Curry Turkey and Brie Sliders

Thanksgiving was last week.  And of course we had leftovers for days.  Because who doesn’t have leftovers on Thanksgiving?  I think leftovers are one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving.  A few years ago, KB took to deep-frying our turkey.  Which I love, because the skin gets so crispy and the inside is so juicy.  I feel like it will be a long time before I roast the turkey in the oven again.  The only bad part is that I can only buy a 15 lb turkey to fry which means there aren’t as many leftovers.

But that’s besides the point.  One of my favorite things to do with turkey leftovers is to make a turkey sandwich.  KB actually got me hooked on sprinkling curry powder on my leftover turkey sandwiches years ago.  So this year, when I decided I wanted to make leftover turkey sliders in the oven, I decided to add a curry-mayo and some melted brie cheese for some extra-goodness.  They were gone in a flash and even got two thumbs up from KB (which isn’t super hard to do, hah).

Anyways, start by mixing the mayonnaise and curry powder in a small bowl.

Slice your Hawaiian sweet rolls in half (it’s easier to leave them all connected together).  Place in a baking dish.  Spread with curry mayo.

Cover bottom with diced leftover turkey.  Layer with brie cheese.  Add sliced sweet onions (optional).

Top with the other half of the roll spread with curry mayo.

Pour melted butter over the top.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 25 minutes.  Check to make sure the cheese is melted and the rolls are toasted.

Serve with cranberry sauce and the rest of the Thanksgiving leftovers and enjoy!

Recipe:

1 package Hawaiian sweet rolls
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tablespoon curry powder
2-3 cups leftover turkey (diced)
1 wheel brie cheese, sliced
sliced sweet onions
1/2 cup melted butter

*optional, add cranberry sauce to sliders.  Or serve on side for dipping.

In a small bowl, mix together the curry powder and mayonnaise.  Slice the Hawaiian sweet rolls in half.  Spread the bottom half with the curry mayonnaise.  Top with diced turkey, sliced brie and sliced onions.  Top with the other half of the rolls spread with curry mayo.  Pour melted butter over the top.  Bake in a 325 degree oven for 25-30 minutes (until the cheese is melted and the rolls are toasted).

Serve and enjoy!
