Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
Easily customize these sausage egg and cheese breakfast sliders to suit your tastes!
- Try a different meat. I love the flavor of pork sausage, but bacon or turkey bacon is just as delicious. Or, for a less greasy option, use slices of deli ham.
- Use biscuits or bagels. Baked slider recipes typically call for Hawaiian rolls because the buns are conveniently connected together.
However, you can layer baked biscuits or mini bagels in your baking dish instead!
- Swap out the cheese. Instead of Pepper Jack and American, try cheddar or Swiss. Provolone is tasty too, especially if you use deli ham.
- Make them less sweet. Use the same amount of butter but reduce the amount of maple syrup.
Kitchen Tools You Will Need
- Large Skillet – Be sure to use a skillet that’s at least 12 inches in diameter. You need plenty of room, no matter the sausage breakfast ideas you choose from!
- 9×13 Baking Dish – This baking dish set is my favorite! It comes with a lid for easy storage and is great for casseroles too.
- Bread Knife – The serrated edge of a bread knife glides easily through the slab of rolls without shredding or tearing.
Make Ahead Instructions
Enjoy stress-free morning meals with make-ahead egg and sausage breakfast sliders!
Take some time on the weekend to whip up this breakfast sandwich recipe. Then, enjoy them throughout the week.
For tailgate sandwiches, use a disposable foil pan or wrap each slider individually in foil, so everything stays warm.
You can also make Hawaiian roll breakfast sliders a day ahead and pop them in the oven before the big game.
Breakfast Sliders Recipe FAQ
Hawaiian roll breakfast sliders are easily a complete meal on their own!
Although, if you want to add something else to the meal, fresh fruit is always a good idea.
I often make a big bowl of fruit salad because it goes well with the sliders, plus it stays fresh in the fridge for the entire week.
You sure can! Use a 24-count package of rolls and scale up the ingredients. Or, simply make several batches at the same time.
Since the larger count rolls are a bit smaller, crumble the sausage or bake it in a rectangular slab (on a baking sheet) instead of forming tiny individual patties. The cheese holds everything together!
How To Store Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders
Once the sausage egg and cheese sandwiches are cooled, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag.
They will stay good in the fridge for 4 to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
When you want to have one for breakfast, just pop it in the oven or air fryer for a few minutes while you’re getting ready for the day.
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
