Let’s Do Brunch: Denver Omelet Sliders

Stop what you’re doing.  Right now.  Stop. Get out a pen and paper.  Write down everything I’m about to tell you.  You’ll want to stop by the grocery on your way home tonight to get everything you need to make these sliders in the morning.  Trust me.

We all know the ham and cheese slider recipe that has taken the internet, blogs, Pinterest and everything else by storm right? Those are great but I got really bored, really fast and I started thinking of all the other things I could use the same technique for.   Enter Denver Omelet Sliders.  What?! Am I crazy?! Okay maybe a little but trust me when I say you need to make these for brunch this weekend!  Your tummy will thank me!

Denver Omelet Sliders

Olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 small green bell pepper, diced
8 large eggs
½ cup milk
Salt & pepper

1 (12 count) package King’s Hawaiian Honey Wheat Rolls
8 slices your favorite deli ham
8 slices American cheese (preferably the melty, processed kind)
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
½ cup butter, melted
1 Tablespoon onion powder
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and peppers and saute 2-3 minutes or until translucent and starting to soften. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt & pepper. Pour egg mixture into pan with onions and peppers. As the eggs begin to set, gently stir them with a spatula, forming large curds. Continue cooking until no visible runniness remains. Set aside.

With a sharp knife cut rolls in half, setting aside the top halves. Place the bottom half of the rolls in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer the ham evenly over the rolls, top with scrambled eggs, and sliced cheese. Place the tops of the rolls over the cheese and press gently.

In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, sesame seeds, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over rolls. Cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes or so.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until tops are toasty and the cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes to let everything cool a bit. Serve warm.
