Ham and Cheese Pockets 550

Make hot and yummy Ham and Cheese pockets at home!  This is an easy and tasty dinner that’s ready in about 25 minutes if you use a premade dough and under an hour for dough made from scratch.

This recipe is easy to adapt to your family’s tastes, there are lots of ways to mix it up.  You can add more vegetables to the mix I have used bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, added to what is already listed in the recipe.  Use different types of cheeses.  Serve with a side of mustard for dipping. Try using peppered ham or other seasoned ham in place of the plain ham. Before baking, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with caraway, poppy or sesame seed, or use a mixture of all three.  I have also used crescent dough and puff pastry dough for different effects as well.   There are so many ways to make these and they are always a tasty dinner!
