Sausage Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sliders with Maple Glaze

Sausage Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sliders with Maple Glaze are going to quickly become your new favorite breakfast item. A layer of seasoned ground sausage, a light and fluffy scrambled egg patty, and slices of your favorite American or cheddar cheeses are sandwiched between a dozen butter flavored rolls before being brushed with a maple syrup glaze and baked. The result is a complete breakfast you can hold in your hand and really take a ‘bite’ out of.


Every few weeks or so I suffer a semi-sleepless night or so. Nothing’s ever really wrong. I try to go to sleep, I do.

But really I end up just laying there tossing and turning and getting more and more irritated every time I find myself flirting with sleep but just not getting there. Stop teasing me! I can’t take it anymore.

At that point it’s usually some ungodly hour in the morning when my husband has to be up for work, usually 4 or 4:30 and I give myself a pep talk.

‘Ok, Meaghan/brain– if you can just fall asleep in the next 30 minutes or so, we will get 3 hours of sleep. We can function off that. ShIt, ok– two hours. two will be good enough and we’ll just got to bed early.’

And so on and so on until my husbands alarm goes off for the fifth time after he’s hit snooze and with that clangin’ around in my brain sleep is definitely off the menu.

So why not make the most of my day? I get up, fix my coffee, turn on the news and my computer and pull out my planner to see what we’ve got going on that day.

This is usually the point at which my high school aged teens get annoyed because they actually have to do their designated chores before leaving that morning and they can’t sneak in any PS4 time before heading out to the bus stop.

This is also the point in the morning, let’s say around 6:30, when I mimic wiping away a silent tear for their pain and suffering.

You’d think they’d be happy because these morning always plays out one of two ways. Either they get a homemade breakfast before school, so the teens can then be the ravenous growing humans they are and eat another filling– although less tasty– breakfast for school.

That or they get to come home and eat my brunch for second lunch (think snack time on steroids) and still not be full for even a minute before dinner.

These did end up taking a bit longer than originally planned, but I had a totally bangin’ brunch and the kids were practically fighting over who’d be in the door first once they got a whiff of these bad boys.

They also re-heat nicely for the hubs to take to work for breakfast or even for the older boys to take to school for a grab and go breakfast they can fix themselves. You know, on those mornings I can actually sleep.

Didn’t think sliders were for breakfast? Think again.

Goodbye fast food and kids begging you to put on actual clothes before noon and buy their favorite breakfast sandwich. These can be completely assembled ahead of time and baked just when you need them.

Meat, egg, and cheese– the breakfast combo trifecta- are lovingly sandwiched between two layers of soft butter flavored rolls that are basted with a sweet maple glaze that’s a perfect flavor partnering.

The rolls crisp beautifully on the outside under the sweet glaze, but are soft and buttery on the inside where it counts with the tried and true heart of this am sandwich you’re counting on.

These sausage egg & cheese breakfast sliders are perfect for making busy mornings easier with minimal planning ahead. They’re also perfect for serving at brunches & family gatherings, including the Holidays. Whatever the reason, you can’t go wrong with these on the menu.

Course: Breakfast, Brunch
Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 12
Calories: 381kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 - 12 roll packages of Hawaiian Butter-flavored Sweet Rolls
  • 2 - 16 oz rolls of your favorite brand of quality ground sausage
  • 12-14 large eggs
  • 5-6 slices of deli-style cheddar Colby jack, or American cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  • Place both hunks of sausage into a 9x13 baking dish and use your hands (or a spatula) to press it down, spreading it out evenly until it takes up the entire bottom of the dish.
  • Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk together until evenly incorporated. Lightly spray another 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray and then pour the eggs into the dish. Bake both the sausage and the eggs in the oven at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the sausage cooked through. Now you'll have two giant 'pattys'. Carefully remove the sausage patty to a layer of paper towels to drain away any excess grease.
  • Using a serrated bread knife carefully slice through both sets of rolls, horizontally, and place the bottom half of both packages into the same baking dish the egg patty cooked in, side by side.
  • Layer the sausage, followed by the egg patty, and then the sliced cheese on top. Then place the top layers of bread on top to cap of the sandwiches. Use a small, sharp knife to gently slice through the lines of the rolls, cutting out the lines for the individual sliders.
  • In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat. Whisk the syrup into the melted butter until it's creamy and both are evenly incorporated. Liberally brush the maple glaze over the tops of the bread allowing it to drip down into the cracks.
  • Bake the sliders at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until everything's heated through and the cheese has melted.
  • Use the same small knife to gently cut through/separate the sliders before serving.

Notes

These can be made ahead of time and placed in the fridge until ready to be baked, or you can bake them all, separate into individual servings, and freeze until ready to heat and eat and grab on the go.

  1. Thanks Meaghan, for such a great recipe! I’m excited to let you know that you are my main feature tomorrow on You Link It, We Make It! Congratulations and have a great Wednesday! If you send me your Pinterest email address @ knockitoffcrafter@gmail.com we’ll add you to our group board. Thanks again for such a great recipe!

  2. There is something missing in these steps. Put the bread in the pan that the eggs were in, but the eggs are still in said pan? Please clarify the steps. Thank you.

    1. I was just trying to conserve on dishes. You could either use a third 9×13 to begin assembling in that step, or remove the eggs from the dish they baked in and add the rolls to it so you only dirty 2 9×13’s. Does that make sense?

      1. It’s not about dirtying dishes, it’s about the steps as written are confusing. There’s nothing said about taking the eggs out of the baking dish, so there’s a step that is missing which is obviously important to the whole recipe. I bought the ingredients to make this, so I’d like to be certain I’m doing it right.

        1. No offense was intended, I was just trying to explain. I will review the recipe and attempt to rewrite it to address any confusion.

    1. I’ll definitely get to it, but am in the process of moving so wanted to let you know it may be Monday or Tuesday before I can get the chance to sit down and edit.

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe! Always looking for quick ways to feed my kids better in the morning! The recipe was so easy to follow I whipped it right out with no issues. Great recipes girl! Keep them coming !

  4. 5 stars
    I made these this morning and they are absolutely delicious! Big hit with everyone in the house. We have 7 kids ages 22 to 19 months and they all love them. Everything was done to the recipe and wow. Definitely a new favorite!

  5. I loved these and made them for a beach breakfast … I just wish the eggs were more moist … I even under baked the eggs but they were still dry, especially the ends … think we can add anything to make them more moist …

    1. You could try adding a bit of half and half or cream to your beaten eggs. Honestly I’ve never had the eggs come out dry, even the ends. You could also try using a smaller pan, so the eggs are thicker- but you’d have to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
