Leftover Brisket Hand Pies

Leftover Brisket Hand Pies

Wondering what to do with that pan of Brisket? Here’s a fun and easy idea everyone will love.
  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1 box frozen puff pastry, thawed and rolled out to an 8x11 rectangle

  • 2 cups roasted brisket, chopped or shredded

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 egg, beaten, for wash

  • Kosher Salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Everything seasoning

  • Aleppo Pepper (if you have it, great, otherwise don’t bother)


  1. Heat over to 400°
  2. Cover 2 half-sheet pans with parchment and spray lightly with non-stick spray.

  3. With a knife or pizza cutter, cut each pastry sheet into 8 rectangles.

  4. Place lengthwise down the center of 4 rectangles 2 T of shredded brisket, top with a bit of salt and pepper and sprinkle with cheese.

  5. Take a plain rectangle and lay it over the brisket rectangle and press down gently, using a fork all around the edges to seal them.

  6. Lay each hand pie on the parchment, brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle whatever you want on top.  I love Bagel Seasoning, and Aleppo Pepper.

  7. Bake for 27 minutes until puffy and golden.

  8. Enjoy!
