It’s no secret that I love a good slider recipe. These are the best breakfast sliders and a family favorite for us! 

Spread these babies with sweet maple butter, then pile them with scrambled eggs, cheese, and crispy bacon. I like to top them with everything bagel seasoning for a savory crunch!

You’ll love these breakfast sliders because you can make them ahead and get work done the day before. They also reheat well, so they can be a meal prep for easy weekday breakfasts.

This recipe is a real workhorse. It makes an impressive brunch dish or special occasion breakfast! Try serving them at a girl’s brunch or for Christmas morning.

You can double or even quadruple the recipe if you’re cooking for a crowd. Scramble the eggs, cook the bacon, and assemble the sandwiches the day before. Then you can bake them in the morning. 

You can also assemble a pan to drop off to new parents or someone grieving. They will be much appreciated.

Ingredients

Hawaiian rolls, bacon, eggs, sliced cheddar or American cheese, butter, maple syrup, and everything bagel seasoning for making breakfast sliders.

A 12-pack of Hawaiian Dinner Rolls such as King’s. Don’t pull them apart! 

Spread sweet maple butter in the rolls to add moisture and sweet buttery goodness to these sliders. It brings home the breakfast feel by giving these little sandwiches pancake vibes.

Fluffy scrambled eggs and crispy bacon are the main event. I always cook bacon in the oven. It is splatter free and mostly hands off.

Sliced Cheddar or American Cheese adds a gooey, creamy element to these sliders. And it makes them ultra-rich and decadent.

Brushing the rolls with butter adds a rich flavor and gives the seasoning something to stick to. Sprinkle everything bagel seasoning on top for a final touch. It adds a savory flavor and a nice little crunch. Whip up a quick batch of homemade everything bagel seasoning, or pick up a bottle at Trader Joe’s.

Substitutions & Variations

Use a different meat. Use 12 cooked sausage patties, 8 ounces of sliced ham, or 8 ounces of Canadian bacon instead of bacon. You can also use turkey sausage or bacon. 

Switch up the cheese. Use gouda or gruyere. Or make these even more indulgent by using homemade pimento cheese!

Use pancake syrup instead of pure maple syrup. 

How to Make Breakfast Sliders with Hawaiian Rolls

First, prepare your bacon and eggs

Use my recipe for how to cook bacon in the oven! It doesn’t splatter and is mostly hands off. You can cook the bacon while you start to prep the other ingredients.

Next, scramble your eggs. Crack the eggs in a mixing bowl and salt them. Then, whisk them until smooth and frothy.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Then, melt the butter (or bacon grease) in the skillet. Pour in the eggs and use a silicone spatula to gently scramble eggs. Scrape the eggs from the side of the pan without breaking them up too much.

Continue slowly scraping the eggs around until they are just set. Don’t over cook them. We’re about to bake them in the sandwiches, so you don’t want them too dry. 🙂

Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

Now, assemble the sliders

Mix the softened butter, maple syrup, and 1/8 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl.

Then, use a serrated bread knife to cut the package of rolls in half, horizontally. Do not break them apart! They should look like a giant hamburger bun.

Spread the maple butter mixture over the insides of the top and bottom halves.

Spray your baking dish with cooking spray to keep the sliders from sticking. Then, place the bottom half of the rolls into the prepared dish.

Spoon the scrambled eggs evenly onto the rolls. Then, layer the cheese on top.

Next comes the bacon. I like to layer it in different directions to get it good and even. You want bacon in every bite!

Place the top half of the rolls on. Then, use a serrated knife to cut them into individual little sandwiches. Use your hands to lightly squish them together as you cut. This will make serving easier.

Now, brush the tops with melted butter. Then, sprinkle them with everything bagel seasoning.

Bake and serve

Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. At this point, you can go ahead and bake them or refrigerate until ready to bake. (See Make Ahead)

When you’re ready, bake at 350℉ for 15 minutes, until hot. Remove from the oven and let them rest for 5 minutes.

Then, remove the foil and serve while still warm.

How to Reheat the Sliders

To reheat them in the oven: Wrap leftovers in foil and bake at 350℉ for a few minutes, until hot.

To reheat in the microwave: Place one or 2 sliders on a microwave-safe plate. Then, heat in 15-second intervals until hot.

Make Ahead or Feed a Crowd

Make these up to 1 day in advance. Assemble the sliders and cover them with foil the night before. Then, bake them the next day before serving.

You may want to make a double batch. People tend to devour these sliders.

You can scale this recipe to create a double batch. You can arrange the rolls to fit 2 packs in a 9×13 pan. Just double the ingredients.

Make as many pans as you like. It’s a perfect way to serve a delicious brunch to a crowd. You can scramble the eggs, cook the bacon, and assemble the sandwiches the day before.

Then, pop them in the oven for about half an hour before serving. This allows you to enjoy your company or get last-minute tasks done instead of spending the whole morning cooking!

Bring a Pan to a Friend

These bacon, egg, and cheese sliders are perfect for meal trains. Take them to new parents, someone sick, or grieving. I promise a new mom would love these! You can make them in a disposable aluminum pan for convenience.

Assemble them and cover the pan with foil, but don’t bake them. Write the cooking instructions in a permanent marker on the top of the aluminum foil.

How to Serve Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders

Serve them as part of a delicious brunch or breakfast. They go great with fresh fruit. Try serving these sliders with cubed watermelon or simple citrus salad. You can even use them to serve breakfast or dinner. Brinner! 🙂

Make them part of a brunch buffet alongside other favorites. Try biscuits & sausage gravy, French toast, or cheesy hashbrown casserole.

Make them for a special occasion! They are a perfect Christmas morning breakfast or Mother’s Day brunch.

Instructions

Prepare the bacon and eggs

  1. Cook the bacon until crispy. Then drain on paper towels and set aside. I prefer to cook bacon in the oven.

  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter or reserved bacon grease in the pan.

Assemble the sliders

  1. Preheat oven to 350℉

  3. Add 4 tablespoons of softened butter, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and ⅛ teaspoon of salt to a small bowl. Stir together and set aside.
