Aren’t these adorable? They look like mini hamburgers but they are actually steamed biscuits with sausage patties and cheddar cheese sandwiched in the middle, making them breakfast biscuit sandwiches.

I actually got the idea from a post I saw where someone made burgers with an Asian twist by using Chinese steamed buns as the burger buns. Unfortunately, I can’t find the post anymore. I did a search but haven’t been able to find it.

Anyhow, I liked the idea. And then I thought about making a breakfast sandwich. Instead of traditional Chinese steamed buns, I used Pillsbury biscuit dough because I learned a while ago that when they are steamed, they taste remarkably like steamed buns, but more buttery.

I used Pillsbury Grand Jr because I didn’t want enormous buns. I steamed each one for about 8-10 minutes. They came out the perfect size for my sandwich buns. Then I placed a precooked sausage patty in each one and a slice of cheese. And you end up with these fun steamed breakfast biscuit sandwiches. Yummy.

These work for breakfast or as a cute appetizer. Steamed Sausage Biscuit Sandwiches
