Roasted Turkey Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Sliders are the latest addition to my slider collection.  Now technically, they aren’t a slider, but they look like sliders when they are cut into pieces, so work with me okay?   For me, anything that can easily be served as a small sandwich counts as a slider, and I love making it on a big loaf and cutting into individual pieces, it’s so much faster and I have so many more bread choices this way too.

Enter Friday Night Sliders:

Friday nights continue to be a busy night at our house;  I always have a house full of hungry teenage boys, sometimes it’s only five, and other nights we can have as many as 10 and that’s a lot of kids to feed!   For the longest time we ordered in Pizza, which is pretty expensive, and they got bored with quite honestly.   Then I moved onto buying an assortment of frozen pizza’s, and wings to cook up, which they liked well enough, but it gets old fast.

I had an idea!  I’m always working on developing recipes and who better to taste test for me?   I had a captive hungry audience, who needed to be fed, and I needed what worked and what didn’t.  It was a win win.

Now of course, I wanted something that was easy and fast to make, that would be popular with kids, filling, and not too expensive.  Enter the Friday Night Sliders… and sometime I make pizza, it’s like an open faced slider… remember, you’re working with me here!

  • Sprinkle half the shredded cheese evenly over top of the Turkey Breast
  • Place a thin layer of baby spinach on top of the shredded cheese

  • Wrap the Foccaccia in tin foil and place in the oven.  Heat for 30 minutes, remove from oven, and slice into portion sized pieces.   I generally cut mine into 12 pieces,  but sometimes 9 if I'm serving it as a meal and not a snack or with soup.

  • What temperature for baking the sun-dried tomato sliders? Also in the live I thought you put bacon on them but I don’t see it in the recipe. I’m making them for dinner tonight!
