We took the classic sausage biscuit sandwich and made it mini. Adorable breakfast sliders, you have our hearts.
Make a tray of small biscuits by baking the whole batch close together in a pan, then slicing the warm pastries into neat little squares. Next up: sheet tray eggs (add vegetables if you’re so inclined), then cover them with sliced American cheese. Cut the cheese-covered eggs into squares the same size as the biscuit, then assemble your sandwich—don’t forget the tiny sausage patty, and sides of Sriracha and mayo for dipping.

½ cup (4 ounces) Land O Lakes Salted Butter, frozen
2 ½ cups (about 10 ounces) self-rising soft-wheat flour (such as White Lily)
1 cup whole buttermilk, chilled
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
8 large eggs
¼ cup whole milk
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
5 American cheese slices
16 breakfast sausage patties (such as Jimmy Dean) (about 24 ounces)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 475°F. Grate frozen butter into a large bowl; add flour, and toss well to coat. Chill 15 minutes. Add buttermilk, and stir until a sticky, shaggy dough forms. Coat a 9-inch square metal baking dish liberally with cooking spray. Scrape dough into prepared baking dish, and smooth dough with the back of a spoon. Using a sharp knife,score dough into 16 even squares. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and brush with melted butter. Let stand 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Coat a 9-inch square metal baking dish with cooking spray, and add egg mixture. Bake at 475°F until eggs are set, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and top evenly with cheese slices. Return to oven, and bake at 475°F until cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oven, and cut into 16 even squares.
Cook sausage patties according to package directions. To assemble the sliders, cut out biscuits, and split using a fork or sharp knife. Place 1 sausage patty and 1 egg-and-cheese square on bottom half of each biscuit, and cover with biscuit tops.
