Gameday Breakfast Sliders

Welcome to week 3 of the 2012 College Football Saturday Tailgate Party! Last week I shared a football craft (an easy DIY team spirit wreath), so this week I’m changing it up with a super tasty sliders recipe. Our Huskers play at 9:00am here (in AZ) sometimes during the season, so we need to do some sort of breakfast tailgating food for those games.  And, what sounds more perfect than some delicious ham, egg, and cheese breakfast sliders?! gameday-breakfast-slidersYUM! Perfect for morning games! These sliders are easy to make, super tasty, and definitely more filling than something like donuts! You can even make them up the night before if you’d like. But, they don’t take long to make at all (20 minutes or less) in the morning. The sauce on top really makes these SO extra good – once they start cooling, the tops of the rolls are just perfection! Mmmmmm!!! egg-ham-cheese-slidersSo, here’s how to whip up a batch of these tasty ham, egg, & cheese breakfast sliders:

These breakfast sliders are a crowd favorite!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12
  • 1 pkg (12 count) Hawaiian Rolls
  • 8 - 10 eggs (depending on egg size & how "eggy" you want your sliders)
  • 6 large slices provolone cheese (thin slices)
  • sliced ham (at least 6 large, thin slices)
  • ¼ Cup butter (melted)
  • 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  1. Scramble up your eggs however you like to do them.
  2. While the eggs scramble, cut the entire package of rolls in half (so you have a sheet of the tops & the bottoms).
  3. Place the bottom sheet of rolls in a pan and top with a thin layer of provolone cheese (I used about two large slices).
  4. Once the eggs are done, cover the cheese layer with the eggs. Then, lay ham slices over the eggs. If your provolone is nice & thin, then you can add two more slices over the eggs and then again over the ham.
  5. Place the top sheet of rolls over the ham.
  6. At this point, either cover and store in frridge/freezer for future use or continue on to finish making...
  7. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, mustard & brown sugar. Stir until well combined (and the sugar is at least mostly dissolved). Then coat the tops of the rolls with the mixture. (I like to use a little pastry brush to make sure I get the tops evenly and a little on the sides).
  8. Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes (until cheese gets nice & melty).
  9. Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes. Then cut, serve, and enjoy!

cheesy-breakfast-slidersThese are seriously SO good – definitely a crowd-pleaser that will be gobbled up in no-time! If you need some other things to go with it, you could try our breakfast tailgating fruit kabobs idea or anything off this list of tasty breakfast tailgate recipes! And, if you’re looking for a slider recipe for any time aside from breakfast, then you HAVE to check out the Coca-Cola BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders (with sauteed apples & onions) that I posted earlier in the week. It’s one of the best things I’ve made in a long time!

      I baked uncovered. Should have clarified that in the instructions. Thanks for asking. Hope you enjoy!! 🙂

    Would like to make night before game and put on grill to warm up. Do you think that will work? I have to travel to the game so it’s hard to make same day.

  2. Kimberly says

    These look great! Do you think they’d be portable enough to do on a grill (or at least reheat)? I’m going to be feeding student athletes in a tailgate situation and these might fit the bill as far as protein requirements from the coach.

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Kimberly! I haven’t tried it, but I bet it could work! I’d still make them in the disposable aluminum pans and just put the pans right on the grill. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work to reheat them! 🙂 Good luck! Let me know how it turns out!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Gina,
      No, hasn’t been an issue. Though I do try to make sure that I don’t over-cook the eggs in the pan! 🙂

    Was wondering if I made these ahead of time could I freeze them and then reheat in an oven or grill later. If so would you freeze after adding the butter mixture or after cooking. Even if you haven’t actually done this what would you think based on having made them before. Thanks for any help. Hoping to put some easy freezer meals and snacks together before school starts.

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Kate,
      I haven’t tried freezing them, but I’m sure it would work. I’d just wait to put the butter mixture on later (to avoid any extra potential for sogginess).

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Absolutely! You’d just want to make sure it’s already cooked. Something like already cooked bacon or sausage patties – or other kinds of deli meats! Yum!

    I tried something different for our Annual Christmas Potluck at work. These were a huge success. I used combination of Ham, Sausage, provolone and cheddar cheese. I also brushed the rolls with melted butter. I had my husband try one without the glaze. He told me to add the glaze. Huge Huge success.

  5. Patti Wissore says

    Just made these for breakfast and the family LOVED them! I made a dozen rolls for 3 people and it may not be enough….(3 teenage girls).
