Pork Pocket Pasties Recipe

I'm in my 70's and have spent many happy hours in the kitchen. I most often cook from scratch, but I can't resist these delectable pasties that call for frozen has browns.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2 cups frozen hash browns, thawed
  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 pita breads (6 inches), halved
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • 1. Crumble sausage into a large skillet; cook over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the hash browns, carrot, onion, salt and pepper. Cook until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese. Spoon into pitas.
  • 2. Place on an ungreased baking sheet; brush outside of pitas with butter. Bake at 400° for 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings.
