Freezer-Friendly Ham & Cheese Pockets

Today’s recipe is one that was one of our favorite law school recipes. I haven’t made it since the law school days and had all but forgotten about it until I saw Amy’s recipe for Ham & Cheese Pockets.

Since our budget was so tight when Jesse was in law school, I only made this recipe when I was able to find ham on some amazing closeout price. Every once in awhile, Dillon’s would have it marked down to $0.49 to $0.99 for the small packages of thin-sliced lunchmeat.

I usually had a coupon to pair with this deal, so I rarely paid over $0.50 per package of lunchmeat. I could stretch one package to 5-6 Ham & Cheese Pockets and they were a special treat since we didn’t eat a lot of meat during that season of life.

At any rate, since we have more wiggle room in our grocery budget these days, I splurged on thick-cut ham this time around, and these turned out SO good. I can’t believe it’s been such a long time since I’ve made this recipe. It’s definitely something I want to make more often now that I remembered about it! :)

    HEY! Made these and my husband said they were great. Shared it with a friend who enjoyed them as well. She did 1/2 whole wheat flour and said they still came out delicious! So I will for sure try that out next time.

    I also plan to try some flavored crust like garlic parm :).

    Filling ideas to share:
    Turkey & pepper jack
    Pepperoni, mozzarella & a little pizza sauce
    Baked Chicken, Broccoli & a little Alfredo
    Scrambled Eggs & Sausage
    Baked Apples with Cinnamon Sugar :) :)

    Thanks for the recipe! <3

    this is a super silly question, but do you let the dough rise after you knead it? I plan to use the bread machine. I can take it out after it mixes, but my dough cycle includes a rising time. Thanks!

    I have tons of pizza dough in my freezer….could I use that instead of buying the ingredients to make my own?? Looks delicious and can’t wait to try it!
