Scrambled egg breakfast sliders make for a tasty morning treat. They're fun to eat, filling, and will please the entire family!
This is a fun and delicious way to feed a savory breakfast treat to family and friends, and the fact that these scrambled egg breakfast sliders can be made in advance is always a plus for busy mornings!
I've always been a savory breakfast lover. Pancakes and waffles have their place (on someone else's plate), but for me, I'll pick eggs and cheese any day of the week.

Can breakfast sliders be made in advance?
Yes! Assemble the sliders as per the recipe instructions and store them, covered in the fridge, for up to 24 hours (if needed).
To reheat, uncover, and bake in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes.
Can I use bacon instead of sausage in this recipe?
Yes! I love bacon too!
Just make sure to precook the bacon first, and then lay the strips over the eggs, or chop it and sprinkle it over the eggs.
Can other cheeses be used for these breakfast sliders?
Of course! Use whatever cheese is your favorite.
Can other types of biscuits be used in this recipe?
Sure thing! As long as your alternate biscuit or bun choice is prebaked.
Since all the elements of this breakfast casserole are pre-cooked (and only require reheating), the biscuits need to be pre-baked, so there is no danger of overcooking the eggs.

I looked this saved recipe up to make but stopped after reading the recipe.12 eggs and a pound of sausage for two serving??? This makes little sense. Would you like to clarify?
I'm confused as to why you think the recipe is for two servings?
It clearly states that it makes 12 sliders in the recipe card.
What am I missing? Can you please clarify?
Yummy! My family is going to love love love these sliders! Can't wait to make these!
They truly will. Enjoy!
Have a crowd coming for Labor Day so going to make these then! tysm
I've read the 16 instructions over and over and other than draining on paper towels I don't see where the pork sausage comes in.
You are correct, Donna, and I thank you for kindly letting me know that I'd inadvertently left that important step out of the recipe card.
I've since gone in and corrected it.
The cooked breakfast sausage tops the scrambled eggs before the shredded cheese gets added to the sliders.
Thanks again! Sometimes my old editing eyes don't work like they used to. 😉
We had company last weekend and made this for breakfast - it was a big hit!
Glad to hear it, Alyssa! Thanks for letting me know!
So good -- the perfect way to bring the whole family to the table!

Patricia @ Grab a Plate says
These looks so, so scrumptious. Is it weird that anytime I see poppy seeds, I know it's going to be a good dish? I don't know what it is! Yum!
We love our Saturday morning breakfasts and these look amazing! What a great and easy way to satisfy the whole family and start the day.
