Why make individual sandwiches when you can make a whole pan of sliders in the same amount of time? Feed your family with this small batch of sliders or EASILY double it to feed a crowd!
My Simple Turkey Ranch sliders have been a huge hit on my blog since February, and I think it’s because we’re all looking for simple but fun ways to feed our families while everyone is home. Lunch is usually a feast of leftovers at our house, but it’s nice to switch it up and make something new sometimes. Sliders are the perfect solution for that, especially this small batch which makes 12 sandwiches, so you won’t have a ton of leftovers to add to the stash in your refrigerator.
I know what you’re probably thinking: reubens are not made with pastrami. True. But they could be. Pastrami is the same meat as corned beef (most of the time), but pastrami is smoked then steamed whereas corned beef is just steamed/boiled. I was able to find pastrami in a deli container like I would ham or turkey. These are delicious, but you could sub the pastrami for corned beef if you’re a die hard.
Need to feed a few more people? This recipe was made to be doubled if needed. I used a 12 pack of King’s Hawaiian Rolls but you can readily find a 24 pack. The recipe also uses 1/2 container of meat, 1 package of sliced cheese, and 1/2 can (or a small can) or sauerkraut: all easily doubled! You can use store bought thousand island dressing, but it took me less than 1 minute to put together a homemade one, and I always feel better when I can make something myself.
