Breakfast Sliders Recipe
I have never been a breakfast person, despite all of my best efforts, so making breakfast for my family has always been a struggle for me.
I’m not even thinking about food that early in the day – let alone wanting to make it. So make-ahead breakfasts have been a game changer for me. Not only do they allow me to have a quick and easy option available to offer, it stops me from having to hit up the drive-thru on the way to school on those mornings when even a bowl of cereal is going to make us late.
These easy, cheesy egg and ham breakfast sliders can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to enjoy, or you can bake fresh just before you want to enjoy them.
They are a super simple breakfast slider that is just as perfect for an easy grab-and-go weekday breakfast as it is a special brunch treat on the weekend.
Can these sliders be made ahead of time? Yes, you can assemble the sandwiches the night before you plan to bake them. You can even bake and refrigerate and just reheat or serve cold up to three days after baking.
Can these sliders be frozen? I have had readers say that they have had good success with freezing sliders. Wrap and then store in a freezer bag or airtight freezer containers for up to two months. Allow to thaw fully before reheating. (This set of freezer containers is a crazy bargain.)

How to Make Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders
Preheat oven to 350F
Cut the sandwich sheet in half through the middle to create two “slices” of sandwich sheet.
Place the bottom half of the sandwich sheet in the casserole dish. Set aside.
Place a frying pan over medium heat and add the butter or oil.
Crack the eggs into a medium size bowl and whisk until fully blended. Pour into the preheated frying pan and stir constantly, until eggs are thoroughly cooked.
Remove frying pan from heat.
Place an even layer of the ham on top of the bread.
Follow with the eggs, and then the cheese.
Top with the slider buns and then pour the butter evenly over the sandwiches.
Cover the casserole dish with tinfoil.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until the butter has completely absorbed into the rolls.
Cut and serve.
