Family friendly breakfast sliders

These sliders are a great family friendly breakfast for more reasons than one. First, they’re delicious. Cheesy, warm, and filling. Second, they’re nutritious! A truly family friendly meal helps your family live healthy lives, too.

We started with whole wheat rolls for whole grains. Then we added some tasty veggies to our scrambled eggs to bump up the vitamins and minerals. Spinach and red bell pepper were our choice, but really any veggie could work. The eggs, ham, and cheese are a great source of protein, which is important for a filling breakfast.

We finished these sliders off with some wholesome Cache Valley Natural Slices medium cheddar cheese. We love Cache Valley Creamery because they use only the highest quality local ingredients you know you can trust. Good cheese comes from good places, and this cheese is inspired by the goodness of a stunning valley of dairy farms and friendly people nestled in the mountains. (Take me there!) They’ve been making cheese since 1937, so they really know their stuff. I grabbed my cheese from Smith’s, but it’s also sold at Walmart and many other local retailers. We highly recommend it!

How to make healthy breakfast sliders

Begin by cutting your veggies into small pieces. My husband doesn’t like red bell peppers “taking over” so I cut them really small. Whisk your eggs in a medium bowl. I used 8 eggs, but you are welcome to use more if you want your sliders with lots of egg.Healthy Breakfast Sliders | Easy breakfast idea for kids! | Super Healthy Kids | Food and Drink

In a medium pan over medium-high heat, add a tablespoon of olive oil. Saute spinach, red bell pepper, and green onions for about 5 minutes, until peppers are soft. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Pour in whisked eggs and stir until they’re cooked. Take the eggs off the heat and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350* F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Cut the rolls in half and place them in the bottom of the dish. Set aside the tops for later. If you can find whole wheat rolls that are all attached it is helpful, but not necessary. I could only fit 10 rolls because mine were a bit wide, but you may be able to fit more, depending on the size of your rolls. Just fill the dish up!

Spread a layer of honey mustard on the bottom of the rolls. We loved the addition of honey mustard but these are also great sans sauce. You can use other sauces your family loves and experiment. Now layer on eggs, ham, and cheese.

Place the top of the rolls back on top of everything and bake the sliders for 25 minutes.Healthy Breakfast Sliders | Easy breakfast idea for kids! | Super Healthy Kids | Food and Drink

Make-ahead breakfast sliders

These sliders are also a great breakfast to make ahead! Simply follow the steps above, but put the layer of cheese on the bottom to protect the rolls from getting soggy as they wait. If you really want to be careful, you can simply cook the eggs ahead and then layer everything in the morning, too.

Cover sliders with foil or plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight. When ready to bake, remove foil and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until cheese is melted and eggs are heated through.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon – olive oil
  • 10 medium – rolls, dinner, wheat
  • 8 large – egg

Directions

  1. Chop bell pepper, spinach, and green onions into small pieces. Saute in 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat for 5 minutes, until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk 8 eggs together. Pour into vegetable mixture after veggies are cooked and continue to stir until eggs are fully cooked. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Preheat oven to 350* F. Cut rolls in half horizontally so that the bottoms are separate from tops. Place the bottom half of the rolls in a 9x13 baking dish. I could only fit 10 rolls because they were wide, but use as many as you can fit.
  4. Spread a layer of honey mustard on the roll bottoms, if desired. Layer on cooked eggs with veggies, ham, and then cheese. Cover with the top half of the rolls.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes at 350* F, until cheese is melted and rolls are browned.
Note: If making ahead, place the cheese underneath the eggs and ham to prevent soggy bottoms. Cover with foil and place in the fridge overnight. Bake for about 40 minutes, checking to see when they are heated through.
