Hearty Breakfast Mini-Pockets

One of my favorite recipe ideas I’ve come up with is Hearty Breakfast Mini-Pockets. I mean, really, who doesn’t love a little pocket of meat, cheese, and egg. That’s a recipe for a smile if I’ve ever heard one.
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 tspn scrambled egg
  • 2 tspn breakfast sausage cooked
  • 2 tspn cheese grated or sliced, it doesn’t matter
  • 2 tspn coconut oil or butter, if you prefer, but I like coconut oil for the health-factor


  1. Preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Using a rolling pin, flatten your bread slices individually.
  3. Using a large round cookie cutter or cup (that’s what I had to use, since I don’t have a round cookie cutter), one large circle from each flat bread slice.
  4. Place 1 tspn of egg, 1 tspn of sausage and 1 tspn of cheese in the center of each slice
  5. Fold the bread in half and, using a fork, crimp 1/4-inch around the edge.
  6. Spread 1 tspn of coconut oil over the top of each folded pocket.
  7. Place pockets in the oven on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until toasted.
  8. Enjoy!
