What are Sliders?

You may be wondering how sliders are different from burgers. Simply put, both are types of sandwiches traditionally made of ground meat in a bun. However, sliders are mini versions of burgers that you can devour in just 2 to 3 bites. Nowadays, the term sliders can be used when making small, almost bite-sized sandwiches made with slider rolls.

The Best Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders Recipe!

These carb-happy mini sandwiches came out of the oven with perfectly glazed golden tops and oozing with cheesy and meaty goodness in every scrumptious bun. The combination of melted butter and maple syrup brushed on top of the rolls are simply genius! The aroma was glorious, and they were gone in an instant! They truly make the perfect breakfast- hearty, savory, and sweet at the same time. I imagine it would also be the perfect recipe for a brunch party, as you can easily triple the recipe and bake them all in one go. Go all out and serve them with some Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes, Apple Fritters, and Homemade Pretzels. It’ll be a heck of a party!

How to make the Best Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders

Preparations:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 1: Bake the Pork Sausage. Squeeze the pork sausage onto a 9X13 inch baking pan and form it into a rectangle. Then, bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.

Step 2: Cook the Bacon. Lay the strips of bacon on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until crispy. Then crumble once they have cooled down.

Step 3: Scramble the Eggs. Whisk eggs with milk, chives, and pepper in a medium bowl. In a pan over medium heat, melt butter in and pour in the egg mixture. Stir often until the eggs are just cooked.

Step 4: Prepared the Dinner Rolls. Slice the whole block right in the middle sideways. Then place bottom half of rolls onto a 9X13 baking pan or glass dish. Set the tops of the rolls aside.  

Step 5: Assemble. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the bottom buns. Place the sausage (as one large block if possible) on top of the cheese layer. Afterwards, layer the scrambled eggs, and sprinkle the bacon crumbles evenly. Then, add the remaining cheese over the bacon.  

Step 6: Make the Maple Butter Glaze. Melt the remaining butter and stir in the maple syrup. Once one, brush this mixture over the tops of the buns.

Step 7: Bake. Bake the sliders for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops are golden.

Helpful Tips when Making Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders

  • There is no need to separate your rolls when you make these Hawaiian sliders, as it will prolong your prep time. After baking, you can run a serrated knife in between the lines of the rolls to separate them easily.
  • I used a 9X13 baking glass casserole dish that perfectly fits a pack of Hawaiian rolls. However, you can use a metal or porcelain baking dish if you do not have one. Do not use a baking sheet as it will get messy. When making them to go, use a disposable foil pan instead.
  • Slice the Hawaiian roll through the middle, making sure that the bottom half of the rolls is not too thin. Remember that it will take the weight of the sandwich filling, so it needs to be thick enough.
  • Drain the ground pork sausage, scrambled eggs, and bacon from oil, or pat them with a paper towel as much as possible to prevent the slider buns from becoming soggy.
  • A great way to add a punch of heat to your breakfast sandwiches is to use pepper jack cheese or add some jalapeno slices or red pepper in there.

Storage Instructions:

In the unlikely case that you have leftovers, they should be wrapped well using foil or plastic wrap and kept refrigerated for up to 5 days. If you want to store them longer, place the individual sliders in a freezer bag, and keep them frozen for 2 months.

They are quite easy to reheat. If they are refrigerated, they should be heated through in about 30 seconds.  However, if frozen, it would take a couple of minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to brush the top buns with maple syrup and butter?

It makes the tops crisp and adds a rich sweetness to the sandwich, but you can skip this step entirely. Or use egg wash instead.

Can I add mayonnaise, mustard, or other sauce?

Yes, if you prefer to, that is absolutely fine. Take note that using them can make the rolls soggy though.

Could I just bake the eggs in the oven too, instead of heating up the stove?

Yes, prepare a 9X9 baking dish by rubbing the Tablespoon of butter all over the bottom and up the sides. Whisk the eggs together with the milk, chives, and pepper then pour this mixture into the baking dish. They may go into the 350 degree oven (along with the sausage) but will only need to bake for up to 10 minutes. Take them out as soon as they are set.

I feel like bacon and sausage is going to be too much meat in a meal – could I leave one out?

Yes, that really is up to your preference.

Can I use sausage patties instead of ground pork sausage?

Yes, I would cook the patties and then try to place them evenly in a layer over the cheese. I like using ground pork sausage cooked in a block because then there are no spaces. You could also scramble fry sausage on the stove and then sprinkle it over the cheese.

Should I add salt to the eggs?

I find that there is enough salt in the butter, sausage and bacon that it is not necessary to add any salt to the recipe. I’d recommend cooking it this way first, and then having salt available while serving if people would like to add more.

Could I make these up the night before?

Yes! I would recommend fully assembling them and then placing the tray of sliders into the fridge. Then, you may bake them in the morning and they will be as good as fresh!

Notes

Storage Instructions
In the unlikely case that you have leftovers, they should be wrapped well using foil or plastic wrap and maybe kept refrigerated for up to 5 days. You can make them ahead, place the individual sliders in a freezer bag, and keep them frozen for 2 months. From frozen would only take about a minute to reheat nicely. If they are refrigerated, they should be heated through in about 30 seconds.
