Gameday Breakfast Sliders {College Football Saturday Tailgate 2012}

  Welcome to the 2012 College Football Saturday Tailgate Party! It’s week 3 and I’m hoping we can move forward after last week. My Huskers lost in poor fashion to UCLA. How did your team do? Hopefully better than ours! Last week I shared a football craft (an easy DIY team spirit wreath). So, this week I’m changing it up with a recipe. Our game is at 9:00am here, so we needed to do some sort of breakfast tailgating food. And, what sounds more perfect than breakfast sliders?!

YUM! Perfect for morning games. Easy to make, super tasty, and definitely more filling than something like doughnuts! So, here’s how to whip up a batch of these tasty ham, egg, & cheese breakfast sliders…


  • 1 pkg (12 count) Kings Hawaiian Rolls
  • 10 -12 eggs (depending on egg size & how “eggy” you want your sliders)
  • provolone cheese
  • sliced ham (at least 6 large slices)
  • 1/4C butter (melted)
  • 1T mustard
  • 1.5T 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. Cover the bottom sheet of rolls with the provolone cheese (I just haphazardly laid slices all over).

4. Once the eggs are done, cover the cheese layer with the eggs. Then, lay ham slices over the eggs. *Note- it’s easiest to do this with the rolls already in the pan.

5. Place the top sheet of rolls over the ham. Then, cut through all layers to get the individual sandwiches.

6. In a saucepan (or the microwave), combine butter, mustard & brown sugar. Once everything is “melty” & mostly dissolved, drizzle over the tops of the sandwiches.

7. Cover the pan with foil & let everything sit for at least 30 minutes. Can even do overnight & let sit in the refrigerator. Then, bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes (until cheese gets nice & melty)

Seriously, YUM!

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. One of the best things I’ve made in a long time!  Now it’s YOUR turn. I can’t wait to see your football-related fun, food, & creativity!

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

    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.

      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!
