Baked Breakfast Sliders with Maple Butter Sauce



For the sliders:

  • 1 package King’s Hawaiian Rolls, sliced in half so the tops and bottoms are separate
  • 12 eggs, all cracked into a bowl
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage (I used Jimmy Dean’s pork sausage)
  • 5 slices cheddar cheese

For the sauce:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Form your sausage into 12 patties that are a little bigger than the size of your slider bottoms and set on a baking sheet next to your stove so you can fry them in batches
  3. In a large skillet over medium high heat, sear your sausage patties until both sides have a nice deep sear. You’ll need to do this in batches. When done, set aside
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Place it back over medium heat and add your eggs. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Cook the eggs, moving them around with a spatula almost constantly. Remove them from the heat when they are just set but still moist and soft
  6. To assemble, place the bottom layer of King’s Hawaiian Rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish. I like to pull them apart and then place them back next to each other just so it’s easier to grab the sliders when they are totally done
  7. The first layer is the eggs. Spread your eggs out across your slider rolls. On top of the eggs, place each sausage patty. On top of the sausage, place your slices of cheddar cheese (your final slice will need to be broken in half because a third slice won’t fit all the way).
  8. Place the tops of the slider rolls on top of the cheese. I like to pull these apart too like I do with the bottom row. Take a small knife and run it in between the borders of each slider top so that you can slice through that cheese. This will allow the sauce so soak in between each roll too instead of the slices of cheese being a barrier
  9. To make your sauce, melt your butter in the microwave and whisk in your maple syrup and mustard until totally combined
  10. Pour the sauce all over the tops of your sliders. There will be some sauce along the sides of the baking dish that didn’t soak into the sliders. Using a pastry brush, brush some of that extra sauce across the tops and sides of the sliders, ensuring that everything is totally covered.
  11. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and serve!
