Biscuit sandwich revolution

Going beyond the basic egg-and-cheese combo, chefs are getting creative with what they put on biscuit sandwiches. From pulled pork to fried chicken to smoked fish, biscuits allow chefs to think outside the traditional bread options and put a slightly Southern twist on sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
