Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 eggs, scrambled and not overcooked we want them to still be a little moist and creamy inside once baked.
  • 1 1/2 packages Hawaiian rolls these fluffy, sweet rolls are the star of the show.
  • 1 lb sliced deli ham I like using Black Forest ham for its subtle smoky flavor.
  • 12 slices American cheese a classic pairing with the ham and eggs. Feel free to substitute your favorite melting cheese though.
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted – this will give the rolls a nice golden brown color and soft texture.
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup just a touch of maple syrup ties all the flavors together beautifully.

How to Make This Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders Recipe

Prepping the Ingredients

  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and scramble them lightly with a fork, taking care not to overmix. Set aside.
  • Slice the ham into 1/4 inch strips. Slice the cheese into halves.
  • Cut each Hawaiian roll horizontally so you have two halves but keep them attached at the bottom. Set rolls aside.

Assembling the Sliders

  • Lay out the roll bottoms on a baking sheet.
  • Divide the scrambled eggs evenly among the rolls, mounding them on the bottom half of each roll.
  • Top each egg mound with a few strips of ham, then lay a cheese slice over the ham.
  • Lightly brush the roll tops with melted butter and place them over the filling to make sandwiches.

Baking the Sliders

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the assembled sliders on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • While baking, mix the maple syrup with the remaining melted butter.

Serving Instructions

  • These Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders are best served warm straight from the oven. You can also keep them warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.
  • Be sure to provide napkins, as the sliders can get a little messy to eat. Having small plates available allows guests to assemble their perfect slider bite.
  • You may also want to set out sides like fresh fruit, yogurt or coffee to complete the breakfast spread. And don’t forget the maple syrup bottle for extra drizzling.

Storage and Freezing Instructions

  • Leftover sliders can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat individual sliders in the microwave until warm and cheese is melted.
  • You can also freeze the assembled but unbaked sliders. Place them on a baking sheet and freeze until solid, about 2 hours, then transfer to a freezer bag.
  • To bake from frozen, add 5-10 minutes to the baking time. You can also thaw sliders overnight in the fridge before baking. Frozen sliders will last up to 2 months in the freezer.
  • These sliders are a great make-ahead breakfast or brunch option. Just pull them out of the freezer and bake as needed for an easy, satisfying meal.

  • pkg Hawaiian rolls

  • 12 eggs, scrambled
  • 12 slices American cheese
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Begin prepping your ingredients by slicing the ham into thin strips and chopping any veggies. Crack the eggs into a bowl and scramble them lightly with a fork.
  • To assemble, use a serrated knife to slice the Hawaiian rolls horizontally without cutting all the way through. This will create perfect little "pockets" to fill. Spread the bottom halves of the rolls out on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Divide the scrambled eggs evenly among the roll bottoms, mounding them in the center. Top each egg mound with a few strips of ham and a cheese slice. Brush the melted butter over the roll tops and place them on the sandwiches to close them up.
  • Once all the sliders are assembled, transfer the baking sheet to the oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • While baking, mix the maple syrup with the remaining melted butter. Once the sliders are done, remove from oven and brush the tops with the sweet maple glaze. Cut in half if desired and serve warm.
