For a delicious variation on the American classic, try switching your usual meat with corned beef for these scrummy sliders. Topped with a freshly cooked egg for an extra protein boost, these are not only yummy they’re filling, too. Packed with flavour and perfect to eat with friends or family, they’re quick and easy to make so you won’t be slaving away in the kitchen for hours.

  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4


1Pre-heat the oven to 180°c/160°c fan/Gas 4

2Heat a good splash of rapeseed oil in a frying pan over a low to medium heat and add the sliced onions. Let them cook slowly then when they soften add the butter and the brown sugar to caramelise until they turn sticky.

3Remove the onions from the pan and set to one side for now.

4Add another drizzle of oil to the pan and throw in the spices and pepper.

5Now for the corn beef. Remove from its tin and, using 2 forks, pull the meat apart so you have some good shreds of beef. Add these to the spices in the pan, stir them in well and heat through until piping hot.

6Now slice open the brioche buns, pile up the corn beef, top with a slice of Swiss cheese and a good spoonful of the rested sweet onions on top of that. Pop then in the oven another for 5 minutes or just long enough to melt the cheese.

7Meanwhile, in a clean pan fry your eggs.

8Take the sliders out of the oven and pop the egg on top.

9Top with some good, hot mustard or your favourite sauce (optional).
