Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders

When chatting with a girlfriend who has sons who played football through college, she raved about some breakfast sliders she ate at a tailgate. Ham, eggs, cheese and spinach were all in that version, and I immediately knew my family would also be fast fans of this better than McMuffin breakfast.

How to Make Breakfast Sliders

Of course, these sliders are very adaptable. I’ve seen them made with pan scrambled eggs instead of baked scrambled eggs, all sorts of meats and cheeses, plus bonus layers like the spinach I forgot to include! Here are a few tips:

  • Bake or scramble your eggs. And feel free to use a dozen eggs instead of 9 if you’d like, but you will need to up the baking time a bit if you bake them in a sheet pan.
  • Cooked and crumbled bacon or sausage are also great alternatives to ham.
  • Any good melty cheese will work like cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack or Cojack.
  • If you don’t want to drizzle with the butter mixture in the recipe, making garlic butter instead would be delicious!
  • PRO-Tip: Did you know you can make these breakfast sliders ahead and freeze for later? Just pop them into a freezer Ziploc bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze for up to 3 months.
  • To serve, just bake frozen sliders for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
