Add in these Fruit Kabobs for Kids and you have a wonderfully balanced, not to mention colorful spread that will make both the kids AND moms happy.

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.

These quick and easy Ham and Cheese Pockets are a great way to use up leftover ham! Or grab ham at the deli and create a quick lunch that the whole family will love!

  1. 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!
