“Friendsgiving,” is the equivalent of a Thanksgiving meal but with friends instead of your relatives. Most don’t realize it’s the perfect opportunity to bring something other than the same ole turkey & stuffing you eat with your fam… hence, the Friendsgiving Sandwich Slider is here!
Some Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving dinners consists of smaller group of people and a whole turkey isn’t practical… buy your turkey meat already cooked and assemble these sandwiches! They are a fun spin on the traditional Thanksgiving food classics, and easy to serve a crowd no matter how big or small.
Every part of the Friendsgiving Slider can be purchased pre-made, or can be made from scratch. I bought everything pre-made except the stuffing, and used the Gluten-Free Stuffing Mix from Trader Joe’s (highly recommend!). If you are vegetarian, these taste great even without the turkey.
