    Scrumptious Turkey Club Mini Sandwiches for the Whole Family

    Our Turkey Club Mini Sandwiches have become the latest obsession in my household! Imagine the perfection of golden Hawaiian rolls brushed with a delectable butter and Parmesan mixture, filled with layers of savory turkey, crispy bacon, melted cheese, and finished with fresh tomato and lettuce. These bite-sized delights are not only incredibly tasty but also a breeze to whip up!


     

    Creating these scrumptious turkey and cheese mini sandwiches is both entertaining and simple! Begin by slicing a 12-pack of Hawaiian Rolls horizontally, then place the bottom half in your baking dish to start your slider assembly.

    Spread on some mayonnaise, pile on the turkey, bacon, and cheese, then give the rolls a light brush with butter on top before baking. Once the sliders have been warmed through and the cheese has melted, it’s time to garnish with crisp lettuce, onions, and ripe tomatoes before serving. The beauty of this dish is in its construction – like a giant sandwich that can be easily torn into individual servings. Effortless and fun!

    It’s tough to choose whether these sliders shine brightest as a quick family meal or as the star of a social gathering. One thing is certain, I’ll just have to keep rustling them up until I can decide!

  • Lettuce – A bed of shredded curly or green leaf lettuce provides a crunchy, fresh element to these sliders.
  • Tomatoes – Slice up some Roma tomatoes for a burst of juicy goodness.
  • Red Onion – A sweet onion can also be used if preferred.

  • Don’t forget to check the recipe card at the end of the post for the complete list of quantities and ingredients.

    Recipe Variations

    Enjoying this recipe? If you’re looking for some creative tweaks to mix things up, here are some quick suggestions for you.

    • Ham & Cheddar Sliders – Swap the turkey for slices of ham, skip the bacon, and use cheddar instead of Colby Jack for a delightful ham and cheese take on these sliders.
    • Dairy-Free Turkey Club Sliders – Eliminate the Parmesan and brush the rolls with olive oil or a dairy-free butter alternative. Inside the buns, either omit the cheese or opt for a vegan/dairy-free cheese alternative.
    • Leftover Turkey Sliders – Put your leftover holiday turkey to delicious use by slicing or shredding it and using it as a replacement for the deli turkey in these sliders.

    Helpful Hints for the Recipe

    1. Slice the rolls before you dish out – Pre-cutting the rolls makes it a breeze to grab and go with individual sliders.
    2. Adjust quantity as needed – Easily alter the recipe for fewer people by halving the ingredients, or multiply them to cater to a larger gathering.

    Quick Tips for Even Faster Prep

    In a rush? Here’s how you can put this recipe together in no time!

    • Opt for precooked bacon – Grab precooked bacon slices from the store as a time-saver, or you could even go for bacon bits if preferred.
    • Pick up a bag of pre-shredded lettuce – Bypass the washing and shredding and choose a bag of ready-to-use lettuce.
    • Get a head start – Assemble your sliders up to 48 hours in advance right until you need to bake. Just keep the veggies separate and refrigerate. When ready, bake, top with veggies, and voilà!
