Why This Recipe Works

  • Breakfast sliders are easy to make and great for feeding a crowd.
  • They’re perfect for using up leftover ham the next morning after a holiday gathering, but they can be made anytime of the year with deli honey ham slices.
  • They are amazing game day breakfast sliders!
  • You don’t need the stovetop at all for this recipe because the eggs are baked in the oven (not scrambled in a skillet). In fact, they’re baked at the same temperature the assembled sliders are, so there’s no switching up of the oven temperature.
  • Irresistible flavor combo! Juicy honey ham slices, perfectly seasoned baked eggs, dijon mustard, creamy mayo, melty and gooey Swiss cheese, and buttery soft-on-the-inside and crisp-on-the-outside bread rolls that are topped with Everything Bagel Seasoning….GAH! These sliders are my EVERYTHING and SO YUM!

Ingredient Notes

Labeled ingredients for Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders on a wooden board.
  • Olive Oil (not pictured): To grease our baking dish for the sliders and muffin pan for the baked eggs. You can use cooking spray instead too.
  • Kosher Salt & freshly cracked Black Pepper: For seasoning the eggs.
  • Slider Dinner Rolls/Buns: If you’re based in the USA, King’s Hawaiian Rolls (savory butter, original sweet, honey wheat, or jalapeño rolls) would work great. Alternatively, use any type of dinner rolls or slider buns that you can get from your local supermarket/bakery.
  • Dijon Mustard: Or you can use honey dijon mustard if you like.
  • Italian Seasoning: For seasoning the dijon mustard slathered rolls. Feel free to add any other seasonings you like such as garlic powder, onion powder, or Herbs De Provence, etc.
  • Ham Slices: I used cooked deli maple honey ham slices. But if you have leftover ham from Christmas dinner, you can totally use up slices of it in these breakfast sliders.
  • Swiss Cheese: Use thin slices of Swiss cheese such as Crystal Farms or Sargento brand. Alternatively, you can use other melty cheese slices like provolone, gouda, or Havarti.
  • Mayonnaise: I like Kraft brand full-fat mayo. But you’re welcome to use light or non-fat mayo if you prefer.
  • Unsalted Butter: We’ll be melting and brushing butter on top of the sliders to give them an irresistible buttery flavor! The butter also helps the toppings that are sprinkled on top to adhere to the slider buns.
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning. You can also use plain white sesame seeds and a sprinkling of flaky salt if you wish.

How to Make Breakfast Sliders

1. Bake the eggs. Brush oil in the cups of a 12-count muffin pan (or spray well with cooking spray). Crack an egg into each cup and season with kosher salt and pepper. Bake in a preheated oven until the eggs have reached your desired doneness. Transfer to a cooling rack. Run a knife around the edges of each egg to loosen them from the pan, then set aside until needed.

2. Assemble sliders. Lightly brush oil in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Slice the bread rolls in half (separating each roll is optional, but not necessary). Place the bottom parts in the prepared baking dish.

Spread the dijon mustard evenly on all the bottom bread halves and sprinkle evenly with the Italian seasoning. Then top with the honey ham, baked eggs, and Swiss cheese slices. Spread the mayonnaise on the inner side of the top halves of the dinner rolls. Place them on top to close the sliders.

Cook’s Tips

  • Grease or spray the muffin pan REALLY well. This will prevent your eggs from sticking to the muffin cups and allow them to easily release after baking.
  • Pierce the egg yolks. Use a knife to pierce the yolks if you wish for them to be spread out more and not just in one area.
  • Pat-dry the ham slices. If using store-bought ham slices that came with added water in packages, gently pat them dry with some paper towels before assembling the sliders. This will prevent you from having soggy sliders.
  • Don’t underbake the eggs or they won’t come out whole from the muffin pan. You don’t want to overbake them either since they will go in the oven again once the sliders are assembled. I like to bake them for 14 minutes so that the white parts have set and the yolks are still just a little jammy.

FAQs

How to reheat breakfast sliders?

If you have a toaster oven, you can toast them for a two to three minutes or until heated through. You can also reheat them in an oven safe dish in a preheated oven at 350°F/175°C for about 10-12 minutes. Be sure to cover the sliders loosely with a sheet of foil to prevent the Everything Bagel Seasoning from burning.

What to serve with breakfast sliders?

These breakfast sliders are nice and filling so you don’t need to serve them with too many accompaniments. I recommend serving them with some fresh juice, fruit, and hot coffee for a satisfying, full big breakfast or brunch.

Can breakfast sliders be frozen?

I personally haven’t frozen these sliders as they’re all gone by day 3 or 4 in my home! But I’m sure that you can freeze these breakfast sliders if you wanted to. I recommend wrapping each slider individually in aluminum foil, them pilling them into a freezer safe container. Cover and freeze for up to three months.
To reheat frozen sliders: Unwrap the sliders and place them in an oven safe dish. Cover loosely with a sheet of foil to prevent the Everything Bagel Seasoning from burning in the oven. Heat in the a preheated oven at 350°F/175°C for 20 minutes, removing the foil during the last minute or two or until hot throughout.

Variations

  • Use cooked bacon rashers instead of ham slices. Cut twelve rashers into three pieces each. Cook both sides in a dry skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat until crisp and cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain, then use in place of the ham.
  • Use turkey ham slices.
  • Swap the Swiss cheese for other melty cheese. Provolone, gouda, or Havarti cheese slices are all great options.
  • Scramble the eggs in a skillet instead of bake. Crack 8 eggs into a bowl and season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste. Whisk until nice and frothy. Heat oil or butter over medium-low heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are just set. I find that 8 large eggs are plenty enough for 12 slider/dinner rolls when scrambled.
  • Add spinach. To boost the nutritional content, you can add a layer of baby spinach leaves before the layer of honey ham slices.
  • Make them gluten-free. Use gluten-free dinner rolls/slider buns.
  • Top with fresh herbs. Sprinkle chopped parsley or chives over the sliders once they have cooled for 5 minutes after baking.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 TBLS Olive Oil (or use cooking spray)
  • 12 large Eggs
  • 1.5 TSP Kosher Salt, or to taste
  • ½ TSP freshly cracked Black Pepper, or to taste
  • 12 Dinner Rolls or Slider Buns (such as King’s Hawaiian Rolls) – halved across the middle
  • ¼ cup Dijon Mustard (or honey dijon mustard)
  • ½ TSP Italian Seasoning
  • 24 thinly sliced cooked deli Maple Honey Ham
  • 12 thin slices Swiss Cheese
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 TBLS Unsalted Butter – melted
  • 1 TBLS Everything Bagel Seasoning (or white sesame seeds and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt)

Instructions

  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Lightly brush a 9×13-inch baking dish with ½ tablespoon olive oil (or spray with cooking spray).
  2. Bake the eggs: Brush the remaining 1.5 tablespoons of oil in the cups of a 12-count muffin pan or spray well with cooking spray. Crack an egg into each of the muffin cups and season with kosher salt and pepper to taste. (Optional: Use a knife to pierce the yolks if you wish for them to be spread out more and not just in one area.) Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the eggs have reached your desired doneness (see notes*). Transfer to a wire cooling rack. Run a butter knife around the edges of each egg to loosen them from the pan, then set the pan aside until needed.
  3. Assemble sliders: Slice the bread rolls in half (separating each roll only if you wish, but it is not necessary too). Place the bottom parts in the prepared baking dish. Spread the dijon mustard evenly on all the bottom bread halves. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning evenly on top, then top evenly with the honey ham, the baked eggs, and the Swiss cheese slices. Spread the mayonnaise on the inner side of the top halves of the dinner rolls, then place them on top to close the sliders.
  4. Brush: Place the unsalted butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 15-20 seconds or until melted. Brush on top of the sliders and sprinkle evenly with the Everything Bagel Seasoning.
  5. Bake: Bake for 8-12 minutes in the middle rack of the oven, until the tops of the sliders have browned slightly and the cheese has melted.
  6. Serve: Transfer to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Slice and plate individual sliders, then serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Don’t underbake the eggs or they won’t come out whole from the muffin pan. You don’t want to overbake them either since they will go in the oven again once the sliders are assembled. I like to bake them for 14 minutes so that the white parts have set and the yolks are still just a little jammy.
  2. Leftovers and storage: Store leftover sliders in a sealed airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  3. To reheat refrigerated sliders: You can reheat in a toaster oven for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Reheat in a preheated oven at 350°F/175°C for about 10-12 minutes. If reheating in the oven, cover the sliders loosely with a sheet of foil to prevent the Everything Bagel Seasoning from burning. You can reheat them in the microwave too for about 25 seconds on high. But note that the egg may not heat all the way through and may be cold in the center. The bread also becomes a bit soggy when reheating in the microwave, though that doesn’t stop me from doing so when I’m in a hurry. The oven method is the best way to reheat breakfast sliders though if you want them to taste just as good as the day you made them.
  4. To freeze sliders: Wrap each slider individually in a sheet of aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer safe container. Cover and freeze for up to three months.
  5. To reheat frozen sliders: Unwrap the sliders and place them in an oven safe dish. Cover loosely with a sheet of foil. Place in a preheated oven at 350°F/175°C for 20 minutes, removing the foil during the last minute or two or until hot throughout.
  6. See ‘Variations’ section in the post for ways you can customize these breakfast sliders.
