Sandwiches for dinner

It has been a long time since I posted on this blog. It doesn’t’ mean that I have stopped cooking but somehow time is not on my side these days and if I find time on the computer, the last thing I want to do is to type. Yet, I think I have been trying to get many things done around the house including preparing for the new baby…no furniture yet but at least most of the other stuff including clothes…etc. I am blessed with a great family who got me a car seat, a stroller and a small bassinet as their gift…Thanks Mom and Dad. Now, I need to start shopping for a crib and work on painting the room.

My crafts projects are also going slow till a couple of days where I finished some very nice and simple wall art for the children rooms. I shall be sharing this in another post with you. The whole project didn’t cost anything but the frames; which I admit I still have to purchase.
Now back to the kitchen and with my very busy schedule, I found that sandwiches are such a great and satisfying meal especially if you had leftovers for lunch and want to make it up to your family for dinner. These Turkey cheese sliders (you can use any cold cut) just did the trick for me. I hope you can enjoy making them soon.

Turkey and Cheese Sliders
Adapted from the Girl who ate everything

Ingredients:

12 white dinner rolls (I used small buns and little loafs)
12 pieces smoked turkey slices
12 slices of a good melting cheese, I used cheddar but you can use any other kind of cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Poppy seed sauce:
1/2 Tablespoon poppy seeds (You don’t have to use them if you don’t have them. These will add a bit of crunch)
3/4 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 Tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Directions:

Spread mayo onto both sides of the center of each roll. Place a slice of turkey and a slice of cheese inside of each roll. Close rolls and place them into a large baking dish or heavy cookie sheet. Place very close together.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the poppy seed sauce ingredients. Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches or brush. You do not have to use all of the sauce! Just use enough to cover the tops. Let sit 10 minutes or until butter sets slightly. Cover with foil and bake at 175 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes or until tops are slightly brown and crispy. Serve warm.
