Cuban Sliders

Blog #43:

Wow! It has been a month since I last posted!  Today my youngest is 1 month old!  Which is why I have not posted.  There has been many sleepless nights for sure!  I have some upcoming blogs on the baby and things I have learned along the way.  Stay tuned!

Anyway, I had been dying to make some sandwich sliders and finally made them!  This was an easy meal to make and went straight into the oven.  I did not want to use pork or ham and ended using what I had in my fridge.  I’d say a bit healthier!


You will need:

  • 12 bun Hawaiian rolls
  • deli turkey
  •  leftover chicken, shredded
  • American cheese slices
  • mustard
  • pickled jalapeños
  • 1 tsb of oregano
  • 1 piece of garlic, smashed
  • the juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 tbs of fresh cilantro
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 tsb of cumin


Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a sauce pan heat up the butter, oregano, cumin, cilantro and lemon or lime.  You want to split the mixture into 3 bowls.  First mixture goes into the shredded chicken.  Put aside.  In a 9×13 oven dish add the 2nd mixture of melted butter mixture.  Enough to spread at the bottom of the dish.  Then slice all 12 rolls together, horizontal and put in the dish.  On the bottom pieces of buns layer the turkey slices, shredded chicken, cheese slices and jalapeños.  Then spread the mustard on the inner top rolls.  Add the top half of the rolls and spread the last mixture on the rolls.

Cover with foil for about 25 min and uncovered for 5 minutes or until toasted.


The slides have a tangy, sweet and spicy taste all at once.  Delicious!  Feel free to add as much or as little of all the ingredients.  I just eye balled everything!

This is a great appetizer for those football nights!!
