FAQs

How do you keep sliders warm?

It’s easy to keep sliders warm by covering with foil and setting them in an oven set very low, around 150°F.

How do you keep sliders from getting soggy?

The trick to keeping your sliders from getting soggy is to keep the condensation away. If you cover your sliders with foil or a plastic lid after cooking, the condensation will fall back onto your dish. Try covering with a kitchen towel if you need to transport your sliders.

What makes a slider a slider?

A slider is a mini sandwich on a mini bun! They’re cute and sized just right for snacking or for sampling multiple different sliders.

How to make these sliders your own

  • This recipe calls for a blend of pepper jack and colby jack cheeses, but you can use whatever cheese you prefer for an egg dish. Same goes for the ham! You can sub in salami, cooked sausage crumbles, bacon, or whatever other prepared meat you have ready to go.
  • To make a vegetarian version, swap the meat out for thinly sliced veggies. Try sautéed veggies, like onions, green peppers, and mushrooms.
  • It’s easy to change up the toppings in this dish, because the individual sandwich buns help you to see where each row of sandwiches will end. This means you can make one side spicy and one side sweet, or leave the meat off half, or create whatever variation you have in mind. 
  • This dish works perfectly on Hawaiian rolls, but if you happen to have a pack of potato rolls or another kind of rolls on hand, you should be able to use them.

Storage Suggestions

While these are best eaten immediately, you can store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days. Freezing these sliders is not recommended.

Reheating Tips

Reheat in oven at 350°F until warmed through (10-15 minutes), or heat individual sliders in microwave for 20-30 seconds or until warm.
