Mushroom - Biscuit Dough Sandwich

Sandwiches/wraps are mostly made with bread, pitas, roti or tortillas. But when I didn’t have any of these and still wanted to make a sandwich, my creativity kicked in, out of desperation (as always!). I made a sandwich out of biscuit dough, not sweet ones, but country-style biscuits that can be found in the refrigerator section.

I don’t buy biscuit dough often. But on those days when you are dog tired and all you want is a hot bowl of soup and good bread to dunk in, these come in handy. Since I already use them as bread, I decided to experiment them in a sandwich. And it definitely worked. This is a convenient meal when you want to put together with what you have on hand. Any spicy left-over vegetables from your refrigerator would also work here.

Biscuit Dough and Oyster Mushrooms
Oyster mushrooms and biscuit dough.

I have used oyster mushrooms which cook fast. If you are using any other type of mushrooms, I would recommend sautéing the mushrooms first, followed by onions and tomato, like I did in Mushroom Masala.

Ingredients

Biscuit dough – 1 can
Oyster mushrooms – 1 pack, sliced
Onion – 1, sliced
Tomato – 2, sliced
Ginger – 1 inch piece, finely chopped
Garlic – 3 cloves
Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Salt
Oil

Method

Preheat the oven according to the directions in the biscuit dough package.

In a pan, heat a tsp of oil and splutter cumin seeds. Add onions, ginger and garlic. When onions become soft, add tomatoes, mushrooms and all the dry powders with salt. Cook until mushrooms are soft and everything comes together. Allow this to cool a bit.

Coat a non-stick baking pan with oil. Take eight biscuits from the package and flatten them by your hands by pulling the edges. Flatten them till they are large enough to hold the filling. Lay them on the cutting board, and place filling on four of the biscuits. Top with the remaining four biscuits. Stretch and pinch the corners to seal them properly. Place them on the baking pan and bake for the time specified in the package.

Allow them to cool for two minutes and serve warm.

Though I don't eat mushrooms, the picture is so tempting that I have to give it a try. May be with some other vegetable.

You all get such interesting food stuffs at your place. Superb idea, and pictures mind blowing. Mushrooms picture is looking pretty :)

That picture of mushrooms is a classic, Suganya! Quite a hearty recipe here, it tempts me to buy the biscuit dough :).

Latha said...

I liked the dish though I don't eat mushrooms. I can use vegetables of my choice. Can you please include the recipe for home made biscuit dough.

Cinnamon said...

Look very delicious, Suganya... I wonder if we get biscuit dough in our stores.. have to find out.. if yes then, i would try them straight away!!

bee said...

i've toyed with the idea of using biscuit dough, but all the breads i see seem to have transfats. do you know of a brand that doesn't?

Roopa said...

Biscuit dough thats interesting i never have tried nor do i know whether we get it. its sure looks great with the mushroom filling. :)

Sia said...

that 1st pic is gorgeous...

Rachna said...

biscuit dough? wow ...have to look for it in the shops... pics are amazing, the first one is just beautiful....

Suganya said...

Latha, Biscuit dough, from scratch? Well.. Am a bit lazy :D. If I am making this from scratch I will rather bake bread than making biscuits :)

Bee, I don't buy biscuit dough very often for the very same fact. Moderation is the key. I have hardly seen any brands other than Pillsbury in stores, so not much of an option there!

Cinnamon, Roopa, Rachna, You can find biscuit dough in the refrigerator section next to eggs and dairy.

Sandeepa said...

Makes me so very hungry...I can even smell the whiff of freshly baked biscuits

Poonam said...

Hi suganya, That is a really thoughtful sandwich!

Priya said...

That looks yummy Suganya ! I made something similar by using a basic tomato-onion filling in some home made bread dough and baking it. We used to get these in local bakeries in Hyd. Come school closing time and the smell wafting from these bakeries en route to home would be too enticing to ignore :)

Tee said...

Yet another great recipe for mushrooms! Like they say, 'Necessity is the Mother of all new Creations' ;)
Have you tried sauteeing oyster mushrooms in a little oil and seasoning with just salt & pepper? it tastes awesome.

TBC said...

Not a big fan of mushroom, just stopped by to say that your 1st pic is absolutely great.

Very cool! A mushroom lover would go crazy over this.

'Shroom pockets, Suganya, are a great, quick idea. It "might" be possible to get dough w/o trans fats at a health food store, but you can make your own dough w/ butter (far less damning). Of course, there goes the convenience factor...

Suganya said...

Priya, I know what you are talking abt.. Those savoury treats are some that I miss from bakeries here.

Tee, I have not tried that. They are so mellow, salt and pepper should work fine. I will try that sometime.

There you go Susan. Sometimes convenience comes before health factor :D. BTW, I like that mushroom pockets. Cud have named my sandwich so...

Raaga said...

I want the recipe for biscuit dough Suganya... these look so utterly tempting that I have to make them myself now.

Sharmi said...

That is a lovely recipe. I want to try it out. Never used biscuit dough before. its sound like a great idea.

Suma Gandlur said...

As you said I fall in the 'Hate it Camp' and my husband falls in 'Love it Camp' . I exclusively buy and prepare mushroom dishes for him.
Your sandwich is too tempting. I have a question since I have never tried biscuit dough. Do these sandwiches taste good when they are cold?

Bharathy said...

A pleasant surprise, awaiting you in my JFI-post.Pick them up when time permits:)!!

Suganya said...

Raaga, Pls don't ask me for the dough recipe. Am too lazy :) Pls see the above conversation among Latha, Susan and I.

Suma, these are to be had hotttt. These ready-made biscuit dough taste better only when they are hot.

Bharathy, Thank you so much dear! If you think I 'rock', then so be it ;)
