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.
