Process Steps for Layering Leftover Turkey Sliders

How to Make Sliders

It’s easy to put this appetizer or meal together. And, the garlic butter topping really adds flavor to the little sandwiches. To make the Turkey Sliders, layer the bottoms of the rolls in a greased baking dish. Then, top the buns with turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, cheese (each slice will cover about two of the rolls), and gravy. Top it all with the tops of the rolls and magic ingredient–seasoned butter topping!

To make the butter topping, simply mix together the melted butter, garlic salt, and parsley. Be ready to spread that all over the tops of your sliders! In fact, be sure to get that butter into every nook & cranny, over the sides, into every little crevice. If you don’t have a pastry brush you can also pour the melted butter over the top.

Hand Picking Up Leftover Turkey Sliders

Cover the sliders with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes at 350°F, or until you notice the cheese is hot and bubbly. Take off the foil after the 15 minutes and let bake, uncovered, for another 5 minutes or so. The rolls should be golden brown. Get ready for everybody to grab one (or two or three)!

  1. Oh yummmm, Looks like a perfect “leftover” slider! I think you may have meant garlic powder, instead of garlic salt, in your ingredients since you also add regular salt to the butter topping. Happy holidays!
