Asian Steamed Bacon Buns with Sesame Slaw
Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, we created this easy slider for the big game.
We wanted to pick items that were almost prepared, like Pillsbury Grands
so that you wouldn’t have to make biscuits from scratch. This recipe is adapted
from a recipe in Food & Wine magazine.
These sliders really are delicious and different. We hope you enjoy them!
