Short Cut Supper: Turkey Cuban Sliders

During busy weeks Matt and I plan for a few quick suppers – I barley consider it cooking, more like putting together and heating up. But these meals can still be tasty, and when paired with a piece of fruit or a side salad, they can still be relatively healthy. Matt and I frequently make hot ham and cheese sammys (they will probably show up on the blog soon) which were initially inspired by this post but we make them a little simpler. Then I saw these Cuban Rolls and thought I could try my hand at a Cuban version of our favorite sliders.

These were just as quick to pull together as our original ham and cheese sammys with that extra tang from the pickle. We used a nice deli turkey in place of pork as that is what our market had and we felt it was a bit healthier. I like putting a bit of mayo on one side of the bun and mustard on the other then put a small piece of cheese on top of both of those to serve as the glue to keep the sandwich together. These make a nice gooey and flavorful sandwich. Some quick comfort food for a weeknight!


Makes 4 Slides or 2 servings

  • 4 Hawaiian rolls or small dinner rolls
  • 2 tsp mayo
  • 2tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 slices swiss cheese
  • 1-2 slices deli ham
  • 1-2 slices dely turkey
  • 2 tsp dill pickle relish

Preheat the oven to 350F. Slice the Hawaiian Rolls in half and spread ½ tsp of mayo one half of the roll and ½ tsp mustard on the other half of the roll (or your desired amounts of the mayo and mustard). Place ¼ piece of cheese on each half of the bun. Place 1/4-1/2 piece of ham on one half of the roll and 1/4-1/2 piece of turkey on the other half of the roll. Spread ½ tsp of dill relish on each slider. Place the tops on the sandwiches and roll the sandwiches together in tinfoil and bake for 12-15 minutes until they are warmed through and the cheese is melted.
