How to make them
These sandwiches are full of flavor with a hint of spice from the pepper jack cheese, and the sweetness of the roasted red peppers (one of my favorite ingredients in life).
The Dijon-mayonnaise adds just enough moisture and zing to make these complete.
- Hawaiian party rolls or slider rolls
- Thinly sliced deli turkey
- Sliced pepper jack cheese
- jar roasted red peppers; patted dry and cut to sandwich size if needed
- 1/4 cup light sour cream
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
Prepare sandwich spread ahead of time by combining all 3 ingredients. Cover and refrigerate several hours or over night.
Cut slider rolls in half lengthwise and spread the bottom half with the Dijon-mayonnaise.
Layer on turkey, cheese, and roasted red pepper.
Top with other half of roll and heat in oven for about 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Place a pick through the center and serve on a party platter.
