What are Hawaiian Roll Turkey Sliders?
Before we start making Hawaiian rolls sliders with turkey, I want to to tell you what they are all about! There are a lot of Hawaiian roll slider recipes out there, but this one is a bit different.
How to Make Turkey Sliders with Hawaiian Buns
These baked turkey sliders on Hawaiian rolls are super easy! Here’s how it goes:
- Make mushroom and onion layer. Saute the mushrooms and onions until soft and cooked through.
- Slice the Hawaiian rolls. Perhaps the trickiest part of the recipe! Because we’re cooking these sliders as one huge sandwich, we don’t want to tear apart the rolls. Simply slice them in half down the middle, lengthwise.
- Assemble the turkey and cheese sliders. Place the bottom layer of rolls and top with mayonnaise and mustard mixture. Top with deli turkey meat (I love using smoked turkey, thinly sliced in these warm turkey sliders. Top with the mushrooms and onions, then a layer of provolone cheese. Finally, add the top of the Hawaiian rolls and they are ready to bake!
- Bake the Hawaiian roll turkey sliders until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
