Steamed Sausage Biscuit Sandwiches

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

  1. Wondering if you‘ve ever tried freezing these. I wonder if you can just steam them directly. I’ve bought frozen bao before…so why not. Just wondering as this would be great make ahead.

  2. These look fantastic!  I love steamed buns and with a new patty and cheese inside it will make it even better.

  3. if I don’t have a steamer, is there a modification?

    • Hmm, well you can sort of make your own steamer with a pot and a plate? If you fill the pot with some water and you can put a plate inside, and put something underneath so that the plate sits above the water, and then you can put the buns on the plate, close the lid on the pot and try steaming that way.

  4. When my mom didn’t feel like making bao (steamed bun) dough, she’d always pick up a can of biscuits!

    You could put ground sausage & cheese and fold it up just like a bao; we always add 1/2 a hard boiled egg, too. Breakfast Bao!

    • Interesting. I had no idea you could steam biscuit dough into bao until very recently. The breakfast bao sounds good too.

  5. I wish I had read this earlier, before I went to the grocery store! I definitely have to try this this weekend–looks unique and tasty 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
