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
- 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
- Cook the sausage over medium heat until browned.
- Add the hash browns and cook until potatoes are browned.
- 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:
- Preheat oven to 350° (or whatever temperature is noted on the biscuit package).
- Roll out each biscuit one at a time as flat as you can without tearing them on a floured surface.
- Lay about a tablespoon of shredded cheese on the center of the flattened biscuit.
- Top with eggs, then sausage/hash brown mixture.
- 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.
- Lightly spray the tops with the butter spray to give it a golden browning.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes (or according to the biscuit package instructions).
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.
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.
