Breakfast Pockets

I made these tonight for the kiddos to have for breakfast in the morning, all I will have to do is pop them in the oven for a couple minutes and viola we have breakfast.  Since I wanted to share this recipe I made hubby and my neighbor try them tonight.  They both liked them although the neighbor said they could use a little more salt.  I like that I can freeze them and hubby can make himself one before going to work in the mornings. :)
