Thanksgiving leftover sliders

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving whatever you chose or were able to do! We had a very nice dinner with a few family members. It takes a lot of time to prepare for a large meal between thinking of what to serve, buying the ingredients, prepping, cooking and cleaning up after for a meal that takes less than 30 minutes to eat. For me I wouldn’t change a thing! We have gone out to dinner only once or twice that I can remember over the years and it is just not the same. Plus I LOVE having leftovers as is or turning them into something else to snack on.

a couple of years I made Thanksgiving egg rolls which were a huge hit. Thanksgiving Leftover Egg Roll. This year I made Thanksgiving leftover sliders which were super easy to make and very tasty a definite keeper. I will make sure to have rolls on hand to make these again next year.


There are also two other recipes we had at the table that I plan on writing about and sharing with you over the next couple of weeks that will also be on our table throughout the year. My daughter made a brussel sprout pomegrante salad that was excellent and I made a butternut squash soup that was fantastic so stay tuned for those. I think the salad would be perfect on your table for this years Christmas dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 package hawaiin rolls 12 pack or even more
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1+ cup stuffing
  • 3-4 slices havarti cheese or swiss, provolone whatever you have on hand
  • 1+ cup shredded turkey
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 2 tablespoon dijon mustard

Instructions

  • slice the buns in half length wise. cover one half with cheese slices, add your shredded turkey and then your stuffing
  • on the other half spread your cranberry sauce and then flip that side onto the turkey side.
  • melt the butter and add the dijon mustard.
  • place on a baking sheet. Brush on some of the melted butter dijon mixture and bake for 7-8 minutes.
  • You could bake the turkey cheese side of the buns for 2-3 minutes before adding the cranberry side, it would give the cheese time to melt and let the turkey and stuffing heat up more. Some of the buns got a little browner than I liked because I wanted the cheese to melt.

Thanksgiving prep

Not sure how your Thanksgiving will look this crazy year but I am still planning on cooking for my family and my in-laws that we spend the most amount of time with. Well my plan is to cook for everyone the only downfall at the moment is I cannot find any small turkeys. I prefer to make two small (10 pounds or under)  birds versus one large one. Not only do I find they have a better chance of being tender If I can prepare them differently. Last year I roasted one and fried the other. If I can’t find what I want today I will have to just deal with what I get then decide how I want to cook it.

My food blog for the most part has become a weekly diary of what is happening not only in my kitchen but my garden and some parts of my life. I try not to share every detail but I think if I read back over the years I could come up with a pretty clear picture of what’s been happening. With that being said I am going to share a few past recipes that my family has come to expect on our Thanksgiving table a week before the holiday. Look at me evolving.

Cranberry sauce, canned or fresh?  I have been serving both for a few years now. Not sure which one is easier seriously. Opening a can or a bag?  A bag add 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar and some orange zest into a sauce pan, bring to a boil until the cranberries start to pop and a little longer. the sauce will thicken while it cools. that’s it.  Give it a try this year if you haven’t before.

here are a few links for our favorite dressing/stuffing along with a couple of ideas for leftovers. Turkey soup and leftover egg rolls that everyone loved.
