Nothing beats a buttery, golden pie crust. I love any food that comes in a pie crust, whether it be sweet or savory.

Using store-bought refrigerated pie crust makes these hand pies a breeze to make. Extras can be frozen for later use. With 2 refrigerated pie crusts, you should get 7 hand pies, but this recipe is easy to double. To make them, place each pie crust between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out slightly. Then use a bowl that is about 4 inches in diameter  to cut as many circles of dough as you can. Reroll the scraps to cut another circle. You will need 2 circles of dough to form each hand pie.

The filling is a simple mixture of crumbled breakfast sausage, scrambled eggs, and shredded cheese. Use any cheese that you like.

Place a mound of sausage, egg, and cheese mixture on half of the dough circles and cover with the remaining circles. Use a fork to press down on the edges and seal them well. Brush the tops with egg wash. This will help them bake up golden and crispy. Cut a few slits in the top of each one to let the steam escape and bake at 4oo degrees F for about 18 minutes.

Tips for making Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Hand Pies:

  • These hand pies can be prepared in advance. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to bake them.
  • They also can be frozen before you bake them. Individually wrap them in plastic wrap and foil and freeze up to 3 months. When you bake them, add on an extra 5 to 10  minutes to the cooking time.
