You know you’ve developed a winning recipe when every member of your six person family gives it their seal of approval. That includes the 14 month old, who happily ate a deconstructed version of these Stuffed French Toast and Sausage Sliders for brunch along with everyone else seated around our dining room table.
Hawaiian rolls are sliced and dunked in an egg mixture before being put on a griddle to brown and transform into perfect portable French toast. One half of each roll is slathered with whipped cream cheese and layered with slices of fresh strawberries and an oven baked sausage patty before being topped by the other roll half. These Stuffed French Toast and Sausage Sliders are the answer to feed a crowd breakfast or brunch in a snap!
Did you catch the key descriptor about the sausage in these breakfast sandwiches? They’re baked. BAKED. I refuse to make bacon in a skillet on the stove, instead, I always roast it in the oven. Which got me thinking I could do the same thing with sausage.
The key is finding the right pan for the job. You’ll need a heavy duty pan with high sides to contain any splatters that might occur while roasting. My KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 18″ Large Roaster was the perfect choice for the job, and it most certainly is a versatile tool that can be used for turkey and beyond. To get started on these sliders, I simply sliced bulk sausage into 1/2” rounds and lay them in the bottom of my Large Roaster. Place in your oven for 20 minutes at 400°F, and you’ll have beautifully cooked sausage without any splatter or trouble. No more cooking batches of sausage in a skillet!
