WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS RECIPE
- Simple and easy to prepare!
- Recipe can be doubled to feed a crowd.
- So many delicious ways to customize these breakfast sliders!
- Much of the dish can be made ahead of time for stress-free entertaining.
You’ll need the following ingredients to make these amazing Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders:
Hawaiian Rolls: I always buy King’s Hawaiian Rolls but any sweet roll will work. You can even use plain (non sweet) slider buns.
Cheese: You’ll need two kinds of cheese for these cheesy breakfast sliders: sliced and shredded! You really can’t go wrong, so choose your faves! My favorites are White American Cheese Slices (I get these at my deli counter) and grated Fontina. Plain American cheese slices (like Kraft) are amazing, too–not gonna lie!
Ham: I like using thinly sliced honey ham for these sliders because it’s easy to pile on top of the sliders. However, whatever ham you have on hand will work.
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE: STEP BY STEP
Here are some quick visual instructions. Remember that full instructions with exact ingredients will be in the recipe card below!
Step 1: Scramble your eggs. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Step 2: Cut Hawaiian rolls in half. Do you best to keep them all together, but it’s fine if some of them come apart! I added some extra rolls to make everything fit nicely into my baking dish 🙂
Step 3: Layer your cheese slices on top of your Hawaiian rolls. Then, layer on scrambled eggs on top of the cheese.
Step 4: Pile on your ham layer!
Step 5: Top everything with shredded cheese!
Top 6: Add the bun tops and brush with honey butter.
Step 7: Bake sliders at 350°F for 15-20 until slightly browned on top and cheese is nice and melty!
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS
- I love the convenience of of shredded cheese, but if you have the time, shred your own! It melts so much better!
- If you don’t have a baking dish that fits the rolls exactly, no worries! You can either trim a few rolls to make them fit OR just use a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a baking sheet makes them easy to cut, too!
STORAGE & REHEATING
- Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Any longer and they get a bit soggy. If you think you will be storing these, I would leave off the honey butter and brush it on when you reheat.
- Freezing: These sliders freeze up pretty well. Allow sliders to cool completely. Then wrap individually in plastic wrap. Once they are all wrapped, throw them in a large freezer bag and freeze for for up to 3 months. ((Note: When freezing, I recommend NOT drizzling with the honey butter. When you reheat them from the freezer, that is when you can brush on the honey butter!))
- Reheating: Note that Hawaiian rolls with the honey butter can get a bit soggy when reheating, especially in the microwave. These breakfast sliders are best reheated in an oven or toaster oven at 350°F for a few minutes until warmed through. You can also reheat them straight from frozen! Just add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
ADDITIONS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
There are soooo many ways to customize these breakfast sliders!!! Mix and match!
- Rolls: King’s Hawaiian rolls are my favorite and widely available but any “slider type” rolls are great!
- Cheese: The meltier the cheese, the better! Here are some suggestions of cheeses that melt well: American cheese slices, fontina, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, smoked gouda and Swiss.
- Protein/Meat: Cooked, crumbled breakfast sausage, bacon (any kind…smoked, peppered, etc) or Canadian bacon. Plant-based versions of breakfast meat are a great vegetarian alternative.
- Drizzle: Maple syrup swapped for the honey is also delish!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes! There are two ways to do it:
If making a few hours ahead: Assemble everything EXCEPT do not brush on the honey butter. Cover tightly and refrigerate a few hours until you are ready to bake it. Right before baking, drizzle on your honey butter. Keep in mind, you may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if it’s coming straight from the fridge.
If making the day before: If you want to make this the night before, I suggest scrambling your eggs and storing them in the fridge in an air tight container. That’s really the only time consuming part of the process. Then, when you are ready to eat, you can assemble the sliders in minutes.
Fresh fruit or these delicious, easy Air Fryer Hash Browns are perfect sides!

Hawaiian Roll Breakfast Sliders
- 16 Hawaiian rolls (or slider rolls)
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk optional
- 9 slices American cheese See Note 1
- 9 slices thinly sliced ham
- 2 cups shredded cheese See Note 1
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp honey
- salt/pepper to taste
- Beat eggs in milk in a medium bowl. In a large non stick skillet over low heat, pour in egg mixture and scramble 5-7 minutes, stirring often until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Slice Hawaiian rolls in half and lay them flat in baking pan or on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Start layering on your cheese slices–overlap them so them all fit.
- Next, top the cheese slices with scrambled eggs.
- Then, pile on your ham. Again, overlap is fine!
- Top everything with the shredded cheese and place tops back on the sliders.
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, add butter and honey. Microwave for 10-15 seconds until melted. Brush the honey butter over the tops of the sliders.
- Bake sliders 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the cheese and nice and melty inside. Allow a few minutes for the sliders to cool, then cut and enjoy right away!

Hayley Dhanecha says
These Hawaiian Rolls were so delicious! comforting and easy recipe.
Such a great idea for serving up breakfast to a crowd!
I made these last weekend and they are beyond yummy. The whole family loved them.
Hi, I was wondering what size pan did you used? From the picture it looks like either a 8×8 or 9×9 pan. Also if I were to make this the night before at least the scrambled eggs part should it be in the oven longer since the eggs are cold and how long? Lastly, I am planning to bring this to a breakfast party at work if I plan to bake and then cover the top with foil would it get soggy along the way? Or do you have any suggestions on how I can transport these without making it soggy? Should I wait until it is a bit cool to pack it to go or can I cover it and bring it right away? FYI it takes me about 15 minutes to get to work. Thanks!
Casey Rooney says
Hey there! Yes, an 8×8 on 9×9 pan is perfect. You can make the eggs ahead and just add about 5-10 minutes or so to the baking time… I haven’t tried this, so it’s not exact but just check at about the 20-minute mark to ensure the eggs are warmed through. To prevent sogginess, I would leave off the honey butter until you get to work, then drizzle it on when you are ready to serve it! XO ~ Casey
Thanks for the suggestions! I am planning to bake this in disposable foil pan for easy transfer and clean up. I forgot to ask if I need to grease the foil pan. I am not sure if the baked sliders stick to the baking pan when done or should I add parchment paper for easier removal whether it is in a baking pan or a foil pan? Thanks!
Casey Rooney says
Parchment paper isn’t necessary. Just spray the foil pan with some Pam or cooking spray to be safe 🙂
I absolutely LOVE these sliders! So cheesy and delicious. They are perfect for the weekends and my family loves them.
Claudia Lamascolo says
I had just bought all the ingredients and made these this morning, the sweetness in these rolls made the sliders a perfect balance we love this recipe.
