Breakfast Sliders

When it comes to picking a favorite breakfast food, a really good breakfast sandwich will always stand above the rest in my book — especially when that sandwich comes in slider form, layered with a mound of fluffy eggs, crispy bacon, and a double (yes, double!) layer of melty cheddar. It’s like party food for your weekday morning.

A Breakfast Sandwich to Freeze for Later
One of the greatest things you can do for your morning is to prep and assemble a batch of these sliders during weekend meal prep. While these sandwiches are great straight from the oven, they freeze and reheat like a dream. Take advantage of this and when the going gets tough on a Monday morning, you’ll be grateful for the forethought.

Once the whole batch of sliders are cooked and cooled, stash them in a resealable bag or container in the freezer, where they’ll keep for up to three months. Pop them in the oven (or toaster oven) while you go through your morning routine, and by the time you’re done, you’ll have a hot bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich waiting for you.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 (12 oz) Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Pork Sausage Rolls 
  • 12 Hawaiian dinner rolls 
  • 8 large eggs, scrambled 
  • 6 slices pepper jack cheese 
  • 8 slices American cheese 
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Warm large skillet over medium heat. Form sausage into 12 patties, slightly larger than one dinner roll. Add sausage to skillet and cook until completely cooked through. 
  3. Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, cut rolls in half lengthwise (without breaking apart). Place bottom half of rolls in 7×10-inch or 9×13-inch baking dish; set tops aside. 
  4. Scoop scrambled eggs onto bottom rolls; top with pepper jack. Place sausage on top of pepper jack and top with American cheese. Carefully top with top buns. 
  5. Combine melted butter and maple syrup in small bowl. Brush over tops of rolls allowing sauce to drip down sides and into bottom. Use entire amount. 
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melted. Serve and enjoy! 

NOTES:

  • To make for tailgating use a disposable foil pan or wrap individually in foil and keep warm. Sliders can be prepared a day ahead and popped in the oven before the big game.
