I was looking for an easy biscuit breakfast pocket recipe so I could make a batch to freeze for my husband to just pop in the microwave on his way out the door for work. The only ones I found either required that the biscuits were made from scratch (which I don’t have enough confidence to make) or the recipe called for crescent rolls (which is fine, but I wanted mine to be a bit bigger than that so they’d be filling for him). So I did a little experiment and this is what I came up with and they were exactly what I was going for.

Easy Biscuit Breakfast Pockets
Yield: 8 Breakfast Pockets

Ingredients

  • 1 roll of jumbo or Grands biscuits (8 in the roll)
  • 1 package of ground sausage patties (8 in the package)
  • 1 1/2 c frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tblsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 c cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Spray butter

Instructions

  1. Cook the sausage over medium heat until browned.
  2. Drain.
  3. Add the hash browns and cook until potatoes are browned.
  4. In another pan, scramble together the eggs, milk, and spices. You may choose to combine steps 3 & 4 together. If so, stir until set.

Assembling the pockets:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° (or whatever temperature is noted on the biscuit package).
  2. Roll out each biscuit one at a time as flat as you can without tearing them on a floured surface.
  3. Lay about a tablespoon of shredded cheese on the center of the flattened biscuit.
  4. Top with eggs, then sausage/hash brown mixture.
  5. Carefully fold the sides over, and then the ends over that (kind of like a burrito), and pinch shut so that none of the filling is exposed.
  6. Lightly spray the tops with the butter spray to give it a golden browning.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes (or according to the biscuit package instructions).
Assembly

To freeze:
Allow to cool on the baking sheet. Once cooled, place in the freezer until frozen. Store in a ziploc bag in the freezer for 3-6 months. To reheat, place on a paper towel and microwave for 1 1/2-2 minutes.

Optional Ingredients:
An array of diced vegetables can be added into the sausage/hashbrown mixture, the scrambled eggs, or all together in the same pan … onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. Experiment with whatever you like. Just remember, it doesn’t take much to fill up the biscuit pockets before they start to tear.
