Breakfast Sliders

adapted from Little Dairy on the Prairie

Last week we participated, along with our friends from Edmonton Fire Rescue Services Dispatch, in the Meals that Mend program at RMHCNA. Our menu: breakfast for dinner or ‘brinner’ as one of us was trying to call our meal. Because both of us are historically poor at menu planning (particularly when it comes to quantity), we enlisted the assistance of our phenomenal friends Vandy and Elise. Having said that, we promptly ignored a lot of their advice and decided that our discussed menu was not sufficient in terms of quantity, so we did what we normally do and added more food. Specifically we added breakfast sliders.

The original recipe indicates that these sliders can be frozen and brought out when convenient, and since we are all about freezer meals these days we decided we had to give them a try!! Turns out, they were a phenomenal addition and just what our menu needed. This is a really brilliant recipe that is easily doubled, tripled or even quadrupled.  

For the rolls you will need:

12 dinner rolls

12 fried eggs (scrambled you would need 2 eggs per dinner roll)

12 slices of cheese

12 pieces of deli ham (optional)


For the sauce you will need:

5 tablespoons of butter

½ of a teaspoon of onion powder

¾ of a tablespoon of mustard

½ of a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

¾ of a teaspoon of poppy seeds

We made 36 sliders and found we actually had just enough sauce. Scramble or fry your eggs then slice your dinner rolls in half. Put the bottom half in a greased baking pan, add a layer of egg and a piece of ham followed by a slice of cheese, then replace the top half of the bun. Next melt the butter, add the poppy seeds, mustard, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce and brush this over the tops of the rolls. At this point, you can cover the sliders and refrigerate them until baking time. To bake preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10-15 minutes. Breakfast slider The fact that these sliders can be frozen made us like this recipe even more. Unfortunately, these were so delicious we had none left to experiment with.
