Leftover Turkey Sliders
This post is sponsored by Pillsbury
I think one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. I love making turkey sandwiches and still being able to stuff my face with stuffing the day after Thanksgiving. In my family, we typically have our dinner in the early afternoon and even though I always feel like bursting afterwards, by the evening, I get a hankering for a little more and a turkey slider is always the answer! I have fond memories standing around the kitchen talking about the day with my family eating our little turkey sandwiches. I’ve never been one for rushing out for Black Friday sales. I much prefer to stay at home in sweats and watching a movie with my family.
I think rolls often get overlooked at the Thanksgiving table. There’s so much food, rolls take a backseat for me. Until the leftovers, that is. Dinner rolls are perfect for making leftover turkey sandwiches! And one of my favorites? Pillsbury Grands!®. Seriously, who can resist all those rich and buttery layers? I remember always peeling them apart, layer by layer when I was younger. While growing up, Pillsbury has been on many a dinner table in my family.
Usually, I just throw on some turkey and some mayo and call it a day, but I wanted to make my annual leftover turkey sliders a little more special this year! First, I baked up Pillsbury Grands!® for the bread and topped my sandwiches with melted Swiss and Gruyere cheese. Then, I spread on a ridiculous amount of homemade cranberry aioli on top! Is it weird that I almost just want to eat these as my actual meal on Thanksgiving?!
- 1 package (16.30 oz) Pillsbury Grands!®
- 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 clove garlic
- about 3 cups of turkey breast, sliced
- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (I used a mix of Swiss and Gruyere)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the biscuits 1 to 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake for 14-17 minutes or until golden brown.
- While the biscuits are baking, prepare the cranberry aioli. Add the cranberry sauce, mayo, and the garlic to a food processor and blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can also mix by hand for a chunkier aioli (mince garlic prior to hand mixing). Set aside.
- Once the biscuits are cooked, remove from the oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes. Switch the oven to Broil. Slice each biscuit in half. Place the bottom half of each biscuit back onto the cookie sheet. Divide the turkey amongst each half of the biscuits. Sprinkle cheese on top of each one. Stick under the broiler for 2-4 minutes or until the cheese is melted. While under the broiler, spread desired amount of the cranberry aioli on each of the top halves of the biscuits. Remove the bottom halves from the oven and place tops back on. Serve.
