The finished product – so delish!

Critic Housewife Turkey (Leftover) Sliders

4 sourdough slider buns

Enough turkey for 4 sliders (1/3 cup for each slider)

1 c chopped cabbage

2 T chopped onion

½ t cumin

½ t lemon pepper

¼ t seasoning salt

1/8 t pepper

2 T roasted bell pepper from a jar

1/3 c Mayonnaise

4 slices cheese of your choice (cheddar is good)

1 T butter


In a large frying pan, cook turkey, cabbage, onion, spices and bell pepper until lightly browned (or to your liking).

Meanwhile, place buns on foil lined baking sheet.

Spread mayonnaise inside all sourdough buns.

Lightly butter tops of buns.

Place one slice cheese on bottom of each bun.

Put equal amounts of turkey on each bun bottom.

Put sourdough bun tops on top of turkey.

Bake sliders at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  The butter on the tops of the buns make the buns crispy and the cheese melts perfectly!


Thanksgiving Menu #thanksgiving

I had a lot of fun looking through these magazines figuring out what new side dishes I was going to make for Thanksgiving.

Here is what I will make:

Turkey (cooked in a roasting bag – it cooks a lot faster using the bag)

Stuffing but not cooked in the turkey


Green bean casserole from The Pioneer Woman or Creamed Peas with Pearl Onions from Bon Appetit

Sweet Potato casserole

Salad with Jacqués Pepin oil and vinegar dressing

Cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries

And for dessert I’m making Saveur’s Fein Tau Weiyema, a Honduran Pumpkin Bread

Bon Appetit!
