Hands-on time 10 mins
Total time 10 mins

Serves 4 (serving size: 2 sliders)

Let's face it: You have to have a killer leftover turkey sandwich the day after the feast. If you start with our robust Applewood-Smoked Turkey, you need only a few embellishments--namely the juicy snap of tart apple and the extra layer of smoke from the cheddar--to reach to-die-for status.


  • 8 water rolls or slider buns, halved
  • 4 ounces smoked cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 teaspoons canola mayonnaise
  • 8 ounces sliced leftover Applewood-Smoked Turkey
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced Granny Smith apple
  • 3 tablespoons whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
