We had a full house at the beach this year for the Fourth of July.  We got to spend some time on the boat in the sunshine and we got to see some fireworks on the water later that night.  After a long day of celebrating, I knew I wanted something easy to make and hearty enough to feed the hungry crowd the next morning.

These breakfast sandwiches were the perfect solution and my mom helped me whip up a batch the next morning.  We prepared each of the ingredients first and finished up “assembly line style.”  We used eggs, cheese, sausage and ham, but you could change it up and add whatever you want.  Bacon would be great.  Or avocados and tomatoes…….

I think the secret ingredient that takes these sandwiches from good to great is the garlic-mustard-poppyseed- butter mixture.  It adds a little bit of tang that you didn’t even know you wanted.

You can also make the sandwiches the day before and reheat.  Then maybe you’ll get a chance to sleep in!

Baked Breakfast Sandwiches


  • 8 Slider Rolls, cut in half lengthwise
  • 8 eggs, cooked your way (I fried my eggs)
  • 16 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 sausage patties, cooked
  • 8 slices ham
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons poppyseeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

Place the bottom half of each roll in the bottom of the baking dish.

To assemble the sandwiches, start with a slice of cheese, then eggs (I used 1 per roll.)  Then ham, sausage and more cheese. Replace the tops to each roll.

In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, mustard, poppy seeds, and garlic powder. Brush the top of each roll generously with the butter mixture.

Bake covered for 12 minutes and then remove cover. Continue cooking for another 4-6 minutes or until the bread is toasted and and the cheese fully melted.

Remove and serve!

You can make these ahead. Just refrigerate overnight and bake when ready.

These sandwiches are so customizable, that is a word, right? If you don’t like any of the ingredients, leave them out!  Add bacon, take out the ham.  Add in some veggies.  The options are endless.
