Looking for leftover turkey sliders on Hawaiian Rolls that are packed with flavor then you’ve got to try these turkey and brie sliders with green apple.
These turkey sliders are great for tailgates and can be baked on your pellet grill or in the oven at home
How To Slice the Hawaiian Rolls
The hardest part of making these sliders is cutting the Hawaiian rolls in half without separating them.
Make sure to use a sharp knife that you can cut all the way across in one motion. Carefully slices the rolls in the middle so you have even tops and bottoms.
Once you have cut the rolls gently lift off the tops and set them aside. If you think the tops are going to separate then use a spatula to help keep them together.
Ingredients for Leftover Turkey Sliders
Turkey: If it’s the day after Thanksgiving then you’ll obviously use leftover turkey but this recipe is so good you’ll make it year-round and deli-sliced turkey works just fine as well.
Apple: I prefer green apples for their crisp texture and sweet and sour flavor. If you prefer a milder flavor you can use red apples.
Cheese. I love using brie because we always have leftover brie from our holiday charcuterie tray. other cheeses that you can use include Havarti, Munster, or cheddar.
Rolls: Kings Hawaiian Rolls are my favorite because they are soft and pillowy with a slightly sweet flavor. If you can’t find them any small size dinner rolls will work fine as a substitute.
Condiments: I love to use my Cranberry Mayo that I make using leftover cranberry sauce but this recipe will work great with Honey Mustard or even plain mayonnaise.
Additional Ingredients: Bacon is always a great addition or possibly some lettuce or baby greens. It’s really up to you what topping you add to these turkey sliders.
Step By Step Instructions
Slicing the Rolls: Carefully slices the entire package of rolls in half. do your best to cut the tops off as one piece.
Topping the Sliders: Start off with a layer of cranberry mayo then lay out your sliced or shredded turkey followers by the green apple and brie cheese.
Baking: You can grill the sliders using a pellet grill or bake in a conventional oven. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter to give the rolls an extra layer of buttery goodness as well as helping the buns crisp up.
Serving: Once the sliders are toasted and the cheese is melted slice the rolls into individual portions and serve.
What to Serve with Sliders
If these are being served for lunch I like to serve the turkey sliders alongside some kind of pasta or potato salad along with chips and pickles.
