Ham and Cheese Pockets | www.tasteandtellblog.com

It’s been one of those days. You know – the kind when you look up at the clock, realizing it’s 5 o’clock and the house is a mess, you still haven’t showered, your kids are running around without clothes on, and someone just knocked on the door. Oh yeah, and you have no idea what you are going to make for dinner.

Please don’t tell me I’m the only one.

The reality of it is that this is what a lot of days look like for us. I wouldn’t trade being able to stay home with my kids for the whole world, but wow – sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming. Which is why I always tend to be drawn to those easy meals. And I’m back at it again today, with a super easy and super fast dinner idea. Or even a lunch idea.

I was actually inspired by a Pillsbury commercial. I realized how easy it would be to make any kind of sandwich in a biscuit. And it doesn’t get much easier than these Ham and Cheese Pockets. I’m working on a little project that I am super excited to share with you all (hopefully next week!) and needed to use up a couple of ingredients, so that is where my inspiration for the filling came from. But the beauty of these little pockets is that you can fill them with whatever you have on hand. Leftover chicken and cheddar cheese? Sure! Deli turkey and swiss? Why not?!?

I may be a hot mess when my husband gets home from work, but at least I will have dinner on the table!

Ham and Cheese Pockets
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
An easy weeknight dinner, biscuits are filled with ham and cheese and baked to perfection.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 can (16 oz) jumbo buttermilk biscuits
  • 4-8 slices of deli ham
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and mustard until smooth.
  3. Open the can of biscuits. On a work surface, lay out the biscuits and flatten to slightly larger than the normal size. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on each of the biscuits. Place 1-2 slices of deli ham on each biscuit, followed by equal amounts of cheese.
  4. Fold the biscuits in half, enclosing the ham and cheese, forming a half moon shape. Pinch the edges together, or use a fork to seal the edges. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the biscuits are browned and cooked through.

    It’s probably a bad sign that I already have those nights…and I don’t even have kids yet! Yikes.

    Things look like that around here nearly every day! And we do the manic 5:00 shuffle trying to make the house clean and presentable before daddy gets home 😉

    These were really good and quick and easy to put together… Was thinking a dipping sauce would be good with them next time… Maybe a little sour cream and mustard mixed together to mimic the taste of the cream cheese and mustard on the inside…
