  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original French Bread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 sage leaves
  • Salt, to taste
  • Cooked turkey, sliced, to taste
  • Cranberry sauce, to taste
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • Watercress or arugula, to taste


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • 2
    Cut Pillsbury™ dough into 10 equal portions. Gently roll each piece into a round shape and place them on a baking sheet. Press down into the center with a stick to make a little cut. Bake for 20 minutes or until they are golden. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Cut in half.
  • 3
    Add butter and sage leaves to a frying pan on medium heat until the butter melts and starts to sizzle. Keep your eyes on it while you move the frying pan around. It will start to brown in a few minutes, don’t let it brown too much. Remove from heat and season with salt. Set aside.
  • 4
    Reheat slices of turkey for a few minutes in the brown butter.
  • 5
    Combine cranberry sauce with cut apples and cook for a little to soften the apple. Set aside.
  • 6
    To make the sliders, add watercress or arugula to the bottom buns. Add a little cranberry sauce. Add sliced turkey and top with bun. Serve immediately with more cranberry sauce and watercress on the side.
