This recipe for Baked Monte Cristo Sliders comes together quickly using super easy ingredients! To bake up a batch you’ll need:
- A Dozen Rolls – I prefer using Hawaiian rolls for their sweetness to make these Hawaiian Style Monte Cristo Sliders. But in this recipe, you can use any dinner rolls that you prefer. Another delicious breakfast recipe using these is my Hawaiian Roll French Toast!
- Meat – Ham and turkey! I always get the meat from the deli since it’s so much easier to work with when making these sliders.
- Egg Wash – Made of an egg, melted butter, and ground black pepper. This gets brushed over the tops of the rolls before baking for added flavor that browns up wonderfully!
- Cheese – My family and I prefer these sliders with swiss cheese. However, provolone or cheddar would also be tasty!
Once the rolls have been baked you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Then provide some raspberry preserves or strawberry jam for dipping sauce!
How To Make Monte Cristo Sliders
- Slice the whole package of rolls in half without separating them. Then place the bottom halves into the baking dish that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Arrange half of the cheese onto the bottom half of the rolls.
- Layer on all of the sliced ham, sliced turkey, and the remaining cheese slices. Afterward, place the top half of the rolls on.
- Whisk melted butter, egg, and pepper together in a small bowl. Brush this mixture all over the sliders.
- Bake the breakfast sliders in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the buns are toasted.
- Sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar and serve with a side of raspberry jam if desired!
Monte Cristo Sliders Recipe FAQs
Can These Breakfast Sliders Be Made Ahead Of Time?
You could partially assemble the recipe ahead of time. I’d suggest assembling the rolls, cheese, and meat and then placing the dish in the refrigerator.
The sliders can remain in the refrigerator for a couple of days like this. Then before baking just brush egg wash over the sliders before placing them in the oven.
What Should I Do If The Tops Of The Rolls Start To Brown Too Quickly While Baking?
Just remove the pan from the oven and loosely tent it with tin foil. Then return the covered pan to the oven to finish baking.
How Do I Thin Out The Jam For A Better Dipping Consistency?
Easy! Just place 1 cup of jam into a small saucepan combined with 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice. Heat the mixture while stirring until the jam has thinned out.
What’s The Best Way To Store Any Leftover Monte Cristo Sliders?
Place the leftover breakfast sliders into an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator. Eat the sliders within 3 days!
You can also wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and tin foil and then place them in the freezer. Once frozen they can be eaten for up to 3 months.
How Should I Reheat The Leftovers?
You can reheat them in the microwave for about 25 seconds. Or even in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 4 minutes.
