|Homemade is the best, but these are my favorite pre-packaged dinner rolls!|
For the last couple of years, we’ve celebrated Thanksgiving at home as our daughter’s birthday falls just a few days after the holiday. It’s been best for us to stick around the house because we previously planned large birthday parties for her here (with lots of prep work to complete!) before we had guests.
During our brief layover at home, I roasted a small turkey I bought before we had our Thanksgiving plans set in stone. So, after a few days of turkey, dressing, and pie at my mom’s, we came home to a whole roasted bird of our own to use up. I was pretty Thanksgiving’ed out, so I decided to get a little creative with some some dinner rolls and some chopped turkey!
I’ve recently made my own versions of Sloppy Joe sliders, Philly Cheesesteak-style sliders, chicken fajita sliders and others and my kids thought they were super cool. Trust me, it won’t be the last time you see an easy slider recipe on this site.
It’s a wonderfully easy and satisfying dish for dinner or entertaining.
I made these easy sliders using just a little bit of mayo, sharp cheddar, roasted turkey, cranberry sauce and some fresh baby greens. They were so good and kind of like a Thanksgiving-inspired spin on a Monte Cristo sandwich (which I love with raspberry jam!). These sandwiches were a big hit with Evan and he really enjoyed them. But, my choice to put a healthy smear of cranberry sauce on them didn’t go over well with the kids, (no sirreeee Bob!) and they had some spaghetti for dinner instead.
Can’t please everyone all the time, ya know.
You may have noticed the gap in prep steps within the series of pictures I used in this post. Yes, there are no pictures in between the smearing of the mayo and the time they come come out of the oven all toasty. Well, I tried to make a brief video (and I actually spoke!) as I layered the ingredients and let’s just say it didn’t go my way.
In other words, I’m a crappy camera person.
Yep, I only had half of a face for the entire presentation! Bad. Live and learn, as they say, and I will try a video presentation again with another dish soon. 🙂
But, believe me, it’s easy enough to layer these ingredients and enjoy some delicious sliders of your own. I just know you will love these cute, little sandwiches too!
