Turkey and Cheese Sliders
King’s Hawaiian Rolls topped with thinly sliced deli turkey, and cheddar cheese and drizzled with the best buttery sauce.
- Under 30 Minutes. These sliders only take about 15 minutes to make, if you like the buns more “crispy” as I do, I’ll bake them for 20 minutes.
- Perfect for a Crowd. It makes 12 sliders but most people have 2-3. So I always double or even triple the recipe when having a party.
- Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey. Use turkey breast from Thanksgiving and if you have any leftover turkey gravy pour it on top of the turkey for a delicious day after Thanksgiving dinner or lunch.
- Sheet Pan Dinner. There is no cooking involved, just assemble the sliders and bake.
Ingredients For Turkey Sliders
- Hawaiian Rolls. I love using King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls because they have the best flavor. But you could use slider buns or dinner rolls.
- Turkey. You can use any type of turkey. I like to use oven-roasted turkey or turkey off the bone but you could use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving.
- Cheese. I used cheddar cheese but you can use any cheese you like. Can’t go wrong with cheese.
- Mayo. I add mayo to the bottom layer but you could use butter or even gravy.
- Buttery Glaze. I use yellow mustard, minced onions, Worcestershire sauce, and of course, melted butter. It’s honestly the best, so delicious. You could also add garlic powder if you like garlic.
Tips for the Best Results
- Dinner Rolls. If you can’t find King’s Hawaiian Rolls, you can also use dinner rolls instead.
- Baking Sheet. I use a baking sheet covered in foil for easy cleanup but you could also use a baking pan. Just make sure to spray the baking pan with non-stick cooking spray so the sliders don’t stick to the bottom.
- Serrated Knife. Hawaiian rolls or dinner rolls are super soft, so a regular knife will smush the rolls. Use a serrated bread knife to slice the rolls easily.
- Don’t have a Serrated Knife. Place the rolls in the freezer for 15 minutes before you cut them and it will make it easier to cut the rolls with a regular steak knife or serrated bread knife.
How To Make The Best Turkey and Cheese Sliders
- Baking Sheet. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or you can use a large baking dish too.
- Cut. Using a serrated bread knife, cut the Hawaiian rolls in half so you have a top and bottom but don’t separate the buns.
- Spread. Evenly spread the mayo onto the top and bottom of each half. Place the bottom half onto the baking sheet.
- Add. Place the turkey and cheddar cheese on top of the bottom half of the buns.
- Make Buttery Glaze. Whisk together all the ingredients and brush on top of the buns. If you don’t have a brush, you can drizzle the buttery glaze on top of the buns.
- Bake. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the tops of the buns are lightly toasted.
Leftovers & Storing
- Store. If you have any leftover sliders, they can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
- Reheat leftovers. Reheat them in the microwave for about 15 seconds. You can also heat them in the oven at 300°F for about 5-7 minutes or until warm. If the tops are starting to burn, cover lightly with foil. You can also reheat them in the air fryer for 2-3 minutes or until warm.
