2. Spread the Cream Cheese

This Brown Sugar Cajun Cream Cheese Spread is OUT OF THIS WORLD! I’ve got the recipe below, but it’s as simple as whisking the ingredients together. Then simply spread half of it over the bottoms of the rolls and the remaining half on the inside of the tops of the rolls (set those aside for now, though).

3. Add Cranberry Sauce

I liked using jellied cranberry sauce from the can for these sliders, but feel free to use whatever version of cranberries you have leftover from your holiday meal. Side note: I didn’t include stuffing in this post; but if you’re itching to add some, on top of the cranberry sauce is a good spot to put it!

4. Layer the Turkey (or Chicken)

Thinly slice any large pieces of meat and layer them evenly over the cranberry sauce.
