“Holy Smokes, Batman! This is SO goooood!” shouted my taste buds as I took the first bite of the turkey slider that I created and prepared for lunch. Once I gobbled down the third one in record time (ha, see what I did there?!), I wished I had at least one or two more. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t have additional bread because in that moment I had no self-control and literally could’ve stuffed myself like a dang turkey!
I had a hankerin’ for caramelized onions. Yep, that’s where it all started. That and the fact that I had a little less than half of a loaf of baguette bread and some extra fresh garlic that needed to be used. Throw in deli peppered turkey and caramelized onion cheddar cheese and oh my…just sayin’.
Ok, ok….the recipe…..twist my full belly…I mean my arm…
Garlic Mayo: 4-5 large cloves fresh garlic and about 3/4 cup mayonnaise. Heat garlic in 1 cup olive until soft. Allow to cool then scoop out garlic (reserving olive oil for later use) and pulse/blend with mayonnaise in food processor until garlic is minced well and mayo is a thinner consistency.
Caramelized Onion: 1 medium yellow onion, sliced, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon butter. Heat olive oil and butter until butter is melted. Add onion and cook on low until onion is very soft and caramelized to a medium brown.
Bread: Slice one-half of a baguette loaf into six to eight 3/4″-1″ thick slices and place on baking sheet. Top half of the bread with small slices of caramelized onion cheddar cheese (from Trader Joe’s) and the other half with equal amounts of deli turkey. I used two slices, pulled them apart and distributed evenly.
Place prepared baguette slices in oven under broiler until cheese is melted and turkey is warm. Add garlic mayo, spicy brown mustard and onions to one side and top with the other side to create a slider.
SO GOOD! Ya gotta try them and let me know whatcha think!
Live Life, Y’all!
