I am not gonna lie.  These were to die for...and so versatile!  You can put anything in the middle!  I froze about 20 of these and they were delicious just nuked in the microwave a little bit.  The dough is DELICIOUS!

Breakfast Pockets
Recipe from
§  1 1/2 tblsp yeast
§  1/2 c warm water (110 degrees)
§  3/4 c evaporated milk (110 degrees)
§  1/2 c vegetable oil
§  1/4 c sugar
§  1 egg
§  1 tsp salt
§  3 1/2 c flour
In a bowl, dissolve yeast in the water. Add milk, oil, sugar, egg, salt, and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough flour until it makes a soft dough but do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Once the dough is done, punch down. Cut into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece into 7 in circle on a floured surface. Top with 1/3 c filling, fold, and pinch shut. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
§  1 lb bulk sausage
§  1/2 c onion, chopped
§  1 1/2 c frozen hashbrown potatoes, thawed
§  7 large eggs
§  3 tblsp milk
§  1/2 tsp salt
§  1/2 tsp pepper
§  1/2 tsp garlic salt
§  pinch of cayenne pepper
§  2 c cheddar cheese, shredded
Cook the sausage and onion over medium heat until browned. Drain. Add the hashbrowns, eggs, milk, and spices. Cook and stir until set. Sprinkle with cheese and keep warm.
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.
