Homestyle Ham and Cheese Pockets

Homestyle Ham and Cheese Pockets recipe

Ingredients

  • 12 puff pastry squares (5 x 5 inches each)
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced ham
  • 6 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 pound Wisconsin Swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon water, and additional water, as needed
  • 1 egg
  • Gherkins, for serving
  • Carrot sticks, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Lay the puff pastry squares out on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Place 2 ounces of ham on half of the squares, leaving a 1/4-inch border all the way around.
  4. Spread 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard evenly over the ham, and top with 2 ounces of Swiss.
  5. Lightly brush the border of each square with water.
  6. Place the remaining square evenly on top of the cheese.
  7. With the prongs of a fork, seal the pastry all the way around.
  8. Combine the egg with the water, beat well.
  9. With a pastry brush, baste all of the squares with the egg wash, and prick the tops with a fork.
  10. Place the squares on a parchment-lined sheet pan (12 pockets per sheet pan) and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and puffy.
  11. Serve the pockets immediately with gherkins; garnish with carrot sticks.

Servings: 6

Any type of meat can replace the ham.
