For some, turkey leftovers are loved even more than the Thanksgiving meal itself. This leftover turkey sandwich recipe will show you how to take leftovers to the next level.
You probably already have the ingredients in your refrigerator from dinner. Use this recipe as a guide, not a rulebook. Get creative, make it your own.
Easy Leftover Turkey Sliders
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease an 11x8-inch baking dish.
In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese and sweet potatoes until smooth.
Cut each roll horizontally in half. Place 1 slice of cheese (cut to fit roll) on each bottom half. Divide stuffing into 6 portions (about ¼ cup each); pat each portion into a patty to fit roll, and place on top of cheese. Divide cream cheese mixture evenly among sliders (about 1 tablespoon each); top each with 1 ounce turkey. Cover with top halves of rolls, and place in prepared pan. Brush melted butter on top of sliders. Cover with foil.
Bake until heated through, 25 to 30 minutes. Top each slider with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce. Serve immediately.
Don't have all that? No problem! Customize this sandwich with whatever leftovers you have on hand. Substitute mashed sweet potatoes with regular mashed potatoes, yams or butternut squash. Use the cheese of your choosing and your favorite roll.
