Maple Apple Sausage Pockets
Breakfast biscuits make a wonderful maple-flavored lunchtime treat when stuffed with Jimmy Dean® Maple Pork Sausage, cheddar cheese and apples.
1 package Maple Premium Pork Sausage
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 large tart apple, diced
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cans (16 ounces each) refrigerated jumbo biscuits (16 biscuits)
2 teaspoons water
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar Maple syrup (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine sausage, cheese and apple in large bowl. Stir in walnuts, if desired.
Press or roll out each biscuit on lightly floured surface to a 5-inch circle. Spoon ¼ cup sausage mixture onto center of each biscuit. Beat egg with water; brush onto edges of biscuits. Fold in half; press edges together with fork to seal.
Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Brush tops with remaining egg wash; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with syrup, if desired.
