Turkey and Cheese Sliders

Game Day Grub! We’ve all had those famous ham and swiss sliders on Hawaiian rolls and they’re SO good for a crowd. We put a fun twist on it with homemade aioli, cranberry sauce and turkey (and, this version might even be better than the original!) The perfect snack or lunch for game day and a great option for leftovers after the big Thanksgiving holiday! Lots of ways to jazz this up to your likings, too. A great and easy crowd pleaser!⁣
