Thanksgiving Recipe: Turkey Sliders with Stuffing and Cranberry Sauce

Turkey Sliders with stuffing and cranberry sauce

If there's one Thanksgiving dish that intimidates me, it's the bird. And, if there's one Thanksgiving dish that doesn't lend itself to being cooking in a tiny apartment and then carried two blocks to a bar for people to eat during a cocktail party, it's definitely the bird. But, a Thanksgiving party of any sort does seem to call for turkey. My solution: sliders.

(Recipe makes 24 2-oz sliders)

Ingredients:

24 Hawaiian rolls, sliced in half

48 oz ground turkey

Half a 14-oz package of stuffing, prepared

Half a can of cranberry sauce (or make it from scratch)

Olive oil

Toothpicks (optional: decorated with washi-tape flags)

Step 01. Shape ground turkey into 24 2-oz patties. Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 02. Cook each patty for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooking throughout.

Step 03. Place patties on bottom buns. Top each with a scoop of stuffing, and spread a bit of cranberry sauce on the underside of each top bun.  Secure each slider with a toothpick.
