Turkey Sliders with Brie, Arugula & Cranberry Chutney
Jorge and I have been eating Turkey every day since Wednesday. At some point I think we might actually start growing some tail feathers. We started Thanksgiving early with his family on Wednesday and then on Thursday I made a 25lb bird for 5 people. That’s right, my mother wanted to make sure we had enough Turkey leftovers until Christmas. 😉
I have already made my all time favorite Thanksgiving leftovers, Turkey Cups (ignore the photos, but if you have half a brain you will make the awesomeness that is Turkey Cups). But considering we still had about a weeks worth of turkey left, I needed to find another way to fancy up some leftover turkey.
Luckily, in my freezer I had some of the new Alexia Sweet Potato Rolls and a whole bag of fresh cranberries. Turkey Sliders were destined to be! After a little googling, I found an awesome recipe from Foodie Bride and changed it up to fit my tastes and what I already had in my kitchen. The Cranberry Chutney is too die for…and I love that it’s more savory than sweet. Then with a few slices of brie and a handful of arugula, you have yourself one hell of a tasty leftover turkey sandwich!
Turkey Sliders with Brie, Arugula and Cranberry Chutney on Sweet Potato Rolls!
recipe note: I used a large sauté pan to make my chutney because it cooks faster. However, feel free to switch it up to a large sauce pan, just expect it to take a little longer.

- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 12 oz bag of cranberries
- 15 dried apricot rounds, chopped

for the cranberry chutney:
In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add onion, cooking for 3 minute for until wilted. Add garlic, cooking for 30 seconds.
Add the remanding ingredients, and stir to combine. Bring to a low boil and cover with lid. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have softened.
