Turkey Pesto Sliders


After our family fell quickly in love with the ham and cheese sliders we served at Andrew’s birthday party, I have come to realize what a quick and versatile meal sliders can be.  Turkey pesto sandwiches have long been a favorite of mine, and I have served them at bridal showers and other get-togethers in the form of finger sandwiches.  Here I changed my old favorite up just a bit by putting them on a slider bun, adding provolone cheese and baking briefly.  These make a great party food, but are an equally fabulous quick and easy dinner.  If I have a busy day, I certainly breathe a sigh of relief knowing Ben can have these ready to pop in the oven when I walk in the door.  You can easily adjust the quantity for however many you need to serve.  Oh, and these are great warmed up as left overs!

Ingredients:
6 slider buns
6 slices of turkey deli meat
6 slices of provolone cheese
3 tbsp. pesto
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400˚ F.  Line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat.  Split the slider buns and lay a folded slice of turkey on the bottom half of each bun.  Layer each with a slice of provolone.  In a small bowl, combine the pesto and mayonnaise in a small bowl and mix until blended.  Spread a thin layer of the pesto mayonnaise on the inner side of the top half of each bun.  Replace the top bun over the cheese to assemble the sandwiches.  Brush the tops of the buns lightly with melted butter.  Bake 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sandwiches are warmed through.

    Great idea. Can see this as a good any time dinner, but also something you could make ahead, wrap with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge until guests arrive. Love it. Cheers!

    Love this combo, great post! I haven’t found slider buns in my grocery store though. I posted today about SLIDERS on my blog too, but I made them evil by creating Chicken Fried Steak Sliders…. they were tasty, but next time I’m going to lighten it up and the combo of pesto, provolone and deli turkey sounds delish!!
