Sausage Egg Cheese Pocket

In this article, we’ll bite into a savory Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Hand Pie with a biscuits and a warm scrambled egg filling accentuated with Cheddar cheese.

Making everything is extraordinarily easy. You only need a few ingredients .. ok start working

Making Hand Pie Filling

The filling is Basic Breakfast.  Fry up some breakfast sausage over medium heat.  Crumble it with a wooden spatula as it cooks. Beat some eggs with a little milk.  When the sausage starts to brown, add the egg mixture to the pan.  Scramble up the eggs just until they begin to set. They should be ever-so-slightly under-done.  They’ll get a chance to finish off in the oven.

Assemble & Bake Hand Pies

Assembling hand pies is actually quite fun. Flatten a refrigerator biscuit (I used Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits) into a circle about 3 1/2 inches wide. Sprinkle some cheese in the middle and dollop on a heaping Tablespoon of filling.( sausage and egg)
Gather the edges of the dough around the filling and pinch closed.
Put the balls into a greased pie pan with the seams on the bottom. Brush the tops with a beaten egg
Bake for 16 to 20 minutes until golden brown. This recipe only makes 10 pizza balls which is perfect for an after school snack but when I am making these for more people, I use a 9×13 inch pan instead. I just follow the same recipe and increase the baking time a bit.
