Everyone loves a good Hawaiian roll slider – my Ham and Cheese sliders are always a hit! We love them so much that I knew I had to try a breakfast version, so I added fluffy scrambled eggs, ground pork sausage and a yummy buttery topping to those sweet rolls and wow! Needless to say, they’re AMAZING!

Ingredients needed to make Hawaiian roll breakfast sliders all laid out on a white granite countertop.

Ingredients Needed (Amounts in Recipe Card below)

  • Hawaiian Rolls – Surprise, surprise! 😉 These rolls are perfect for breakfast sliders because they’re super soft and slightly sweet which balances out the rest of the savory flavors in the sandwich.
  • Cream Cheese – I like to use the onion and chive cream cheese, but plain (or 1/3 less fat) cream cheese would work just as well.
  • Breakfast Sausage – There are a couple options here. I used ground breakfast sausage as you can see in the photo. However, you could save a step and use precooked breakfast sausage patties, sliced ham, crispy bacon or your favorite cooked breakfast meat.
  • Red Bell Pepper – Red pepper gives these sliders some color and extra flavor. You could certainly skip these in the recipe if you’ve got picky kiddos!
  • Eggs – Who doesn’t love eggs with their breakfast?! They keep these sliders super moist and add a little extra protein!
  • Cheese – Use whatever kind of cheese you like (sharp cheddar cheese, American cheese, Colby jack, muenster, pepperjack, etc). The cheese makes these melty sandwiches irresistible! 
  • Butter – Melted butter is the base of the glaze that will go over the rolls before hitting the oven. And it makes these SOOOO GOOD!
  • Seasonings – Black pepper, onion powder and parsley is all you need!

Step by Step Instructions

Start by turning on the oven and greasing a baking dish (or lining it with parchment paper).

​Open your package of sweet Hawaiian rolls and use a serrated knife to cut them in half.  Place the bottom of the rolls into the prepared pan; spread the cream cheese on top.

Next, you’ll cook the sausage and peppers in a large skillet over medium heat followed by the scrambled eggs (go ahead and use the same skillet for both to save on dishes!).

​Sprinkle the sausage over the cream cheese and then top with scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese.

​Place the top of the rolls on the eggs.

Melt the butter and stir in the onion powder, parsley flakes and black pepper.  Brush over the slider buns.

Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make these sliders ahead of time?

Yes and no. Yes, you can prep most of it ahead of time, but I wouldn’t recommend putting them together until you’re ready to bake them. Here’s what I’d recommend…

Cook the sausage and peppers, place in a bowl and refrigerate.  Do the same with the egg mixture.  Place the butter and spices in a small microwave-safe bowl, cover and refrigerate.  Then in the morning, spread the cream cheese, top with sausage/peppers, eggs, cheese, and the top of the bun. Then melt the butter, brush it on top of the sliders and bake!  With the filling being cold from the fridge, it may need a little more time in the oven to heat through.

What should I serve with savory breakfast sliders?

I like serving these with a side of fresh fruit or my frozen fruit cups!

How should I store leftover breakfast sliders?

Let them cool completely then refrigerate in an airtight container for up to five days.  You can also wrap the individual sliders in plastic wrap, place them in a freezer bag and freeze!  They’re perfect for busy mornings when you want some thing delicious in a hurry!

How should I reheat leftover sliders?

​I like to wrap a slider in a paper towel and microwave until piping hot.  You can also cook them in the air fryer, but be careful as they crisp up quickly!  If you’re reheating them from the freezer, you’ll want to microwave them at about 50% power until they’re warm.

What are some of my other favorite breakfast recipes?

Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash – I love this one, because it’s full of veggies, savory sausage and eggs, making it the perfect filling (and healthy!) breakfast!

Ham and Cheese Egg Bake – The flavored sour cream dip brings these breakfast egg bake to the next level!

Homemade French Toast Sticks – A kid (and adult!) favorite & freezer friendly!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes – Yes, you read that correctly, cottage cheese pancakes!! You’d never know there was cottage cheese in them, but it gives these fluffy pancakes extra protein!

Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders are the perfect way to get the day started! The sliders are layered with cream cheese, scrambled eggs, sausage and melty cheese and topped with a savory butter glaze!!!

Ingredients
 

  • One 12 count package Hawaiian Rolls
  • 6 tablespoons cream cheese plain or onion & chive
  • 1/2 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell peppers optional
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Topping

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Using a serrated knife, slowly slice through all 12 buns (don't tear the 12 apart), so you essentially have one large top bun and one large bottom bun.
    One 12 count package Hawaiian Rolls
  • Place the bottom of the buns in a greased 8×11" pan. If you don't have an 8×11" pan, you can just place them in the center of a greased 9×13". Set the top buns aside.
  • Spread the cream cheese on the bottom buns.
    6 tablespoons cream cheese
  • In a saucepan, brown the breakfast sausage and the red pepper. Drain any excess fat; set aside.
    1/2 pound ground breakfast sausage, 1/3 cup diced red bell peppers
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk and black pepper with a whisk. Once smooth, heat a skillet with 1 tbsp vegetable oil on the stovetop.
    6 eggs, 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Once it's hot, add the eggs and stir occasionally until cooked (making scrambled eggs).
  • Sprinkle the sausage mixture over the bottom buns with the cream cheese, then the eggs on top of that.
  • Next, sprinkle the cheese on top and place the bun tops over the sandwiches.
    1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • In a small bowl, microwave the butter until melted. Stir in the onion powder, black pepper and parsley. Brush overtop of the rolls, letting it soak in a bit.
    1/4 cup butter, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes; remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and tops are golden brown.
  • Slice and serve!

Notes

  • Making a double-batch is easy!  Simply double the ingredients and bake in a 9×13 pan….you’ll be glad you made double! 🙂
  • Save a little time by using precooked breakfast sausage patties instead of worrying about frying the breakfast sausage.
  • This recipe can easily be tailored to your liking…
    • Sub the sausage for sliced ham, bacon, or even leave the meat out and add extra veggies
    • Use your favorite kind of cheese!  Prefer pepperjack for some extra kick?  Go for it!!
    • Add extra veggies like spinach, green bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc.
    • Trying to cut back a bit?  Use 9 egg whites instead of whole eggs, use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and stick to sliced ham instead of sausage.

  1. Very easy and tasty ! I used veggie cream cheese for extra flavor 🌼

  2. LUCI MARRFOGLIA says:

    For the cream cheese, do you use regular cream cheese that has been softened at room temperature, or the whipped cream cheese spread?

    1. Hi Luci! I used the block cream cheese (softened to room temperature), but I think the whipped cream cheese spread would work just fine, too! 🙂 -Kelsey
