Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich with a cheesy biscuit

Ham, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches are one of my favorite breakfasts. Well, right next to biscuits and gravy and monkey bread, of course.

What’s your favorite breakfast?

If you enjoy a filling breakfast sandwich, you will be a big fan of these Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches. What’s not to love? They’re easy to make, take only a few minutes to prepare, and can be enjoyed on the go. There are a few tricks for creating the perfect breakfast slider, so be sure to check out all of my tips and tricks below.

I’m sure we’ve all been through a breakfast drive-thru and have gotten a breakfast sandwich on the go. Let me tell you something. Homemade is even better! Especially when you place that egg, ham, and cheese inside a homemade cheddar biscuit.

How to cook the egg for a breakfast sandwich:

The trick to getting a perfectly round egg is to cook it inside of a canning ring. I’ve found that a wide mouth ring works best, but if you’re working with smaller biscuits, and egg will fit into a regular sized canning ring just fine.

You’ll need to spray the inside of the ring with cooking spray to prevent the egg from sticking.

Once the egg is cooked, you’ll want to slide your ham right under the egg. This allows the ham to get crisp while keeping the egg warm, but not overcooking it.

At the same time, you’ll add your cheese to the top of the egg. The heat from the cooked egg should melt it in just a couple of minutes. At this point, you can pick up the whole stack and stick it inside the biscuit.

It’s easy to make just one of these ham and cheese breakfast sliders or make a whole bunch at the same time if you’re feeding a crowd. I like to wrap them up in foil when we’re on the go.

You can even stick them in your kid’s school lunch and they happily have breakfast for lunch! A solid breakfast is always the best way to start the day and these make ahead breakfast sliders will certainly leaving you feeling full and content all day long.

  • 4 biscuits links to biscuit recipes in Notes below
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese sharp recommended
  • olive oil spray


  • Slice biscuits lengthwise.
  • In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, set 4 wide mouth canning rings in the pan. Spray the insides of the rings and the base of the pan with the oil spray. Crack each egg into each ring and pop the yolk. When the egg white has gone from clear to white, remove the rings and flip the eggs.
  • After 1 minute of cooking on the second side, place a piece of ham under each egg and a piece of cheese on top of each egg. This will cook the ham, melt the cheese, and keep the egg warm. 
  • When the cheese has melted, place the ham, egg, and cheese inside the biscuit and serve.

  1. I wish I could see the full recipe but the excessive ads are covering up areas of content such as portions of the ingredients list and portions of instructions. The ads interfere in such a way that scrolling doesn’t allow to view the ad-covered portions of the recipe and even when trying to print, if the areas of the recipe are covered by an ad, the area doesn’t transfer over to the print file and just appears as blank. Please fix this issue. Thank you.

    1. Hi Danielle, I do apologize for the ads but recipe creators like myself wouldn’t be able to create this content unless we were compensated by the ad income. That being said, if you ever see an ad that is covering content, you can click on the grey three little lines in the bottom right corner of the ad and report it to my ad company. Occasionally a bad one slips through the cracks. I’ve never had an issue clicking the Print button in the recipe card at the bottom of the post and there are no ads on the printed version.
