Friends, are you having the same problem I am? My herb garden is a hot mess! Between the blazing heat, hail and drowning rains, my little herbs have suffered. I have tried to help them, I really have, but I have to admit defeat with the herbs. Strangely, my tomato plants must love this crazy weather because they are almost 12 feet high! Well, they would be but I don’t have stakes that tall so now they are hanging over, propped up on lawn chairs. It looks ridiculous and I can only imagine what my mother would say if she saw what that looks like!! On the bright side, there will be no shortage of tomato soup this winter!

My garden really has nothing to do with this recipe except that when I tested it, I used fresh chives in the eggs. Due to garden failure, I have changed the recipe to use either fresh or dried chives. Let me show you how I made these amazing sliders.

How To Make Egg Sausage Breakfast Sliders

Get started by lightly buttering the baking pan. If you like non-stick spray then use that, but I like to use butter rather than spray so the bottom of the buns pick up the delicious butter flavor.

Note: Non-stick cooking sprays contain soy lecithin, which can create a sticky brown residue on pans when you’re done cooking.  Some cookware manufacturers advise keeping the cooking spray in the cupboard to begin with.

Evenly divide the cheese between the slider buns. Normally I like to freshly grate the cheese myself, but I got lazy and used shredded cheese from a bag. I know…I know. The shredded cheese stays pretty in the bag because it has stabilizers added to it. Unfortunately, I find that the stabilizers do not allow the cheese to melt as nicely as cheese you shred yourself from a block.  I don’t think anyone here notices the difference, but in the interest of full disclosure I am telling you.

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the chives, milk and as much salt and pepper as you like. The recipe calls for either fresh or dried chives…the chives in this photo are the dried variety.

Spread the scrambled eggs and then the sausage over the cheese in an even layer. Then replace the tops of the slider rolls.

Melt the butter in a small dish and then add the maple syrup.

This is where the magic happens! Brush the maple butter over the top of the rolls, using all of the mixture. Then bake in 350 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes until cheese is bubbling and tops are golden brown.

These Egg Sausage Breakfast Sliders are a great base recipe. They can be devoured immediately or made the night before and baked in the morning. We make them with different fillings based on when they will be served, like my Italian Ham and Cheese Sliders and they’re always a hit! You can switch up the fillings and even the bread, here are some other ways of making these delicious anytime sliders:

  • Instead of using plain slider rolls, use Hawaiian rolls for a sweeter option. They’re completely delicious freshly baked and crisp. Don’t forget about Onion rolls…they will add immense flavor to your sliders!
  • Using bacon instead of sausage. I usually cook the bacon in the oven for less mess. The bacon also comes out in perfect, flat strips to make building the sliders easier. Thin slices of ham work too!
  • How about eggs cooked over-easy topping each roll! Yum.
  • Add veggies!! Anything you would use in an omelette can go in these sandwiches, like fresh spinach or very thinly sliced green bell peppers and onions. Roasted red peppers will add beautiful color to the rolls.
  • Variety is the spice of life! Add sriracha or other hot sauce to the melted butter you brush on top. Or mustard and minced onion. You can’t go wrong with honey added to the butter, then topped with a sprinkling of poppy seeds.

  • pinch kosher salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 4 cups shredded cheese

  • Cut slider rolls in half lengthwise. Place the bottom half of rolls in baking dish.  Set the tops aside. Evenly spread the shredded cheese over the bottom half of rolls. Scoop scrambled eggs onto the layer of cheese, spreading evenly.  Place sausage on top of the eggs and top with top half of rolls.

  1. Hi Tina, you are right! Something happened in the nutrition conversion and I missed it. Carb count has been corrected! The ones I used were just store brand slider buns…at 18g of carbs each. Sorry about that!🤔

  2. I’m a little confused by your carb count. The slider rolls Ibought have 18 g per roll and the hawaiian have 25g per roll. What slider rolls did you use or did you make your own? I still can’t wait to try these!

  3. Hi Lina, sorry to hear that happened. Did you brush the top of the buns with the butter and maple syrup? That should keep them nice and soft (and delicious😋). The 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven is only to heat and lightly toast the buns, I’m not sure how the buns would burn in that short time. Let me know how it goes.

  4. i used trader joes Hawaiian buns. I pre heated my oven to 350, middle rack. cooked them for 15min, but the buns came out hard and burnt. was i suppose to cover them? or soak them so they did come out dry?
