When you have a large group to cook breakfast for, it can be quite a chore. And not just the cooking… deciding what to make can be just as big of a burden! Well, these Breakfast Sausage Sliders solve both of those problems. 12 little sandwiches are cooked up in one pan and we’re pretty sure it’s never been easier to feed a hungry crowd in the A.M. (Or as delicious.)
Sweet Hawaiian rolls are sliced in half and put into a large pan and then layered with scrambled eggs, cooked sausage, cheese, and more cheese. A heavenly mixture of melted butter and maple syrup is poured over the little sandwiches and as they bake, it soaks into the bread and infuses the whole thing with mapley buttery flavor. It’s all the favorite flavors of breakfast in one awesome sandwich bake.
You can even prep these the night before to save yourself some time in the morning. Just assemble them as normal, brush that butter sauce over ’em, cover the whole pan in foil, and let them hang out in the fridge overnight. In the morning, all you’ll have to do is pop the pan in the oven and then sit down and enjoy some tasty little breakfast sandwiches with 11 of your nearest and dearest.
