Today we are bringing you another Air Fryer recipe. These Air Fryer Breakfast Pockets are light, flaky and an all in one breakfast option. They were made with a Pillsbury Crust and are best cooked frozen.


You will need:

  • Ground pork
  • Eggs
  • Whole milk
  • Velveeta cheese
  • Pillsbury pie crusts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Gallon ziplock bags
  • Parchment paper
  • Cooking spray

Air Fryer Breakfast Pockets

Here’s my method…

Roll out the crust and cut the crust into two medium-size circles. If you don’t have a medium-size cookie cutter, that’s okay. I usually use my favorite cereal bowl to form the circles.

You should be able to make about two circles with each pie crust. Then I form the remaining dough in a ball, roll it out and make it into another circle.

Place about two spoonfuls of the filling into each pocket. Then, spread egg wash on the inside edges of the pocket. Fold the pocket forming a moon shape (as pictured above) and crimp the folded edges of the pocket with a fork.

I always massage a little more egg wash along the crimps and seams of the pocket just to make sure they are sealed properly.


Place the pockets on parchment paper and freeze. I prefer to place the pockets in a ziplock bag to freeze since I don’t always cook the pockets the same day or even the next day.

Make sure to freeze them so that when you’re ready to cook them they hold up properly in the Air Fryer while cooking.

Once you’re ready to eat them, place the pockets into your pre-heated Air Fryer for about 15 minutes. I can cook two pockets at a time in my Air Fryer.

Be sure not to overcrowd them. This will cause them to stick to each other.

If you don’t have an Air Fryer, simply fry the pockets in vegetable oil until brown. Then serve them with your favorite jelly or syrup. This is a perfect breakfast for when you’re on the go!
