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.

Call me a stickler, but the print recipe suddenly includes a lot of mayonnaise, a sixth ingredient.. At first I was excited to find a recipe that didn’t use mayo then was disappointed. Sounds good otherwise.
Hi Diane, you can leave out the mayonnaise and use more honey mustard 🙂 Enjoy!
Could you make these with dinner rolls instead of Hawaiian? What flavor would be missing?
Hi Leila, if your dinner rolls are soft, you can absolutely use them. Hawaiian rolls are used for their softness and sweetness. Enjoy!
Would it be ok to use a real smoked turkey breast that my friend smoked for me ?
Hi Barbara, that works perfectly 🙂
Can you replace the Swiss with provolone or white American?
Hi Janet! Sure, you can use any melting cheese!
These are way more scrumptious with some horseradish mixed in with the mayo!!
That's right Mose!
By looking at the picture, it looks like there are poppy seeds on top. I did not see that in the list of ingredients. Am I mistaking it for something else?
Hi Rebecca, it's whole grain dijon mustard on top 🙂
U think this is ok to make ahead (day before party) and then microwave day of? Or would the bread get soggy?
I would avoid doing that if possible. You can go ahead and assemble the sliders and cover and refrigerate until you're ready to bake them. 🙂
So this is probably a dumb question. But when you say to spread the 1/4c mustard on both sides, you just mean the top and bottoms of the rolls, right? I just wanted to make sure! 🙂
Hi Sarah! I'm always happy to answer questions! By that I mean spread the mustard on the inside of top and bottom rolls, and then later we spread some on the outer part 🙂
Can they microwaved for a pot luck?
I would suggest you microwave them in a microwave safe container with a lid on 🙂
These will be great for my football play-off party!
Thanks Dorothy! We love this!
What is the stuff on the top of the bun?
Butter and mustard 🙂
These look fantastic, but we don't like mustard. Is there another condiment we could use? Thanks!
Hi Jean, sure, if you don't like mustard just go with mayo and maybe some horseradish if you like the flavor. I hope you like it!
Sorry if this is a dumb question but where do you get your roasted Turkey? Is it like sandwich turkey meat?
Hi Kami! No question is dumb! Yeah exactly, the turkey sandwich meat and I'm sure almost every super market has it in the deli section!

How about using using your leftover roaste Ed turkey?
It can work 🙂 Hope you enjoy 🙂
That looks absolutely amazing!

Love these sliders! Turkey and swiss are a perfect combination for comfort and for sliders that I will not be sharing. Just eating the whole pan by myself!
I almost had it all myself 😀
Soooooo good! Oh ma gaaad. First time ever leaving a review...but I had to! I shredded the turkey and sautéed it in garlic and white wine first and then followed directions(added poppy seeds to butter mixture to brush on. Thank you 🙂
