I love a mini sandwich, I just think they’re so fun! Italian Hawaiian Roll Sliders and Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteak Sliders are always a hit around here, but they’re not exactly breakfast sandwiches. So, naturally, coming up with delicious breakfast sliders was the only solution.

This breakfast sliders recipe has become one of my favorite ways to serve breakfast. And not just as an easy way to serve Sunday brunch crowds, or weekend overnight guests. These babies are a favorite around here all week long!

King's Hawaiian rolls, shredded cheese, ground sausage, sliced cheese, shredded cheese, poppy seeds, maple syrup, scrambled eggs, and melted butter.
  • Hawaiian sweet rolls – Soft, fluffy, and delicately sweet rolls that come in sheets of 12 and can be pulled apart. Cut the sheet in half crosswise (separating the top and bottom halves).
  • Cheddar cheese – You’ll need both sliced cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Eggs – I use about 12 large eggs which works out to about 1 egg per slider. If you want to use a few more, go for it. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Breakfast sausage – Cook and crumble your favorite kind of breakfast sausage.
  • Maple syrup – Along with the melted butter, it is brushed overtop the buns before baking which adds a bit of extra sweetness, a golden sheen, and something for the poppyseeds to stick to.
  • Butter – Melted butter and syrup make the best glaze for the top buns and a sauce for dipping! Use salted or unsalted butter.
  • Poppyseeds – A fun way to finish the breakfast sliders with a crunchy garnish.

Step 1: Layer bottom buns. Slice the buns in half and place the sheet of bottom half of the rolls in a 9×13 cookie sheet or baking dish.

Step 5: Cover and bake. Cover the dish with foil and bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the cheese is melted.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy. Serve with fresh squeezed orange juice and the rest of the melted syrup and butter for dipping. Let’s call it the breakfast version of the crowd favorite French dip sliders!

Pro Tip:

Make ahead breakfast sliders to go! Assemble the sliders and wrap them individually in foil. This way you can travel with them or pop them in a Ziploc bag and put them in the fridge. Then, bake them wrapped in the foil when you’re ready. Make an opening at the top of the aluminum foil to provide some air as it bakes. This is great for easy cleanup.


Refrigerator: Store the leftovers by covering the dish tightly with plastic wrap, or transerring to an airtight container, and storing in the fridge for up to 2 days.

How to Reheat: Heat the sliders in the microwave for 10-20 seconds. You can also use the oven at 350° F for 10 minutes or until heated through.

Tips for the Best Breakfast Sliders

  • Any brand of soft Hawaiian rolls will do. 
  • The sheets are convenient but you can use any slider buns you want.
  • Makes 12 sliders, which will feed about 6 people if everyone eats 2. 

Can You Make Breakfast Sliders the Night Before?

Sure you can! As mentioned above you can split them up and wrap them individually and bake them right in the foil. Or you can assemble them in the dish and cover the dish with foil. Place it in the fridge overnight and bake the next morning.

Serving Suggestions

We enjoy ours with a side of fresh fruit slices or a watermelon fruit salad. The refreshing citrus and juicy fruit flavors are a nice contrast to the meaty, cheesy, sliders.

If you’re looking for something to wash them down with, I highly recommend a strawberry banana smoothie or either of my Starbucks copycats, the watermelon refresher or dragon fruit drink.

Additions and variations

  • Swap the breakfast sausage: Use deli ham, ground pork sausage, sausage patties, or strips of bacon instead. 
  • Eggs done your way: I love fluffy scrambled eggs, but these savory breakfast sliders can be made with fried eggs, sheet pan eggs, or only egg whites.
  • Add veggies: Toss in some diced bell peppers or mushrooms in your scrambled egg mixture.
  • Different garnish: Top sliders with everything bagel seasoning or sesame seeds if poppy seeds aren’t your thing. 
  • Switch up the cheese: Swap sharp cheddar for mild cheddar, American cheese slices, Colby Jack cheese, gruyere, or Swiss cheese. Or use a combination of cheeses.
