Servings 12 sandwiches
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • ½ stick (55g) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar or honey
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules or powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • cup mayonnaise
  • ¾ pound deli sliced roasted turkey
  • ¾ pound sliced havarti cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C, and grease a 9×9 or 7×11 inch baking pan/sheet (if you don’t have either, then use 9×13).
  • In a small bowl, combine melted butter, Dijon mustard, honey or brown sugar, poppy seeds, minced onion, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Slice the rolls in half using a serrated knife to separate the tops from the bottoms.
  • Over the bottom of the rolls, spread the mayonnaise
  • Then layer half of the turkey, all of the cheese, then the remaining turkey slices. Cover with the top of the rolls.
  • Brush the butter mixture over the tops (or pour it over the rolls), cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the foil, and bake uncovered for 10 more minutes or until done/golden brown. Watch the sliders so they don’t burn.


  • Instead of turkey, these sandwiches can be made with thinly sliced ham or deli-style chicken instead.
  • Can’t Find Hawaiian Rolls? Try using packaged soft dinner rolls instead.
  • A 7×11-inch baking pan is the perfect size for a package of King’s Hawaiian rolls. If you have a standard Pyrex baking dish, it’s probably the right size. You can also bake sliders in a 9×9 pan, you just need to arrange them differently.
  • Switch up the cheese. Havarti goes really well with turkey, but you can use any type of cheese you like. Try Swiss, mozzarella, American, or cheddar cheese instead.
  • Unsalted butter is best, as salted butter can throw off the flavor balance of the sauce.
  • Use a serrated knife. Hawaiian rolls are very soft, so a regular straight knife will crush them. A serrated knife does the best job of slicing through them easily.
  • To make the rolls super simple to slice, place the whole package in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you cut them.
  • To Store: These sliders are best when you eat them shortly after removing them from the oven. If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat in the oven or air fryer, just until they’re warm again.
