Turkey Pesto Sliders

Sliders are one of those categories of foods that is just fun to eat. I’d rather eat 2 or 3 small sandwiches than one big one any day. I’m not sure Mike agrees with me on that point, but regardless, he absolutely loved these turkey pesto sliders. We’re both big fans of anything involving basil or pesto, so I knew these sandwiches would be a big hit. They’re really simple to make – so simple that you have a hard time believing just how good they taste.

I made these sliders for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette party and everyone loved them. Friends kept asking me how I made them, and then couldn’t believe it when I told them how easy they are. They make a great party food – either as an appetizer or part of a light meal. You can even assemble the sandwiches ahead of time and then just bake them right before serving. Paired with a salad or other side, these make a great lunch or dinner as well. I have a feeling these sandwiches will be a summer staple in our house!

Turkey Pesto Sliders


6 slider buns
6 slices of turkey deli meat
6 slices of provolone cheese
3 Tbsp pesto
3 Tbsp mayonnaise


Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat. Split the slider buns and lay a folded slice of turkey on the bottom half of each bun. Add a slice of provolone on top of the turkey. Spread a small amount of both the mayonnaise and the pesto on the inner side of the top half of each bun. Replace the top bun over the cheese to assemble the sandwiches. Bake 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sandwiches are warmed through. If you find the tops of the buns are getting too crusty in the oven, you can brush them with melted butter before baking.
