For the Biscuits:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup buttermilk or milk

For the Sausage Patties:
1 pound of your favorite ground pork breakfast sausage, spicy or mild

For the Savory Berry Jam:
1 cup store-bought berry preserves (such as raspberry, blackberry, or mixed berry)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
A splash of Rombauer Zinfandel
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme or rosemary
Freshly ground black pepper
A pinch of salt

1Step 1 - Prepare the Biscuits

Preheat the oven to 450°F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in buttermilk until just combined.
Drop large spoonfuls – approximately 2-3 tablespoons of batter per biscuit – onto a lined baking sheet, spacing them about 2” apart, and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Remove from sheet and cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days or freeze for longer storage.

2Step 2 - Cook the Patties

Form the sausage meat into small patties, slightly larger than the biscuits.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cook in a skillet over medium heat until fully cooked and browned on both sides.
Drain on paper towels.
Once cooled, refrigerate covered for up to three days.

3Step 3 - Enhance the Berry Jam

In a small saucepan, combine the berry preserves, balsamic vinegar, a splash of Zinfandel (if using), fresh herbs, and a few grinds of black pepper.
Heat gently for a few minutes to meld the flavors.
Adjust seasoning with a pinch of salt if needed.
Store in the refrigerator and gently reheat before serving if desired.

4Step 4 - Reheating for Assembly

Reheat biscuits in an oven preheated to 350°F until warm, about 5-10 minutes.
Reheat sausage patties in a skillet over medium heat or in the oven on a baking sheet alongside the biscuits until hot.

5Step 5 - Assemble the Sliders

Slice each biscuit in half.
Place a warm sausage patty on the bottom half and top with a generous spoonful of the warm or room temperature savory berry jam.
Cover with the top half of the biscuit and serve warm.
