Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Spinach And Cheese Breakfast Pockets

Puff pastry, also known as pâte feuilletée, originated in France in the 17th century. It is made by layering butter between layers of dough, resulting in a light and flaky pastry. Puff pastry gained popularity in the United States in the 20th century and has been used in both sweet and savory dishes.

  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper

  • 1/4 cup diced mushrooms

  • 1/4 cup diced tomato

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 egg, beaten


  • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the thawed spinach, shredded mozzarella cheese, diced onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, tomato, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Mix until well combined.

  • Place a spoonful of the spinach filling onto one half of each square, leaving a small border around the edges.
  • Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg. Fold the other half of the pastry over the filling and use a fork to seal the edges. Repeat for all 6 squares.

  • Make sure to fully seal the edges of the pockets to prevent any filling from leaking out.
  • Feel free to add in other ingredients such as diced ham or bacon for added protein.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara or ranch.
  • Leftover pockets can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
