy - that buttery topping is definitely what makes these special! It was also a great excuse to finally give my Everything Bagel Seasoning some attention. It all works together for a quick lunch, or light dinner. If you have leftovers (does that make them leftovers squared?) - these are actually really good cold from the fridge too!
Join the #SundayFunday group and get inspired to utilize your Thanksgiving leftovers in anyone of these delicious dishes!

Turkey Cranberry Sliders
8 ounces leftover turkey, sliced or similarly sized pieces
4-8 slices Swiss cheese (or any other favorite / leftover cheese you enjoy with turkey)
1 cup cranberry sauce
1 package Hawaiian dinner rolls (12 rolls)
3 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1½ teaspoons Dijon (or spicy brown) mustard
½ teaspoon Everything Bagel seasoning
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Slice the Hawaiian rolls in half (you can leave them all in tact and not separate the rolls at this point).
- Lay the bottom halves in the prepped pan, lay the turkey over the rolls, distribute the cranberry sauce over the meat, and top with your preferred amount of cheese slices. Lay the top half of the rolls over the cheese.
- In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, then whisk in the Worcestershire, mustard, and Everything Bagel seasoning.
- Brush / pour the butter mixture evenly over the tops and sides of the sliders.
- Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 5-8 minutes until browned and cheese is fully melted.
- Carefully slice between the sliders with a sharp knife to separate the sliders / turkey meat. Serve while hot.
