Cheesesteak Sliders

FILLING: Spread cut sides of roll bottoms with 4 ounces softened cream cheese. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 1 sliced green bell pepper and 1 sliced yellow onion until tender and starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Add 1 tablespoons Worcestershire
sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in 8 ounces thinly sliced cooked top sirloin steak or deli roast beef and 1/2 cup sliced pickled peppers (such as cherry peppers or peperoncini peppers). Arrange beef mixture over cream cheese. Top with 4 ounces sliced provolone cheese.

Breakfast Sliders

FILLING: Cook 8 slices coarsely chopped bacon in an extra-large skillet until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. grease from skillet.
Whisk together 8 eggs, 1/4 cup milk, 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl. Add egg mixture to skillet.
Cook over medium heat, running a spatula around edges as mixture sets and lifting egg mixture to let uncooked portion flow underneath. Continue cooking until egg mixture is just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. (Surface will still be moist.) Remove from heat. Fold in 1 1/2 cup shredded white Cheddar cheese and the bacon.
