Sunday Brunch: Puff Pastry Pockets

Hey Friends! Well, it's that time of week's the Sunday brunch series! This week's recipe came from an attempt to create a requested lunch box item that I don't necessarily approve of...
hot pockets.
seriously, gross.  I mean, no offense if you like them...I've just really swayed from all things frozen and we are dye free in our find myself trying to find quick alternatives, often.

Anywho, hang in there, b/c these are far from hot fact they need a dreamier more fitting name...I created this little recipe in hopes of freezing them to see how they taste re-heated...but, every single time I make them, they are devoured.  SO, without further adieu I give you:

Puff Pastry Pockets
1 Puff Pastry Sheet (these come 2 per box) cut into six pieces
1 C shredded cheddar cheese (give or take)
4 oz cooked breakfast sausage (I used Jimmy Dean)
6 eggs beaten with a teensy tiny bit of milk
sliced green onions
2 T melted butter.

Preheat oven to 400*.

Cook sausage , add eggs and scramble.  I usually use egg whites in my scrambled eggs, however, for this recipe it is better to have heavier eggs.

Roll out each pastry square.  Place about 1/4 c of scramble in center of dough, top with cheese and a sprinkling of green onions.

Fold up sides and pinch dough together to seal.
Brush melted butter over top and bake for 15 minutes (one can brush with an egg wash as well, which creates a nice golden pastry top, we just like the way the butter flavors the pastry).  Top with a sprinkling of cheese and place back in oven for 1 minute, until melted. Voila!

These are seriously one of the fastest breakfast recipes ever, but, the beauty of these little buttery morsels is, one can add whatever toppings they would like...sausage can be replaced with bacon, cheddar with a little swiss and spinach, or add some mushrooms and tomatoes...
AND you can customize each pocket for each picky little individual at your table.
