If you happen to not have leftover Ham, you could certainly use sliced deli ham. We also used Swiss Cheese, because we like the combo of Ham and Swiss, but any cheese you like will work. Besides the ham and cheese all you need are a few simple ingredients.

Ham and Cheese Pocket Simple Ingredients

To get started, open the tube of biscuits and separate each one. Use a cutting board and rolling pin to flatten each biscuit into a thin layer.

Note: if the biscuits become sticky, lightly flour the cutting board and rolling pin.

Lift the flattened biscuit off the surface to ensure it is not sticking and then add a spoonful of ham and cheese to the center of it.

Brush some egg white on one side of the biscuit; then fold the biscuit over  and seal with a fork dipped in egg white, pressing the two pieces of the biscuit together firmly.

Ham and Cheese Pocket Assembly

Lightly brush on some melted butter and sprinkle with oregano.

Lay the pockets on a sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.

Ham and Cheese Pockets Ready for the Oven

Let them cool for a few minutes and then serve with honey mustard or any dipping sauce of your choice. Easy peasy!

Each bite of these Ham and Cheese Pockets are filled with savory goodness.

  1. No way! I made these by mistake lol I was trying to make a different recipe and realized I didn’t have the ingredients needed for the original recipe so I used what I had. I will admit that yours is much more fancy – I didn’t add anything to the biscuit surface. 😉 My family absolutely loved them. I am sure yours are good as well and will have to try adding the spice to the biscuit dough.

  5. Great idea for leftovers — or just because they sound really good! I like “flexible” recipes where you can use the ingredients you have on hand – no swiss cheese, use what you’ve got! I would love it if you would consider linking sometime to Busy Monday at A Pinch of Joy, a Sunday through Thursday link party for ideas that make life easier, better and more fun!
