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.

  1. wow Those sliders look absolutely mouthwatering with the savoury filling and those extra poppy seeds atop make them even more prettier! Happy Easter, Liz!

  2. Would be perfect right now! I think I even saw mini 4-packs of the rolls at Walmart recently. Happy Easter Liz-enjoy:@)

  3. Liz, you have us drooling this morning. Can’t even remember the last time we had a good slider and a breakfast slider is a brillant idea. Make ahead ideas are always welcome. Wishing you a super week. Take Care.

  4. These buns look so soft. Love to dig in too! xoxo

  5. I’m loving everything about these breakfast sliders. And that they can be frozen. Pinning this one.

  6. What a great way to feed a crowd! Love it.

  7. Awesome sliders! If course I would have to eat a couple of the rolls first just to make sure they were o.k. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. We gotta try these and include the spinach lol ! Btw was the spinach wilted first?
    These are indeed fantastic for family gatherings as they can be also prepared the night before, and put in the oven just before the party starts.
    Excellent versatile recipe Liz!

  9. These would be perfect with leftover ham when having house guests. They could be prepared the night before, wrapped tightly and heated and served the next morning once everyone was up.

  10. Liz, this is breakfast perfection! My kids would be jumping of out bed for these sliders!

  11. I don’t get your instructions on how to “cut the eggs in half” and layer over the provolone. When do you add it to the rolls. Do you lay out the slices of provolone and fit the eggs to it then put on top the bottom half of rolls? Do you just layer everything. I just don’t get your instructions. Sorry.

    • Hi, Susan,

      Sorry for the confusion. I will rewrite the layering instructions.

      First, place the bottom part of the rolls in a baking dish.
      Then layer half the Provolone over the rolls.
      Next, add the cooked eggs. Mine were about twice the size of the rolls, so I cut them in half and placed the two thin layers of eggs over the provolone.
      After that, I layered the ham, then the rest of the Provlone, and finally the top half of the rolls.

      Does that make more sense? I apologize for not making it clear enough ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Please disregard my last comment. I get it now. Sorry.
