Potato Pockets

Potato Pockets
16 Min

Our Potato Pockets are sort of like shortcut pierogies. We stuff biscuit dough with a buttery mixture of mashed potatoes and onion before baking them up until they're golden brown and delicious. They're great for snacking on or serving at a party with your favorite dipping sauce!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/4 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) refrigerator buttermilk biscuits

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a small skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter and saute onions 6 to 8 minutes, or until they begin to brown. 
  3. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, salt, pepper, and onions; mix well.
  4. Separate each biscuit and flatten. Place a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture into the center of each biscuit. Fold biscuit dough in half to form a half-circle and pinch the edges together with your fingers. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.


If you want to jazz up the flavor a little, add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder along with the other seasonings.
