Beef 'n' Egg Pockets Recipe

My mother shared the recipe for these hand-held snacks. They disappear whenever I make them. For added flavor, I sometimes toss in sliced fresh mushrooms or chopped green pepper. - Kathy Vail, Canavoy, Prince Edward Island.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato, egg, salt and pepper.
  • 3. Roll out pastry into an 18-in. x 9-in. rectangle; cut into 3-in. squares. Place a rounded tablespoonful of filling in the center of each square. Fold in half, forming triangles; crimp edges to seal. Place on greased baking sheets.

"I just followed the pastry recipe and made mini pizzas. I used white whole wheat flour and added 1 1/2 tsp of gluten. I also added some garlic and oregano. After they came out of the oven I brushed them with butter. They were amazing!!! Very flaky and delicious! I wouldn't do them for pizza again, but definitely with scrambled eggs and cheese!"
