- Honey Mustard – Another option would be Dijon mustard.
- Poppy Seeds
Only 3 Easy Steps to Prepare
- Assemble – Slice slider buns horizontally and arrange the bottom of the buns in a 9×13 baking dish. Layer turkey, bacon and cheese on top of the rolls and place tops on buns. Cut in between the slider buns to separate.
- Top – Mix together butter, honey mustard and poppy seeds in small bowl. Brush mixture on the rolls to cover the buns and drip between them.
- Bake – Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Prep Ahead of Time!
One thing that’s great about these little sliders is that you can prep them ahead of time which is great for when you are hosting.
Simply assemble the sliders and mix up the butter sauce, but do not top the buns with the sauce until right before baking.
Cover your casserole pan with the buns tightly with Saran wrap or foil and place in the refrigerator.
Mix together your sauce and a bowl and set aside.
When it’s time to make the sliders simply remove them from the refrigerator while the oven preheats. When the oven is preheated top the buns with buttery sauce and bake. It might take a few minutes longer to bake since they won’t be at room temperature.
Want to prep and freeze these?
Simply assemble the sandwiches, store in airtight container in freezer for up to two months.
When you are ready to enjoy them remove them from freezer and bake at 350 degrees F for about 35 minutes or until they are warm and cheese is melted through.
