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.
Thanksgiving leftover sliders
- 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
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.
