FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I love origins of food nicknames. This one comes to us from the Navy! It was a nickname given to smaller sized hamburgers and the name became part of everyday civilian language thanks to the White Castle fast food restaurant!
Yes. I prefer to wrap each one individually in plastic wrap then place them all in a freezer safe ziploc bag. That way I can pull them out one at a time to reheat and eat.
These little breakfast sandwiches are a whole meal in one. However, if you want some side dish options, I suggest fresh fruit: banana, oranges and any kind of berry.
The best way is to take a frozen slider and put it not the refrigerator overnight then its just a matter of reheating in the microwave for a few seconds. If reheating from frozen, wrap the breakfast slider in a paper towel and cook in the microwave for about 60 seconds.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- slider buns (butter or potato)
- butter or olive oil
- large eggs
- salt and pepper
- sliced ham
- sliced cheese
- dried minced onion
- dijon mustard
- Worcestershire sauce
- poppyseeds (optional)
HOW TO MAKE BREAKFAST SLIDERS:
Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut the sheet of slider buns in half through the middle to create two "slices" of slider bun sheets. Place the bottom half of slider bun sheets in a casserole dish. Set aside.
In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-heat. Whisk together eggs in a medium-sized bowl until fully blended. Pour into the skillet and stir constantly. Season with salt and pepper and cook until eggs are scrambled and cooked through. Remove skillet from heat.
Place an even layer of ham on bottom slider bun sheet you placed in a casserole dish from earlier.
Layer scrambled eggs evenly on top of ham layer.
Then layer on sliced cheese.
Then, place the top half of slider bun sheets over the slider fillings.
In a separate bowl whisk together the melted butter, dried minced onion, dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and poppyseeds.
Pour the sauce (or brush it on with a pastry brush) over the sliders so it covers the bread evenly.
Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and cook for 25 minutes with the foil on Then take off the foil and continue to cook for 5 more minutes to slightly toast the buns and the spices on top. Then cut and serve.
Updated to add: I updated this recipe from the original with a new sauce. After some experimentation, we really ended up loving this with a seasoned butter on top but it is optional if you prefer.

Ha! My favorite comments are when the picky eaters like something. This made my day. thank you Rose!
Thanks for this one! I think I'll make Easter morning for online services in pajamas. Comfort food during these uncertain times. 🙂
Hi Brandie! I would love to try the ham, egg, and cheese breakfast sliders. Do you have suggestions for freezing them? Do you think they should be frozen after baking or before? Maybe each sandwich wrapped in foil? I’m thinking if they are frozen they will need to be completely thawed before reheating them and then maybe heated in the foil for awhile? Has anyone else frozen them? It’s just me at home so I would just eat them one at a time. Thank you for any tips you might have!

Hi Jennie, that is a good question. I would probably cook them before freezing. Then just wrap each individually. Then you can reheat in the oven or microwave. If you are reheating in the oven, just keep them wrapped in foil. And if you are reheating in microwave, just wrap it up in some paper towels. Hope that helps!
The breakfast sliders sound exactly what my house full of males would enjoy. I have a question. Can you freeze them? I am not the best at freezing because I never know how long something can stay in the freezer and how to reheat, etc. Can you advise me on that?
