Festive Holiday Sliders

Turkey sliders with ginger, horseradish and cranberry sauce refrigerate well, so I keep them ready for get-togethers when we bake gifts and wrap presents. —Pamela Miller, Big Rapids, Michigan

    My family loved this. We toasted our rolls and cut back to half a can of cranberry sauce. It is was a hit!

    Family all thought these were unique and tasty. I cut open my Hawaiian rolls and toasted them cut side up under the broiler beforehand. The recipe made more cream cheese spread than needed but I think it’ll refrigerate fine for making more in a few days.

    As someone who as a child would eat leftovers from Thanksgiving and Christmas with rolls, turkey, mayo, cranberry sauce, etc. mashed into a sandwich, I was excited to see a recipe such as this. Sadly, it did not live up to what my eyeballs pinged with enthusiasm with. I also own a catering business, so pleasing people's taste buds is my business in general. Having followed the recipe to an exact "T", I ended up with a lot of wasted spread (the cream cheese mixture) that nobody will give a second glance to. This was to be lunch for Christmas Eve tomorrow with a family gathering. Now, I'm at a late hour, scrambling to figure something else out to do with my turkey. I use my grown children as guinea pigs for everything I create, including making recipes such as this one. Even I had trouble getting past it. I'm sad to say that I cannot give a better rating. It looks great but the taste appeal didn't equal.
