This recipe from Hawaii State FCU for savory Leftover Holiday Sliders is perfect for the holiday season and utilizes all those leftovers from Thanksgiving!

In Hawaii, a basic lunch costs about $15 a person, and dinner for two at a restaurant can add up to $65. Hawaii State FCU is always looking for ways to help people better manage their money which is why it recently launched a new video series called “Bites on a Budget” to give people budget-friendly bites to consider for their next meal.

From free seminars on budgeting basics and credit, to sharing recipes like these, the credit union looks to touch every aspect of its members’ lives and provide meaningful tips that can help them manage money better, save more, and worry less.

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls



1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2) In a bowl, combine the melted butter, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir and set aside.

3) Then you take your rolls, halve them and put the bottom halves in the baking dish. Combine the cranberry sauce and sriracha, and spread a little of the mixture on each roll.

4) Layer some turkey breast, cheese and stuffing then add the top half of the bun. Take the butter mixture you made earlier and pour it evenly over the rolls.
