Game Day Turkey, Pesto, Onion & Cheese Poppyseed Sliders

Last weekend we hosted 16 for the football game playoffs! We had a blast, ate good food, and enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in the Rogue Valley! (You can still enter to win $100 Coca Cola package, here.!)

That’s Maddy. Go – 49ers!

Our guests loved the sliders that we made. This recipe is great because the night before you can prepare them, cover with foil, and store in the fridge until game day arrives!

My hubby was right there in the kitchen with me.

I like it when he cooks alongside me, because there’s a deeper appreciation for the food we’re eating! :) Oh, by the way, one of his favorite kitchen tools is the “electric knife.”

Here’s our iPhone photos of the process:




So as promised to my guests, here’s our easy-peasy slider recipe!

You can only imagine the variety of ingredients to add to “make it your own,” and that’s exactly what we did.

1. One pan – easy! Ham and Swiss cheese.

2. The other – inspired by Costco’s Turkey Provolone Pesto Sandwich, we made my own creation! Turkey, Pesto, Onion & Cheese Poppyseed Sliders!

There are 2 things that I think make this recipe: the Hawaiian sweet rolls, and the sweet poppyseed sauce!

If you decide to make these, make sure and come back and tell me what your favorite creation was!

And, did your guests devour them like mine did? :)

What is your favorite dish that you’ll be making for the Super Bowl this weekend?

    How fun! The sliders look amazing, Sandy! I’ve never had that sandwich from Costco, but your version of it sure looks good! I am serving lots of our favorite appetizers for the Super Bowl, so it’s hard to pick just one. Have fun on Sunday!

    Great idea.

    We make the ham sliders with soup all the time but we do the “sauce” a little differently…Dijon mustard + honey + poppy seeds. Thanks for sharing the turkey sliders recipe, can’t wait to try them!

    I made these last night for dinner and they were a big hit! So warm and gooey. In the future I think I might eliminate the sauce and mix the mustard and worchesterhire into the sautéed onion. It’s a lot of sweetness (and extra calories) especially since the Hawaiian rolls are already pretty sweet themselves. But oh, so good.

    Made these last night for THE big game (Colts vs. Broncos) and they were a hit! I have made the ham and cheese recipe before, we love pesto; gave it a try. They were very good. The sauce is sweeter than the other i have made. I will experiment further. I think I will try with cranberry sauce, a good way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers? Maybe with a Gruyere cheese? What about those new pretzel rolls, hmmm, endless possibilities!
