Leftover Thanksgiving turkey gets a delicious makeover into Creamy Artichoke Dip Turkey Sliders.These sliders are delicious with chicken too. A party favorite!
Inevitably and luckily, we always have leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. Probably that is because we make 2 turkeys each holiday. One goes on the grill for a deliciously smokey turkey. Another roasts in the oven because in our house leftovers are king. And the out of town guests love taking home some of the turkey day feast. This year I will combine three favorite recipes into one. Creamy artichoke dip + leftover turkey + sliders = Creamy Artichoke Dip Turkey Sliders the day after Thanksgiving.
We are lucky that our Thanksgiving holiday is not just a 1 day event. Fortunately, our guests stay 3, 4, 5 and up to 7 days. That means that a lot of eating (and drinking) goes on in our home. As I was conjuring up new recipes to use the Thanksgiving leftovers, the idea of sliders and a favorite creamy dip came to mind. Creamy Artichoke Dip Turkey Sliders are a perfect make ahead snack or meal.
the ingredients in turkey sliders
- Cooked turkey ~ Cooked chicken can also be used. I find that it is best to shred the meat into bite sized pieces.
- Artichoke hearts ~ Make sure to purchase the ones that are canned in water and not marinated.
- Mayonnaise ~ Adding creaminess and a binder, mayonnaise holds all the ingredients together.
- Parmesan cheese ~ Sharp and nutty Parmesan cheese adds a distinct flavor to the sliders.
- Kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika season the creamy turkey mixture.
- Provolone cheese ~ Slices of provolone cheese add extra cheesiness to the sliders.
- Slider rolls ~ These Sara Lee rolls are a my favorite brand for this slider recipe.
- Salted butter
chef cooking tips for turkey sliders
- It is easy to mix up the filling for the sliders. In a large bowl combine the shredded turkey, chopped artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, shredded Parmesan cheese, and seasonings. Stir to combine the ingredients making sure everything is incorporated.
- The recipe makes a large batch of 24 hearty turkey sliders. It’s enough to serve a crowd. Therefore, use a half sheet pan sized baking sheet or 2 smaller ones to assemble the sliders. Slice the slider rolls horizontally trying to keep the tops in one piece and the bottoms in one piece. Lay the bottoms in the baking sheet.
- Next, evenly spread the Parmesan dip and turkey filling on the bottoms of the rolls. Top the filling with the slices of Provolone cheese. Then place the tops of the rolls over the cheese. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter. Then cover the whole pan with foil. The sliders can be refrigerated up to 24 hours or baked immediately.
Creamy Artichoke Dip Turkey Sliders are a delicious way to serve leftover Thanksgiving turkey. So much so that they will be gobbled up before anyone even knows that they are enjoying leftovers from the Thanksgiving feast.

These sliders are a delicious way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Or try these with chicken too. The shredded turkey is combined with creamy artichoke dip ingredients for a tasty filling. Sandwiched between layers of dinner rolls and baked in the oven for warm cheesy goodness. A party favorite!
6 cups of cooked and shredded turkey
1 (15 ounce) can of artichoke hearts, chopped
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
24 slider rolls
12 slices of Provolone cheese
3 tablespoons of butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl combine shredded turkey, artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Stir to make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Slice the rolls horizontally separating the tops from the bottoms. If the rolls are attached, there is no need to separate them. Place the bottoms on a large baking sheet (18 inches x 20 inches). 2 smaller baking pans can also be used in place of the large one.
Evenly spread the turkey filling over the bottoms of the rolls.
Top the filling with the Provolone cheese. Place the tops on the sliders.
Brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter.
Cover the sliders with foil. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes. Uncover the sliders and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cut between each slider roll if necessary. Serve immediately.
If the sliders are made in advance and refrigerated, add about 10 to 15 minutes to the cooking time.
