Instructions

Ingredients

  • Hawaiian rolls (12 pack)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk or heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • Slices of cheese (cheddar or your favorite)
  • Breakfast sausage or bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Maple syrup (optional)

Steps


  1. Prep the Rolls: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Cut the Hawaiian rolls in half horizontally.



  2. Cook the Eggs: Whisk together the eggs, milk or cream, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a greased baking pan and bake for 13-16 minutes or until set.



  3. Cook the Meat: While the eggs are baking, cook the sausage or bacon in a skillet until fully cooked and crispy. Crumble or cut them into pieces.



  4. Layer Ingredients: Once the eggs are set, cut them into rectangles. Place the bottom halves of the rolls in a baking dish, layer with scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon pieces, and cheese slices.



  5. Top Off: Put the top halves of the rolls back on. Mix melted butter with maple syrup in a small bowl. Brush this over the tops of the rolls for a sweet glaze.



  6. Bake Sliders: Cover the dish with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the tops are golden brown.


Enjoy your delicious breakfast sliders!

Recipe Variations & Serving Suggestions

Swap the Meat: Instead of sausage, try using bacon, ham, or even plant-based options. Cook the meat thoroughly before adding it to the sliders.

Cheese Choices: Cheddar is a classic, but feel free to experiment. Swiss, mozzarella, or pepper jack can add different flavors.

Egg Styles: You can prepare the eggs in various ways. Scrambled, fried, or even an omelet style can work well.

Add Vegetables: Incorporate vegetables like spinach, bell peppers, or onions. Sauté them before adding to the sliders.

Bread Options: While Hawaiian rolls are popular, whole wheat, brioche, or even English muffins can be used.

Serving Suggestions

  • Dipping Sauces: Serve with ketchup, hot sauce, or a homemade syrup glaze made from butter and maple syrup.
  • Sides: Pair your sliders with home fries, fresh fruit, or a small salad.
  • Drink Pairings: Orange juice, coffee, or a smoothie can complement the meal perfectly.
