Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders with your favorite breakfast fixings, Hawaiian rolls, and a delicious Dijon poppyseed glaze. They’re easy to make and can be prepped ahead. Perfect for brunch or game day!
We’ve been making all kinds of sliders at home, and I decided to start a series of them here on the blog. We have a cheeseburger and Philly cheesesteak posted so far, and a lot more to come!
You’ll enjoy every bite of these mini sandwiches and be hard-pressed to pick a favorite! But who says we have to choose, right? The Philly and the burger versions are great options for a weeknight dinner or game day, and these breakfast sliders are just what you need for a scrumptious breakfast or brunch!
- Bread– we love Hawaiian rolls in this recipe, but slider buns or dinner rolls will work, too.
- Sliced ham– Not in the mood for ham? You can substitute other breakfast meats, such as cooked bacon or sausage patties.
- Cheese– cheddar, Swiss, Monterey jack, provolone, Mozzarella, pepper jack, or any quick melting varieties are all great options!
- Eggs– the recipe calls for scrambled eggs, but I’ve also tried layering with a veggie omelet or over easy-fried eggs, and both were scrumptious!
This breakfast sliders recipe is a must on your meal rotation! It’s ready in minutes and can be easily doubled or tripled for a large crowd. So easy, in fact; the hardest part is making sure the eggs are cooked nice and fluffy.
Whisk the eggs and milk until there are no more streaks of egg whites. For soft, luscious eggs, cook in the pan over low heat just until set but still slightly wet, as they will continue to cook when baked.
Use a serrated knife to cut the slab of Hawaiian rolls in half horizontally to keep from tearing the bread apart.
Butter mustard glaze
Combine melted butter, Dijon mustard, and poppy seeds in a bowl and brush liberally on the bread. This glaze makes the sliders extra buttery and adds a touch of color and a hint of tangy flavor, which goes well with the sweet rolls and the savory ham.
How to serve and store
- Bake the sliders until they’re hot, melty, and yummy. Take them out of the oven and enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any meal in between!
- The fillings can get overcooked when baked and reheated. If you want to make it ahead, prep the sandwiches in the dish, cover tightly with foil, and refrigerate until ready to bake. When ready to serve, brush with the butter mixture and bake as directed.
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 8 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 package (12-count) Hawaiian rolls
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 8 ounces deli ham
- 6 slices Monterey Jack Cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 9 x 13 baking dish
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a bowl, combine eggs and milk. Whisk until well-blended with no streaks of the white. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- In a nonstick skillet over low to medium-low heat, melt butter and swirl around to coat bottom of the pan.
- When butter is barely bubbling, add beaten eggs and allow to cook for about 20 to 30 seconds or just until they start to set. Using a spatula, swipe around the edges of the pan to create large soft curds. Don’t flip the curds over. Continue to gently push and fold the eggs to form curds for about 2 to 3 minutes or just until they’re set and still slightly wet. Remove from heat immediately.
- Lightly spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray.
- Using a serrated knife, cut the rolls in half horizontally. Place the bottom slab of bread in the prepared baking dish.
- Carefully spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the top and bottom halves.
- Arrange sliced ham over the bottom bread to cover.
- Spoon scrambled eggs evenly over ham.
- Arrange cheese slices over eggs to cover.
- Place the top slab of the bread over the cheese.
- In a small bowl, combine melted butter, Dijon mustard, and poppy seeds. Brush over the rolls.
- Cover with foil and bake in a 350 F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted.
- Remove from heat and cut into individual pieces to serve.
