Jimmy Dean Sausage Pockets

Yield 20 pockets


  • 1 package Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage, cooked crumbled and drained
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 (12-ounce) package refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine sausage, onions and cheese; mix well and set aside. Press or roll each biscuit to form a 5-inch circle. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of meat mixture in center of each circle; moisten edges of dough with a small amount of water and carefully fold dough over mixture to form half-moon shaped pockets. Press edges with fork to seal. Place on ungreased baking sheets. In small bowl, combine egg and water; lightly brush mixture on top of each pocket. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
