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?! YUM! 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!!! So, here’s how to whip up a batch of these tasty ham, egg, & cheese breakfast sliders:
- 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
- Scramble up your eggs however you like to do them.
- While the eggs scramble, cut the entire package of rolls in half (so you have a sheet of the tops & the bottoms).
- Place the bottom sheet of rolls in a pan and top with a thin layer of provolone cheese (I used about two large slices).
- 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.
- Place the top sheet of rolls over the ham.
- At this point, either cover and store in frridge/freezer for future use or continue on to finish making...
- 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).
- Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes (until cheese gets nice & melty).
- Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes. Then cut, serve, and enjoy!
These 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!
