Freezer-friendly Ohio State Fair Maple Butter Breakfast Sliders are a no-brainer on busy mornings! Piled high with protein-packed eggs and turkey sausage, this handheld breakfast can be prepped in just half an hour.
- Prep: 30 mins
- Yields: 6 servings
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Line a 12x9" rimmed baking tray with parchment paper, coating both sides of the parchment with nonstick spray or butter. Beat eggs, salt and pepper until combined. Pour egg mixture into prepared tray and place into center rack of pre-heated oven.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until eggs are barely set in the middle. Once you remove the eggs from the oven, raise the oven temp to 400°F.
While the eggs are baking, beat softened butter, brown sugar and maple extract until combined. Set aside.
Lay the bottoms of the slider buns on a cookie tray. Cover with ½ slice of American cheese and one sausage patty per slider.
Cut slightly cooled sheet tray eggs into 12 square pieces and add 1 egg piece to each slider, cover with top bun.
Spread the butter/sugar topping evenly over the tops of the slider buns (approximately 1 tbsp. per slider).
Put the tray of assembled sliders on the top rack of the 400°F oven for 8-10 minutes, until the butter mixture has started to caramelize and gets crunchy at the edges.
12x9" is a fairly obscure sheet tray size. You could easily substitute a 9x13" cake pan, or better yet, double the eggs and use a full size cookie sheet. Cook times may vary with these substitutions. With the extra eggs, either add an extra protein punch to your sliders by making them double-decker or put them in your fridge or freezer for easy weeknight meals.
