Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Sliders

Growing up, weekend mornings always started with a breakfast sandwich together as a family.

For this recipe we’re making that memorable family meal even better, and easier, with our Smithfield® bacon breakfast slider tray.  

With our easy, breakfast slider method everyone will get equal portions, you’ll have much less clean-up, and overall have much more family time since you can feed a large group all at the same time.

Ingredients on a counter

We start our breakfast sliders by baking our Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon. 

Is there anything better than the fresh smell of sizzling bacon in the morning to start your day? 

We honestly wish we could package that smell so we could have it wafting through our house all day long.

What’s the best way to cook bacon?

Listen, we love bacon cooked any way as long as it makes it to our mouth, but the easiest way to cook a large amount of crispy bacon in a uniform way is in the oven.  

We start by laying our bacon down flat on parchment paper (tinfoil also works), and we then bake it in a sheet pan for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

The length of time depends on your preferred level of crispness and the bacon’s thickness.

How to make breakfast sliders

The great thing about Smithfield is that they have a wide variety of meat options – including ham.

While the bacon is cooking, start making the eggs. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and start dicing onions, bell pepper, and add Smithfield® Anytime Favorites® ham.  

With everything diced, we scrambled the eggs and added that diced mix to the scramble. It brings in the flavor of a Denver omelette, all while sneaking some veggies in.

To cook our scrambled egg mixture and form perfect patties for the sliders, bake it in the same baking sheet used to cook the bacon. Hooray for one less pan to clean!

We decided to cook our eggs like this because we want a smooth and even egg patty for our perfect breakfast bacon sliders. 

When the eggs are finished baking, pull them from the oven, cut the slider roll pack in half lengthwise, and top the egg patty over all of the slider bread.  

Top the eggs with mozzarella and bacon, and then put the tops of the slider bread back on top with butter and everything bagel seasoning.

To finish, place it all back in the oven for about 7 minutes until the cheese is nice and melty. 

When you pull our breakfast sliders out of the oven, your family and friends are going to be obsessed with our bacon-packed, cheesy sliders.
