Ingredients & Alternatives

  • Pork Sausage: Opt for ground pork sausage that’s pre-seasoned for extra flavor. Homemade pork sausage also works well.
  • Vegetables: Mix in diced yellow onion and colorful bell peppers for added crunch and flavor.
  • Puff Pastry: Utilize store-bought puff pastry for ease and quick preparation.
  • Cheese: Sharp cheddar is recommended for its strong flavor, though any favorite cheese can be substituted.
  • Eggs: Requires about 2 cups of scrambled eggs, which usually means 8-10 eggs, depending on their size. Customize the scramble to your liking or follow a specific recipe for enhanced taste.

Storing and Freezing

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days. They can be reheated in the microwave or oven, although the pastry won’t be as flaky. Freeze cooked pockets for up to three months and reheat as needed.

Cowboy Pastry Pockets



  • ½ pound (226 g) ground pork sausage
  • 2 tablespoons yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups scrambled eggs, prepared to your preference
  • 1 cup (113 g) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 large egg, beaten for egg wash
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set to 400°F (204°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the Filling: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, onions, and peppers until the sausage is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender.
  3. Prepare the Pastry: On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 10×10 inch (25×25 cm) square. Cut each sheet into four 5×5 inch (12.5×12.5 cm) squares.
  4. Assemble: Place each pastry square on the prepared sheets. Divide the scrambled eggs and sausage mixture among the squares, topping each with cheese. Fold the corners over to form a pocket.
  5. Apply Egg Wash: Brush the pastry with beaten egg.
  6. Bake: Place in the oven for 16-18 minutes, or until golden and puffed up.
