Thanksgiving Leftover BBQ Turkey Sliders


  • 1 jar Otamot Organic Essential Tomato Sauce
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup cranberry sauce
  • ⅓ cup molasses
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 2 cups roast turkey, shredded
  • 8 dinner rolls or slider buns, cut in half


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the turkey and dinner rolls in a medium sauce pot. Heat over medium-low heat and stir.  Bring the BBQ sauce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes to combine all the flavors.
  2. Place the shredded turkey in a mixing bowl and add one cup of the prepared BBQ sauce. Stir to evenly coat the meat.
  3. Spoon about ⅓ cup of BBQ turkey onto each dinner roll. Serve with dill pickle slices or additional cranberry sauce on each slider. 

**SPECIAL NOTES – The cranberry sauce adds sweetness to the BBQ sauce and a great tart element.  Feel free to use leftover white or dark meat in the sliders.  If you don’t have leftover dinner rolls, store-bought slider buns work great too.  These sliders would also be great topped with cheese you might have leftover from a cheese platter or a spoonful of warmed leftover stuffing.  This BBQ sauce recipe will make more than you need for the sliders.  The sauce will keep well in the fridge for two weeks.
