Comfort food is not always soups and chili. Sometimes comfort food means warm and melty turkey sliders! If you like ham and cheese sliders, you're going to love this take on a classic combination. Melting cheese and warm deli style roasted turkey flavored with mustard and packed between soft and sweet Hawaiian rolls guarantees a delicious meal.
Ingredients to make Turkey Hawaiian sliders
You are only five ingredients away from your new favorite sliders. Here is what you need:
- Hawaiian rolls: You can find these in any supermarket, both in the bread section and in the bakery.
- Whole grain mustard: This is my favorite mustard to use for this recipe. However, you can opt for honey mustard or Dijon mustard if that's what you have on hand.
- Butter: A little bit of melted butter adds so much flavor to this dish.
- Roasted Turkey: Roasted deli turkey lunch meat is the best choice for this slider recipe.
- Swiss Cheese: You can find sliced Swiss cheese in the cheese section of any supermarket.
How to make turkey sliders
Cut the rolls into two slabs. Spread mustard on both slabs and place turkey and Swiss cheese on the bottom slab. Top with the other half of the rolls.
Mix the mustard with melted butter and brush it on the rolls. Bake it and voila, your easy Hawaiian turkey sliders are ready!
I gave some of these delicious Hawaiian roll turkey sliders away to my neighbor because if I kept them we would eat them all by ourselves. That wouldn't be a good idea because, as delicious as these are, there no way that I can justify eating 6 of them back to back. So, my friends, share your food with everyone. As the old saying goes, "whatever you share, multiplies."
Want to elevate this recipe?
- Use any other kind of melting cheese instead of Swiss: cheddar or Gouda would be nice.
- Use honey mustard or Dijon mustard instead of grainy mustard. Here is a list of popular types of mustard that you can use for this recipe.
- In addition to mustard, you can also spread some mayonnaise on the rolls.
- Use sliced cooked turkey breast instead of smoked turkey.
- Add some poppy seeds to the mustard and butter mixture.
To freeze these sliders, assemble them as instructed but don't bake them. Wrap the sliders tightly in a few layers of plastic wrap and freeze for up to two months. When you're ready to bake, unwrap the sliders and place them on a baking sheet and brush them with the butter and mustard combination. Bake at 350ºF for about 25 to 30 minutes until they are warm and the cheese is melted.

So reading through the ingredients and instructions and the mustard quantity differs.
ingredients state 1/3 cup mustard. Yet instructions state TWO different 1/4 cup measures. Last I checked 1/4 and 1/4 = 1/2 cup, not 1/3 cup. So which is it? This is the second recipe today that have had conflicting ingredient/instruction items.
Hi Nicole, it's 1/2 cup mustard. Thank your for pointing it out.
Made these for a game night the other day and they were a hit! Absolutely delicious. Needless to say, I'll be making them very often! Thank you!
Really great sliders recipe. Will be using for all of my holiday parties!

These were super easy to make (as sliders should be) and super yummy! The kids loved them as much as I did, so total win! I used more turkey, I used 1 lb of deli sliced turkey, and I also did half of the sliders with Swiss and the other half with provolone because my son isn't a Swiss cheese fan. Both were delicious! I served these for dinner with a garden salad. Easy dinner, super yummy! Thank you for this recipe, it's a keeper!
Loved this with the ground mustard! Made a huge difference and was a huge hit for lunch! Added a dash of parsley with the melted butter to top rolls:-)
These were really good and easy. I used a combination of mayonnaise and whole grain mustard, and was very happy with it. Even my picky three year old liked them.
Thank you for sharing Mary! Happy to know you like them!
Made these for lunch yesterday- needed some new recipes for the rotation now that we are home more! The whole family loved them!
These are always a huge hit whenever I serve them! Such a tasty recipe!
I love how easy these were to make. Everything in one pan, it's a dream. This has quickly become one of our favorite weeknight meals. I used leftover chicken as well and it was delish. Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe!
Yum! Love the idea of leftover chicken Meagen! These are so good!
I am completely drooling at all of your delicious photos. I'm so anxious to make this recipe for our big game party!
Thank you Renee! Hope you give these a try!
Are the sliders covered with foil before heating? If not, it seems like the bread would be very dry.
Hi Sue, mine doesn't get dry because of the butter and mustard that I brush in the end, but if you're worried that the bread might get dry, feel free to cover them in the beginning and uncover for the last couple of minutes 🙂
Can I prepare night before and bake next day?
Hi Lois, Yes, you can prepare it beforehand and bake it when ready.
The recipe called for 3/4 c of mustard but in 5e directions it says to mix 1/4 c with the mayo and then the other 1/4 c with the melted butter. So where does the other 1/4 c supposed to go? Thx.
Hi Claire, just fixed the card, it's actually 1/2 cup mustard 🙂
Does the original recipe include mayo? The blog post doesn’t mention you adding mayo to anything while making them. Nor did the list of ingredients in the post. However, at the bottom of the page in the print out, it says mayo should be used. I like both mayo and mustard, so it doesn’t make a difference to me. I just want to make sure I make them exactly the way intended to get the right flavor! Thanks!
Hi Mallory! Thank you for your comment. The mayo is listed in the list of ingredients however, the recipe works perfectly without it too. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
Turkey sliders is very easy and delicious food and I really love it.
