There are few things in life that are as good as a big and hearty breakfast. A plate of eggs, meat, and toast is just the perfect way to start a day. Lately, I’ve started making breakfast sliders as my go-to breakfast because they combine all of those comforting breakfast flavors that I love so much.

These easy egg sliders feature velvety scrambled eggs, hearty and juicy sausage, and melty cheese stuffed between soft and pillowy buns. They’re brushed with maple syrup and butter, just to add even more breakfast flavors to the party. If you love breakfast as much as I do, then you’ve got to try making these easy sausage and egg sliders.

What You’ll Need

Here are all the ingredients you’ll need to make these protein-filled breakfast sliders. Make sure to scroll to the recipe card at the end of the article to see the exact amounts of each ingredient.

  • Slider buns
  • Sausage patties – Use whatever type of sausage you prefer.
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper – Always use freshly cracked pepper. 
  • Shredded cheddar cheese – For best results, shred your own cheese. 
  • Butter
  • Maple syrup – This is an optional ingredient.
  • Chives – Chives are used as an optional garnish. 

Recipe Variations

These easy breakfast sliders use all of my favorite breakfast flavors. But you can adjust the recipe to include other classic breakfast flavors, too. Here are a few variations you can try. 

  • Different meat. I like these sliders best with breakfast sausage, but you can use other meats as well. They’d be fantastic with bacon or Canadian bacon.
  • Add hot sauce. Breakfast foods are perfect to put hot sauce on. If you’re a fan of spiciness, you can add some hot sauce on top of the eggs when you make this recipe. 
  • Include hash browns. Potatoes are obviously a classic breakfast food as well, and they go so well with eggs and meat. If you want to add some potato flavor to this recipe, simply place a layer of hash browns on top of the sausage patty.
  • Swap the buns for mini waffles. If you want to make these egg and sausage sliders look like something on a trendy restaurant menu, you can use mini waffles in place of slider buns. That will bring the breakfast flavors to a whole new level. 
  • Make vegetarian. This is an easy recipe to make vegetarian. All you have to do is remove the sausage or replace it with vegetarian sausage. You can also swap out the meat for tomatoes or avocado. 

How to Make Breakfast Sliders

These rich breakfast sliders with tender and moist scrambled eggs are so easy to make. Here’s how to do it.

  • Prep. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Cook the meat. Brown the sausages in a skillet until they’re fully cooked. 
  • Prepare the buns. While the sausage is cooking, place the bottoms of the slider buns in a 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top of the buns.
  • Add the meat. Place one sausage patty on top of each slider bun.
  • Scramble the eggs. Add the eggs and milk to a bowl, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe most of the grease out of the skillet, then pour in the eggs. Scramble while stirring frequently until the eggs are mostly set.
  • Assemble. Put the scrambled eggs on top of the sausage patties, then add the rest of the shredded cheese. Place the slider buns on top of the cheese. 
  • Brush. Combine the melted butter with the maple syrup, and brush it over the top of the slider buns.
  • Bake. Put the sliders in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and the buns are golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.
  • Serve. Remove the breakfast sliders from the oven, top with chives, and serve while hot. 

Tips for Success

Here are a few tricks and tips to follow when you make these savory breakfast sliders.

  • Don’t overcook the eggs. It’s really important to take the eggs off the stove before they’re fully cooked. This will keep the eggs from overcooking and becoming rubbery and dry when you bake the sliders.
  • Brown the meat. When you cook the sausage, make sure you get a nice sear on the meat. Browning meat maximizes the flavor, so be sure to use a pan that’s hot enough to sear the sausage. 
  • Keep an eye on the sliders. Make sure to check the sliders after about 10 minutes in the oven. Some ovens don’t heat very evenly, so check to see if the sliders are cooking more on one side than on the other. If they are, simply rotate your pan.

What To Serve With Egg Sliders

I usually serve breakfast sliders with some other traditional breakfast dishes or drinks. Here are a few recipes that I think go really well with these rich and savory sliders. 

Can These Breakfast Sliders with Sausage Be Prepared In Advance?

Absolutely! If you want to have a super quick and easy breakfast, just prepare the sliders the night before. Assemble the cheesy egg sliders and cover them in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then keep them in the fridge overnight. Then bake them in the morning when you’re ready to eat! 

How to Store & Reheat Leftovers

Leftover egg and sausage sliders will last in the fridge for 3 days, as long as you store them in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave in 20-second increments until warm throughout. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.
