I have to say, I’m a huge fan of Hawaiian roll sliders. I fell in love with them when I first ate a ham and swiss version. They are super easy to make, and absolutely perfect for a crowd. There are so many different versions out there nowadays and there are some seriously awesome recipes out there.

I decided to give my own twist to them using flavors that I love. It starts with a quick spicy mayo. Add a few spices to some mayonnaise and whisk it up. This is spread on the bottom slab of the Hawaiian rolls. Then it’s topped off with layers of pepper jack, turkey, and green chiles. And of course, you wouldn’t have these sliders without a delicious butter sauce!

Do you have to use Hawaiian Rolls for this recipe? Nope! I’ve also made them using my famous homemade rolls and they are pretty delicious too. If you don’t have a slab of rolls that are all stuck together, you just have to slice and assemble them all individually. Not quite as easy or convenient. But it still works!

If you want to make your own Hawaiian Sweet Rolls I have a recipe for homemade ones too. I love the added sweetness in this recipe and it provides a nice balance to all the savory flavors involved in these sliders.

If you can find a cajun flavored turkey at your deli counter, I highly recommend using it in this recipe. It adds some additional flavor and I’m all about those bold tastes so be sure to give it a go if you can swing it! I’ve also been known to use buffalo chicken breast sliced from the deli. Super tasty!

I like this version better than the usual ham and cheese variety. I took them to a neighborhood potluck and everyone raved. Several people asked for the recipe and the entire double batch got eaten. I will definitely make them again! Also, I’m pretty wimpy about spices and I worried a bit when I read the recipe. They are actually very flavorful, but not overly spicy.

Delicious! Needed to bake considerably longer than 10 minutes. Baked about 15 minutes covered, then 10 minutes uncovered.
Making again for a ladies’ game night!

Excellent recipe!

HI!
I am totally enjoying your recipes.
I am wondering if the Southwest Sliders can be made in advance and baked just before serving. Would I just add sauce before baking them?
Thanks
