We’d like to high-five the person who first thought of taking breakfast foods and putting them in sandwich form. And we’d also like to high-five our recipes editor for taking it to the next level with this breakfast sliders recipe. You might want to consider hosting brunch on Sunday…


1¼ pounds ground breakfast sausage

5 slices cheddar cheese, cut in quarters

1 tablespoon butter

5 eggs

3 tablespoons milk

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 cups arugula

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

10 slider buns, toasted


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil.

2. Make the Sausage Patties: Divide the sausage into 10 even pieces and form into small patties. Place on the prepared sheet and bake in the oven until lightly browned and heated through, 8 to 10 minutes.

3. After you remove the patties from the oven, place 2 pieces of cheese on top of each one. Set aside the baking sheet.

4. Make the Eggs: Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium heat. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Pour the eggs into the hot pan and cook, stirring constantly, until they are softly cooked, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat.

6. Return the sausage patties (now topped with cheese) to the oven to melt the cheese fully, 1 to 2 minutes.

7. Dress the Greens: In a medium bowl, toss the arugula with the olive oil and lemon juice.

8. Build the Sliders: Place a cheesy sausage patty on the bottom of each bun. Top with ¼ cup of scrambled eggs and 2 to 3 tablespoons of arugula. Finish with the top bun. Serve immediately--preferably with hot sauce.
