Turkey 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!

Total time




  • 12 bun Hawaiian rolls

  • deli turkey

  • leftover chicken, shredded

  • American cheese slices

  • mustard

  • pickled jalapeños

  • 1 tsp of oregano

  • 1 piece of garlic, smashed

  • the juice of 1 lemon or lime

  • 1 tbsp of fresh cilantro

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp of cumin


  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a saucepan 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!!
