Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pulse both flours, sugar, and 2 teaspoons salt in a food processor to combine. Add butter and pulse just until small pieces remain. Add 6 tablespoons ice water and pulse until dough just starts to clump together. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary.

  • Turn dough out onto a clean work surface; divide in half. Wrap each half in plastic and press to form a flat rectangle. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day, or freeze up to 1 month.

  • On a lightly floured piece of parchment, roll out each piece of dough into a 10-by-14-inch rectangle. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together 6 eggs, milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally and breaking into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl. Remove all but 1 tablespoon fat from pan, reduce heat to medium, and add egg mixture. Cook, stirring, until eggs are soft and just set, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, sprinkle with cheese and chives, and stir in sausage. Let cool slightly.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees with racks in upper and lower thirds. Transfer one rectangle of dough on parchment to a baking sheet. Arrange filling into nine 2 1/2-by-3 1/2-inch rectangles on dough (in a 3-by-3 grid), leaving a 1-inch border all around. Whisk remaining egg; brush borders between filling with egg wash. Top with remaining rectangle of dough. Using the sides of your hands, gently press dough to seal egg-wash grid. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 9 rectangles.

  • Divide pockets between 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Use a fork to score edges of each pastry. Brush tops with egg wash, then dock a few vents in top crusts with fork. Season with pepper. Refrigerate until firm, 15 minutes.

  • Bake, rotating sheets once, until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

Cook's Notes

These can be baked and then frozen for up to a month: Just transfer completely cooled pockets to a resealable plastic bag and freeze. Reheat in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes.
