Bacon & Sausage Breakfast sliders for Christmas morning. These Holiday Breakfast Sliders are cheesy, eggy, maple syrup and meaty goodness with Wright® Brand Bacon and Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Patties. This recipe can be a make-ahead breakfast with assembly needed only before baking on Christmas!
When it comes to Christmas morning, I think breakfast should be memorable yet casual. We know once the family is opening gifts, there is no sitting down at the table for a meal until gifts are over. That’s why I head to Randalls to get all the fixings to make these tasty Holiday Bacon & Sausage Breakfast Sliders. Half is made with savory, wood-smoked Wright® Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon. The other half—flavorful Jimmy Dean® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Turkey Patties. Add in a drizzle of maple syrup, scrambled eggs, and salty cheeses, you’ve got sweet and savory breakfast sliders that are as magical as the holidays! They are easy to make with options for making items ahead of time to cut the cooking time down. Gather around the tree and get ready to celebrate Christmas morning in the most delicious way.
BACON & SAUSAGE BREAKFAST SANDWICHES
I like to do all of my shopping for my Christmas breakfast two days before; that way if I realize I have forgotten anything, I have an extra day to run out to Randalls. I like shopping at Randalls because the prices are great, the produce is fresh, and I love how they set up their stores. Let’s be honest, the arrangement of the aisles can make or break a store and Randalls always has the best aisle game.
To guarantee that I’ve gotten all of my ingredients, I make the bacon and scrambled eggs the day before. That way, I cut my cooking time in half for Christmas morning and it gives me a chance to run through all my ingredients one final time. Though, feel free to do this the day of too!
To start this recipe, begin by preheating the oven to 350°F. Add 4 slices of Wright® Brand Bacon to a cookie sheet, roughly 1-1/2 inches apart from each other. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked. I prefer this bacon because it’s hand-selected, hand-trimmed, and thick-cut bacon. It’s been 100% wood smoked over hickory chips to impart delicious rich flavor, which is going to stand up to the rest of the ingredients in this dish. Let me just say that when the maple hits this bacon, magic happens.
In the meantime, make scrambled eggs. Cook them how you usually do, but here is my method if you need one.
Crack 10 eggs into a bowl and whisk together with milk and a pinch of salt until frothy.
On the stove in a non-stick pan, melt unsalted butter over medium-low heat. Add eggs to the pan. Scramble the eggs with a spatula, stirring and scraping every 30 seconds. When they are fluffy and cooked, remove from the heat and set aside.
From there, grease a 9×13 or 9×9 baking dish with unsalted butter. Using a bread knife, cut your slider buns in half. Add the bottom half of the slider buns to the dish.
Lightly drizzle maple syrup over the slider buns. On one-half of the sliders, layer the cooked Wright® Brand Bacon, and on the other half, the Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Patties. They are fully cooked, so you can go straight from the package to the slider buns with ease!
Then, layer up those tasty scrambled eggs you made on top of the bacon and sausage.
After that, it’s all cheesy. Add slices of provolone and cheddar cheese, and then add the tops to the buns of the sliders. Put the dish into the oven that’s still at 350°F for 10 minutes. Pull it out to brush the tops with melted butter and sesame seeds to then bake in the oven for another 5 minutes.
When they come out, the tops should be golden brown and you’ll be able to smell all of the amazing flavors going on. Serve them up with fresh coffee and some holiday cheer!

- 6 slices Milk Cheddar Cheese

Pre-heat over to 350°F.
Add Wright® Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon to a cookie sheet, roughly 1-1/2 inches apart from each other. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked.
In the meantime make your scrambled eggs by cracking 10 eggs into a bowl and whisking them together with milk and a pinch of salt.
On the stove in a non-stick pan melt 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter over medium-low heat. Add eggs to the pan. Scramble the eggs and let them cook. Stirring every 30 seconds to move cooked eggs from the center of the pan to the edges and pushed uncooked egg to the center to cook. When they are fluffy and cooked, remove from heat and set aside.
Grease a 9×13 or 9×9 baking dish (which every your slider buns best fit in, mine worked in a 9×9) with 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter. Using a bread knife cut your slider buns in half. Add the bottom half of the slider buns to the baking dish.
Drizzle the maple syrup over the slider buns. On one half of the sliders layer the cooked Wright® Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon and on the other half, the Jimmy Dean® Refrigerated Fully Cooked Turkey Patties.
Top the meats with the scrambled eggs and then layer on the cheese slices. Add the tops of the slider buns on top of the cheese.
Put the baking dish of sliders into the oven for 10 minutes. In the meantime melt the 1 tablespoon of butter. Remove sliders from the oven and brush on the melted butter. Top with sesame seeds. Add back to the oven for 5 more minutes before removing from the oven to cool for a couple of minutes then serving.
Make bacon & scrambled eggs the night before for quicker assembly and cook time the morning of. Doing these things ahead of time will drop your prep time to 5 minutes and your cook time down to 15 minutes.
I love these sliders because they give everyone what they want. No bacon versus sausage debate will be going on with these delicious sandwiches! Though, if you want to combine the bacon & sausage together for the ultimate breakfast slider—feel free to do that, too!
