Turkey Feta Sliders

Sliders are a great party food. When I have a large group of friends over I often make different types of sliders so people can have something they like. These turkey feta sliders are not just tasty, but super easy to make as well.

This recipe follows a similar format to my other slider recipes like cheddar and roast beef or the popular ham and cheese. The one main ingredient all of these tasty little sandwiches have in common is fluffy King’s Hawaiian bread. You can find this bread in most supermarkets in America.

How To Make Turkey Feta Sliders

The key ingredient to all the best slider recipes is King’s Hawaiian bread. I know this sounds like an opinion, but trust me, it is the ideal slider bread. Why? Well, it comes in a segmented loaf which makes cutting your tasty warm sliders super simple.

spreading thousand island sauce on the bread

Use a bread knife to slice the bread into a top and bottom half. I always put spread on the bottom no matter the recipe. In this case, for turkey feta sliders I use thousand island dressing. If you don’t like thousand island, you can of course change to a spread that you like.

layering smoked deli turkey on the bread

Up next layer down about 8oz (about 225 grams) of deli turkey. I am using some thinly sliced applewood smoked turkey for these sliders, but you can use whatever turkey you like. I suggest layering them by folding them as I show in the picture above.

putting thin sliced shallot on the Turkey Feta Sliders

Next step is to add some thinly sliced shallots. I think shallots pair well with the smoked turkey and the feta and overall add a nice flavor to the sliders. You can use thinly sliced red onion if you cannot find shallots, but note that they are not as sweet.

adding the feta to the sliders

The last thing to add to these turkey feta sliders is of course the feta cheese. I opted to use feta crumbles for these sandwiches but you can just buy a block and slice it if you prefer. Right on the cheese I crack some salt and black pepper before covering with the top layer of bread.

brushing melted butter over the king's hawaiian rolls

Melt a little butter in the microwave and brush it on the bread. This will help the next ingredient stick to the bread while it goes back in the oven to bake.

The last ingredient that makes up these little turkey feta sliders is some oregano. It’s funny, I didn’t intend to make a super Greek inspired slider. But after I put it all together I realized that with the feta, oregano and shallot/red onion it is pretty Greek inspired.

How Long To Bake King’s Hawaiian Sliders?

Baking sliders follows a pretty simple rule. 175c (350f) for 15 minutes. Because the bread is already cooked we only put the sliders in the oven to heat everything up together, and maybe melt the cheese a little. Of course, feta isn’t a melty cheese so don’t expect it to start dripping off the sides.

Once the sliders are done baking just take them out and cut them along the predetermined lines. That’s why King’s Hawaiian is pretty much the optimal slider bread. From start to finish this recipe takes just around 20 minutes. And you can scale it up very easily! Have a party of 20 people? Just quadruple this recipe.
