I’m sure we’ve all been through a breakfast drive-thru and have gotten a breakfast sandwich on the go. Let me tell you something. Homemade is even better! Especially when you place that egg, ham, and cheese inside a homemade cheddar biscuit. You could use an English muffin, but for these to qualify as a slider you really need something a little smaller. Serving this breakfast on a biscuit automatically qualifies it as a slider, in my book. Sometimes, I even like to cut my biscuits on the small side so they’re a mini sandwich…so poppable!
The trick to getting a perfectly round egg is to cook it inside of a ring. I’ve found that a wide mouth ring works best, but if you’re working with smaller biscuits, and egg will fit into a regular-sized canning ring just fine. You’ll need to spray the inside of the ring with cooking spray to prevent the egg from sticking. Once the egg is cooked, you’ll want to slide your ham right under the egg. This allows the ham to get crisp while keeping the egg warm, but not overcooking it. At the same time, you’ll add your cheese to the top of the egg. The heat from the cooked egg should melt it in just a couple of minutes. At this point, you can pick up the whole stack and stick it inside the biscuit.
It’s easy to make just one of these ham and cheese breakfast sliders or make a whole bunch at the same time if you’re feeding a crowd. I like to wrap them up in foil when we’re on the go. You can even stick them in your kid’s school lunch and they happily have breakfast for lunch! A solid breakfast is always the best way to start the day and these make-ahead breakfast sliders will certainly leave you feeling full and content all day long.

Tools used to make this Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sliders recipe
Biscuit Cutters: Get perfectly sized biscuits every time with these biscuit cutters. Make ’em small for sliders or big and fluffy for biscuits & gravy!
Baking Sheet: A nice big baking sheet is a must have for any kitchen. This half pan sheet is large than a regular cookie and works great for anything you’re baking.
Canning Rings: A must have for mason jars, but also great for cooking with!
Skillet: This skillet is my go-to kitchen tool. It’s large circumference and high sides make it perfect for cooking anything from one pan meals to soups and sauces.
- 4 biscuits regular or cheddar
- 4 eggs
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 slices ham
- olive oil spray
- Slice biscuits lengthwise.
- In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, set 4 wide mouth canning rings in the pan. Spray the insides of the rings and the base of the pan with the oil spray. Crack each egg into each ring and pop the yolk. When the egg white has gone from clear to white, remove the rings and flip the eggs.
- After 1 minute of cooking on the second side, place a piece of ham under each egg and a piece of cheese on top of each egg. This will cook the ham, melt the cheese, and keep the egg warm.
- When the cheese has melted, place the ham, egg, and cheese inside the biscuit and serve.
