Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders Ingredients

Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Slider raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup salted butter, divided
  • 10 large eggs
  • 16-pack Hawaiian rolls
  • 15 cooked breakfast sausages (they do not need to be preheated)
  • 10 large slices of cheddar cheese (about ¾ pound), divided in half (You will need about 5 slices per layer)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

PRO TIP:

Tillamook’s pre-sliced medium cheddar works great for this recipe. You will need about 5 slices per layer (for a total of 10). The number of pieces of cheese you will need will vary depending on which brand you use and the size of the slices. You can also use grated cheese as it melts easily and quickly.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SAUSAGE: We like to use pre-cooked sausage patties. You can also purchase 2 pounds of raw ground pork sausage and form/cook your own patties, but the pre-cooked kind is fast, does not need to be preheated, and are also perfectly sized to fit one patty per slider.

BUNS: You can substitute bakery dinner rolls for the Hawaiian sweet rolls in this easy recipe. Keep the rolls connected when slicing.

MEAT: Instead of the sausage, you could also opt to top your sliders with crispy bacon instead.

How to Make This Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

STEP TWO: Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. 

STEP THREE: Whisk eggs in a medium mixing bowl until fluffy and combined.

STEP FOUR: Pour eggs into the melted butter and cook over low to medium heat, scrambling the eggs by gently lifting with a silicone spatula until all the eggs are cooked through.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Cooking scrambled eggs slow and low is the key to making creamy, soft scrambled eggs. You can add salt and pepper to taste in your eggs.

STEP FIVE: Place the rolls into a 9×13-inch baking dish and divide/adjust the rolls to fill the casserole dish. Remove the rolls from the pan to slice the tops off the rolls in one connected piece. Place the bottom of the buns back into the casserole dish and set the top buns aside. 

PRO TIP:

I “pre-fit” the rolls in the dish and then slice so I know what’s going where.

STEP SIX: Spread the scrambled eggs over the rolls.

STEP SEVEN: Cover the scrambled eggs with slices of cheddar cheese.

STEP EIGHT: Top with sausage patties – one sausage patty per slider roll.

STEP NINE: Top the sausage patty layer with more cheese slices, and then place the tops of the rolls back into place.

STEP TEN: Melt the remaining butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the maple syrup and whisk the mixture together.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skimp on the butter. It soaks into all the nooks and crannies and adds a ton of flavor to both the top and the bottom half of the slider buns.

STEP ELEVEN: Pour the butter mixture over the rolls, using a pastry brush to spread evenly.

STEP TWELVE: Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes until the cheese melts and rolls are heated through. Remove aluminum foil and bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer until the tops are browned.

How To Serve

These cheesy sausage and egg breakfast sliders are a great idea to whip up for a busy morning when you are on the go. An iced mocha or iced caramel macchiato would complete your breakfast nicely. You could also make a batch of these breakfast sliders when you have a large group of people to feed.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store these egg breakfast sliders in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Freeze sausage egg and cheese breakfast sliders with syrup glaze for up to 1 month. We’d recommend wrapping the individual sandwiches separately so you can easily grab them out of the freezer for a quick breakfast before you start the work or school day.

These savory breakfast sliders are made with simple ingredients and will be a sure hit with your hungry family. The perfect combination of melted butter and maple syrup seeps down into the rolls adding a little sweetness and buttery saltiness to these already delicious sandwiches.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the best buns to use for slider buns?

Sweet Hawaiian rolls are just the right size for this easy breakfast recipe, but any other mini sandwich rolls can be used as well.

Can I use ground sausage instead of sausage patties in this breakfast sandwiches recipe?

If you would prefer not to buy premade patties or can’t find them at the grocery store, you can purchase ground sausage and make your own patties for this recipe.

Can I freeze these sliders?

Breakfast sliders can be kept in the freezer for up to a month. They make a great grab-and-go breakfast option.

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup salted butter, divided
  • 10 large eggs
  • 16 pack Hawaiian rolls
  • 15 cooked breakfast sausages, do not need to be preheated

Place the bottoms of rolls back into the casserole dish and set tops aside. (I “pre-fit” them in the dish and then slice so I know what’s going where.)
