Add your favorite cheese, but of course we love the traditional cheddar cheese with apples. But wait, there’s a secret ingredient!

Here’s the ingredient list:

  • Rosemary rolls (or dinner rolls)
  • Leftover turkey
  • Honeycrisp apples, thinly sliced
  • Sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced
  • Mustard (or a jalapeno jelly)
  • Butter

How to make sliders with leftover turkey

Sliders are super easy to make in one pan.

Line a 9×13 pan with foil.

Cut the rolls in half.

The secret ingredients?

Any pepper jam is fantastic with this recipe. We used a jalapeno jelly!

Layer the rolls with mustard (or a jalapeno jelly), turkey, fresh apple slices (leave the skins on), and sharp cheddar cheese.

Bake, and don’t forget the last step: Rub the top of the sliders with butter, and bake an additional 5 minutes, to get the top of the buns toasty!

Hiking just brings out the best in people.

You talk about life, the things that matter.

A quick lunch, then out to the great outdoors!

And it always helps if you start off the hike content with a full tummy (but not too full, of course).
