Amanda M. Rye

These sweet and savory Breakfast Sliders are made with sweet rolls, eggs, sausage, and cheese and topped with buttery maple syrup for one out-of-this-world breakfast sandwich. 

Whether hosting brunch, serving a crowd for breakfast, or tailgating, these Breakfast Sliders are a delicious portable breakfast that no one can resist.

While I love Homemade Egg McMuffins for an on-the-go breakfast sandwich, when it comes to entertaining for breakfast or brunch, these Breakfast Sliders are my go-to hit a home run.

These Breakfast Sliders are made with slider buns topped with breakfast sausage, eggs, and cheese and then brushed with a maple butter glaze, for a breakfast sandwich that is sweet, savory, and absolutely irresistible.

But beyond being delicious and easy to prepare, just like Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms and Bacon Wrapped Dates, these breakfast sliders can be enjoyed without utensils, which makes them perfect for serving when you want to encourage mingling at a party or when for tailgating.

Bottom line, Breakfast Siders are fun to eat, easy to make, and always a crowd favorite!

Notes on Ingredients

  • Slider Buns: I prefer Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for this recipe, but any variety of slider buns works.
  • Eggs: For a layer of scrambled/baked eggs. Don’t miss my hack for baking eggs–it makes assembling these breakfast sandwiches so easy!
  • Sausage: Be sure to use breakfast sausage, not Italian sausage for the best flavor, I highly recommend using my recipe for Homemade Breakfast Sausage. Feel free to omit the sausage or use ham or Canadian bacon in place of the sausage.
  • Cheese: The contrast of sharp cheddar cheese is great when paired with breakfast sausage, eggs, and maple. But Swiss, Provolone, or even Pepperjack cheese work well.

How to Make Breakfast Sliders

  • Prepare Eggs. While you can scramble the eggs in a pan, I highly recommend using my trick of baking eggs in the same pan in which you will bake these sandwiches, making this process much easier. To do this, whisk the eggs with cream and seasonings, pour into a pan lined with parchment paper, and bake until set. The eggs will be uniform and fluffy and fit perfectly on the slider buns.

  • Assemble Breakfast Sliders. Once the eggs are prepared, layer the slider buns in the same pan that the eggs were cooked in. Top with the eggs, crumbled breakfast sausage, sliced cheese, and slider tops. I prefer to use homemade breakfast sausage and sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use any breakfast sausage and cheese you like.

  • Brush with Maple Butter. Once your sliders are assembled, combine melted butter with maple syrup and brush the top of the buns with maple butter. This addition of the sweet maple takes these sliders over the top!

  • Bake. Bake the breakfast sliders until the buns are toasted and the cheese is melted.
  • Serve: To serve, slice the sliders into individual rolls and let everyone dig in while the sandwiches are warm.

Tips for Serving

Breakfast Sliders are best served warm but can be held at room temperature for up to 2 hours. After that, refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days and toast in the oven until warm to reheat.
