Creamy potato salad
Planning to serve your turkey sliders at a picnic?
A creamy potato salad will go superbly alongside them.
I like using red waxy potatoes because they have a creamy consistency but a firm texture, so they won’t get mashed up easily.
An important quality if you’re going to be on the move with the salad!
Don’t expect this creamy red potato salad to last long on the table.
These fried mushrooms are an excellent and unique side dish to go with your turkey sliders.
They’re extra crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Plus, they’re easy to make – this dish involves dipping your mushrooms in buttermilk and then dredging them in seasoned flour.
No batter to make = less mess.
These buttermilk-fried mushrooms are so irresistibly good that you might finish a whole batch yourself.
Whether it’s November or not, make your turkey sliders feel like a Thanksgiving meal with this cranberry relish.
It’s easy to make and adds a gorgeous red hue to your sliders.
This relish’s sweet and tart flavors give a tasty contrast to your mild turkey sliders.
Serve this cranberry relish on the side or inside your turkey sliders to get that delicious flavor combination in every bite.
Potato chips are the go-to side dish for sandwiches and sliders.
But why not switch things up and whip up these trendy pasta chips instead?
They’re extra crunchy, maybe even crunchier than your typical potato chips.
You can also flavor them with whatever herbs and seasonings you prefer – if you want a spicy kick, add chili oil to your seasoning.
And the best part?
You won’t have to deep-fry anything with these air fryer pasta chips.
Pesto pasta salad
Make your turkey sliders a heartier meal with a generous serving of this pesto pasta salad on the side.
If you love zesty flavors, this salad is right up your alley.
The pistachio pesto is packed to the brim with citrusy lemon goodness, which gives your pasta salad a bright and refreshing taste.
This lemony pistachio pesto pasta salad will have you coming back for more.
Planning what dishes to serve at your party?
These onion rings should be on the top of the list.
They are simply delightful treats, with a salty, addictive crispy crust and a touch of sweetness from the onions.
Your guests can quickly demolish a whole tray of these onion rings, so better make an extra batch.
Homemade BBQ baked Beans
Cooking for a large crowd?
You can’t go wrong with a meal of turkey sliders and Boston baked beans.
You can easily make big batches of both dishes, and people can use the sliders to mop up all the tasty bean sauce (so less washing up for you!).
How Sweet Eats’ recipe will give you baked beans with the perfect balance of sweet, smoky, and spicy flavors.
This broccoli salad is light and refreshing, and won’t overwhelm your turkey sliders.
This salad features various crisp vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, and carrots) that provide a delectable contrast to your soft turkey sliders.
And it’s covered in a finger-lickingly good honey-mustard dressing.
This healthy broccoli salad will look amazing on your table.
Sweet potato wedges
These sweet potato wedges are a must-have for game day parties.
I’m not going to pretend they’re super crispy (sweet potato never is!), but they have an irresistible sweet and savory flavor combination.
And because they’re baked, they’re healthier than the usual deep-fried ones you get from the restaurant.
Pssst… These sweet potato wedges pair superbly with chipotle mayo.
Are you having turkey sliders for dinner?
Complete the meal with a heaped helping of this comforting spinach gratin.
It may not look like much, but would you believe this dish uses over three pounds of leafy spinach?
This way, you get the perfect ratio of cheese to spinach.
You won’t have any leftovers from this spinach gratin (and if you do, they’re great in an omelet).
Nashville hot fried pickles
Looking for a unique snack to add to your game day spread?
Give these jazzed-up pickles a try.
If you think tangy pickles covered and fried in a crunchy batter sounds good, wait until you try them with the spicy Nashville hot sauce. It’ll take your pickles to the next level.
Enjoy these Nashville hot fried pickles with your equally scrumptious turkey sliders (and a cooling dipping sauce).
Mexican corn ribs
These corn ribs make for an excellent side dish to turkey sliders.
They’re like your average corn on the cob, except smaller and easier to eat.
In terms of flavors, you can keep it simple with garlic powder and cayenne.
Or, you can take inspiration from Mexican cuisine and flavor them with classic elotes (Mexican street corn) flavors like cotija cheese, sour cream, jalapenos, and lime.
These Mexican corn ribs will be a massive hit at your barbecue party.
Sheet pan nachos
Got the hosting duties for your game day party?
Satisfy your guests with turkey sliders and these sheet-pan nachos.
Aside from the beef, everything comes together in one pan (hence the name). And then your guests can serve themselves.
These sheet pan nachos are a low-effort but fun dish for groups and parties.
Grilled fruit kabobs
Serving turkey sliders at your barbecue party?
Make some space on your grill for these grilled fruit kabobs – they’re an excellent accompaniment to turkey sliders.
The sweet, but acidic fruit works really well with the meat (especially the pineapple).
And if you want a spicy twist…
Follow Miss Allie’s Kitchen’s lead and brush your fruit kabobs with a honey and cayenne pepper glaze for added zing.
If you want a more savory flavor, try these pineapple eggplant skewers.
Fried shrimp balls
Add a delicious Asian flair to your turkey sliders with a serving of these fried shrimp balls.
They’re a popular Chinese appetizer that anyone will love, regardless of age.
It’ll actually be hard to find someone who doesn’t like these crunchy, fried treats!
These fried shrimp balls are best enjoyed fresh off the fryer and with a chili dipping sauce.
