  • 1 dozen Hawaiian style rolls
  • 1 pound leftover fully cooked turkey or deli style turkey breast
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese*
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (or jellied cranberry sauce)
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Remove the rolls from the package and use a long, sharp knife to cut the whole loaf in half horizontally to create a bottom half and a top half. Place the bottom half into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish.
  3. Evenly distribute the turkey over the bottom half of the bread, then top with the cheese and then the cranberry sauce. Place the top half of the loaf on top.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat whisking constantly; combine the butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and poppy seeds until the butter is melted and the brown sugar dissolved.
  5. Pour the sauce evenly over the top of the sandwiches, using a spoon or pastry brush to evenly distribute the sauce.
  6. Cover the dish with foil and bake the sliders at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the sliders are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  7. Cool slightly before serving.

Recipe Notes

*can exchange for Swiss cheese either is delicious

Notes: I used canned whole berry cranberry sauce, but it could be made with slices of jellied cranberry sauce or even a homemade sauce.
