What Are Sliders?
Believe it or not, sliders were first invented in Wichita, Kansas in 1921 by the first White Castle restaurant. The mini burgers are believed to have been named for the large amount of grease used to cook them, which caused them to “slide right down” as customers ate. Today, White Castle still sells their infamous burgers. However, they aren’t the only ones.
Over the years, the recipe has evolved and been adapted countless times and sliders are even served in some of the most prestigious restaurants in the country. Today, the term is no longer exclusively reserved for burgers and is often used to refer to any type of small sandwich like these turkey breakfast sliders!
The Best Breakfast Sliders Ingredients
More than your average breakfast sandwich, this turkey sliders recipe is loaded with ingredients for a satisfying breakfast or brunch that’s sweet, savory, and everything you could ever need. Here’s what we used:
- Slider Buns – For a fluffy texture and sweet flavor, we love St. Pierre’s brioche sliders, but any small slider buns would work just fine.
- Eggs – Be sure to leave your scrambled eggs just slightly undercooked, because they’ll continue to bake in the oven!
- Turkey – We use regular deli sliced turkey pieces, but any deli meat or protein could be substituted.
- Chives – Added for a sharp onion taste.
- Cheese – Three different cheeses including Pepperjack, Mozzarella, and Parmesan are used to create the sliders recipe of your dreams!
- Butter – This is brushed on top of the bread for an extra rich taste and a slightly crispy exterior.
Feel free to mix and match your favorite ingredients to switch up the flavor of these sliders! For instance, some of our favorite additions include:
- Turkey Bacon
- Leftover Chicken
- Sliced Tomatoes
- Sliced Peppers
