These Breakfast Sliders are a sweet and savory breakfast sandwich that is perfect for serving to a crowd. Made with eggs, sausage, and cheese and baked in a sweet slider bun, these sliders are a fun, handheld way to enjoy breakfast!

Breakfast Sliders, Breakfast Casserole, and Quiche are great dishes to make to serve for brunch, a holiday breakfast, or even tailgating.

I believe it is a fact that eating food with your hands makes it more enjoyable, At least when it comes to party food! For entertaining, nothing beats a simple recipe that everyone loves, especially if it is can be served without utensils!

While I love Homemade Egg McMuffins, when it comes to entertaining for breakfast or brunch, these Breakfast Sliders are a home run!

Slider buns are 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.

These sliders are fun to eat and easy to make and always a crowd favorite! Not only are they great for parties, but they also make a perfect holiday breakfast as well.

How to Make Breakfast Sliders

  1. The first step to making these sliders is to prepare the eggs. You can scramble the eggs in a pan or you can use my trick which makes preparing these sliders SO much easier!

  2. Simply line a 7×11 pan with parchment paper. Whisk up the eggs and bake until set. The eggs will be uniform and fluffy and fit perfectly on the slider buns! It is one of my favorite hacks to making breakfast sandwiches that much easier to make. If you aren’t a fan of the texture of baked eggs, you can scramble the eggs on the stove. Simply add the whisked eggs to a greased skillet and cook over low heat, mixing occasionally,  until they reach a soft set.
  3. Once the eggs are prepared, layer the slider buns in the same pan that the eggs were baked in. The slider buns should fit perfectly into a 7×11 pan.  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. Just be sure to not use breakfast sausage, not Italian sausage!
  4. Next, brush the buns with a combination of melted butter and maple syrup. This addition of the sweet maple takes these sliders over the top!
  5. Then bake the breakfast sliders until the buns are toasted and the cheese is melted. To serve, slice the sliders into individual rolls and let everyone dig in while the sandwiches are warm.

Breakfast sliders are a great way to feed a crowd as part of a brunch for the holidays or just your immediate family on a lazy Sunday morning. We have some great side dish options for brunch, like Easy Breakfast PotatoesFruit Salad, and Egg & Cheese Hash Brown Waffles.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • If you aren’t a fan of maple syrup you can leave that out and just use the melted butter.
  • Play around with the cheese, too. The contrast of sharp cheddar cheese is great when paired with breakfast sausage, eggs, and maple. But Swiss, Provolone, or even a Pepper Jack cheese work well.
  • Make ahead – Assemble the sliders (leave the tops dry) and cover with foil. When ready to bake, brush with the maple butter and bake as directed. They may require a few additional minutes due to the refrigeration.
  • Most packages of sliders will fit perfectly into a 7×11 pan. I prefer Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for this recipe, but any variety of slider buns work.
  • Be sure to use breakfast sausage, not Italian sausage for the best flavor. Feel free to swap out the sausage from bacon. Be sure to cut it into small pieces to make it easier to eat.
  • Breakfast Sliders are best served warm, but can be held at room temperature for up to 2 hours. After that, refrigerate for up to 3 days and toast in the oven until warm to reheat.
