I was inspired to bake these in the oven after my friend from our book club made little hamburger sliders this way. It looked so easy when she pulled out a whole pan of burgers from the oven! This is the version that my kids like. One of them doesn't enjoy the buttery onion/mustard topping, so I don't brush all of them with the topping before baking. You could jazz up the filling a little bit by adding additional vegetables, condiments, or toppings before baking, but we usually do that after so everyone can make them just the way they like them.
Baked Turkey Sliders (makes 1 dozen)
12 dinner rolls (I often use the Trader Joe's slider buns or the Kings Hawaiian rolls)
12 slices of deli meat (we use turkey and ham)
12 slices of deli thin cheese (provolone or swiss melt nicely)
1/2 cup butter
2 T sugar
1 T honey mustard
2 T dried onion flakes
1 T poppy seeds
Preheat oven to 400 and lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Place the bottom half of the dinner rolls or buns on the pan. Spread the deli meat and cheese evenly over the rolls. Place the top halves on the bottom halves of the rolls or buns to make sandwiches.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar, honey mustard, dried onion and poppy seeds and stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture has slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Use a brush to brush the tops of the buns with the butter/onion mixture.
Bake until the tops are golden brown and the filling is melty - about 15 minutes.
