Elevate your thanksgiving leftovers by serving these easy and elegant Cranberry Brie Turkey Sliders. 

Did you overestimate how much turkey to make for Thanksgiving? Now what are you going to do with all the leftovers? I think the best way to use leftovers is to turn them into a completely different meal. Add a few new ingredients with your leftover turkey to create a whole new dish. That’s exactly what I did with these Cranberry Brie Turkey Sliders. They are absolutely delicious and super simple to make…because no one wants to spend a lot of time cooking the day after Thanksgiving.

No leftover turkey? No problem! You can make these with sliced deli turkey as well. Serve Cranberry Brie Turkey Sliders any time of the year for an easy weeknight meal. You can have a little taste of Thanksgiving anytime!

Cranberry Brie Turkey Slider Ingredients

  • Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
  • Leftover turkey slices or sliced deli turkey
  • Cranberry sauce (whole berries or jellied)
  • Brie cheese
  • Butter
  • Dijon mustard
  • Poppy seeds
  • Salt
  • Thyme

How to make Cranberry Brie Turkey Sliders

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the bottom of an 8×11 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Use a serrated bread knife to slice the Hawaiian rolls in half. Leave the rolls attached to each other and cut through as evenly as possible so the top and bottom sections are about equal in thickness.
Place the bottom section of rolls into the sprayed baking dish. 
Evenly place sliced turkey to cover the bottom section of rolls.  

Spread cranberry sauce over the turkey. 
Top cranberry sauce with sliced brie.
Place the top section of buns on top. 

Combine butter, mustard, poppy seeds, and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until fully melted. 
Use a brush to spread butter mixture evenly across the top of all the rolls. The poppy seeds tend to sink to the bottom, so be sure to scrape the bottom with the brush to get them. You can sprinkle extra on the top of the buns if you like more poppy seeds. 
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. 
Remove aluminum foil and bake uncovered an additional 5 minutes. 

Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes. 
Slice carefully into individual sliders. 
Place on a serving tray and garnish with fresh thyme. Enjoy!

 

Tips & Tricks

  • You can use different kinds of mustard such as stone ground, dijon, or regular yellow mustard.
  • Add some dried herbs on top of the turkey layer like thyme, sage, or rosemary for an even more gourmet flavor.
  • Like garlic? Add a little garlic powder to the butter mixture or top with minced garlic.
  • Feeding a crowd? Double the recipe or look for the larger package of King’s Hawaiian rolls in the 24 count pack. Bake a larger batch on a baking sheet and be sure to cover with foil so the tops don’t burn.
