If you are serving brunch for a crowd you have already asked yourself – What can I make? How long will it take to make? Will everything be ready at the same time? We have just the right solution for you… breakfast sliders! Keep reading for all the great shortcuts and tips to make these easy sliders.
What are Peameal Bacon Breakfast Sliders?
Perfect for brunch, these sliders are filled with some of our favorite things – eggs, cheese and Canadian Bacon (peameal bacon). This ultra-Canadian meal is the tastiest way to wake up!
Instead of cooking 12 individual eggs for breakfast sandwiches the eggs are all whisked together and baked in a baking dish. Then all you need to do is transfer the giant egg patty onto the slider buns!
Precook the peameal bacon and then simply assemble the sliders, brush the buns with butter and bake until lightly toasted. Then just slice and serve the sliders. Gone are the days of frying 12 eggs for breakfast sandwiches.
What to Serve with Peameal Bacon Breakfast Sliders
What is in Breakfast Sliders?
- Peameal Bacon – this is a Canadian bacon that is made from pork loin, is wet-cured with a coating of cornmeal and then sliced into thin pieces. For these sliders you can use peameal bacon, regular bacon, ham or breakfast sausage patties.
- Slider Buns – I love using King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for this recipe. They have a hint of sweetness that pairs perfectly with the salty bacon. You can also use leftover dinner rolls or homemade rolls for this recipe. It’s a great way to use up leftover bread.
- Eggs – this recipe makes 12 sliders and calls for 12 eggs so that each serving gets 1 full egg. You can reduce the number of eggs if you prefer.
- Milk – a splash of milk is whisked into the eggs, making them light, fluffy and creamy.
- Salt and Pepper
- Cheese – we love cheddar cheese for our sliders but you can use any cheese you like!

1 Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Lightly coat an 8-inch square baking dish or sheet pan with cooking spray (optional, line with parchment paper).
2 Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour into the pan and bake until puffed and set, 10 to 15 minutes, or until set and cooked through. Let cool slightly.
3 Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray or oil. Add the peameal bacon and cook, until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside.
4 Carefully slice the slider buns in half and set the tops aside. Place a layer of the cooked peameal on the bottom of the buns.
5 Carefully lift cooked egg out of the pan with spatulas and place it on top of the bacon. Top the egg layer with the slices of cheese to cover completely.
6 Place the top half of the buns on top and brush melted butter on the buns.
7 Bake in oven for 5 minutes to heat and toast bread. Enjoy!
Tips for the Best Breakfast Sliders
- Slider Buns – if you can find King’s Sweet Hawaiian rolls or brioche style slider buns I recommend using those. The sweetness of the rolls pairs perfectly with the savory filling and butter topping. You can also use dinner rolls or regular slider buns.
- Cheese – don’t skimp on the cheese! The order for assembling these sliders is – Canadian bacon, egg and cheese. The cheese is the binder…and it is also just so delicious! Who doesn’t love cheese?! A solid layer of cheese is what holds the top bun in place and melts over the egg.
- Flavor Variations – these breakfast sliders are completely customizable.
- Instead of peameal bacon use regular bacon, thinly sliced ham or sausage patties.
- Instead of cheddar cheese swap for Swiss, mozzarella, smoked gouda, or your favorite cheese.
- For added flavor in the eggs add in sautéed diced onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, and more. This way your egg will taste like your favorite omelete!
FAQs Breakfast Sliders
Reheat the sliders in the oven at 350°F on a sheet pan or baking dish covered with foil for about 5-8 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the top buns are toasted.
Store the cooled sliders in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days (be sure to check the best before date of each ingredient used and adjust accordingly). The sliders can be stacked in the container, you can also put a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap between the layers to prevent the bread from sticking together.
Yes! Canadian Breakfast sliders are perfect for make ahead. Follow the recipe as per usual to assemble the sliders up to 2 days in advance but do not brush the butter on the buns. Store covered in the fridge. Just before serving remove the sliders from the fridge, brush with butter. Bake covered with foil at 350°F for 10 -12 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the top buns are toasted and the meat is warmed through.
Yes! These sliders are freezer friendly. I recommend slicing the sliders into individual sandwiches, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and then store them in a freezer safe air tight container or Ziploc bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen by removing the plastic wrap and microwaving for 2 minutes (or until warmed through), or reheat in the oven on a baking tray covered with foil for 5-10 minutes (or until warmed through)
For a gluten free recipe use gluten free buns and be sure the peameal bacon, regular bacon or sausage patties are gluten free.
For a dairy free recipe omit the milk in the egg mixture and use a dairy free cheese.
