Ham and Cheese Pockets
My kids love these and I make them on busy nights at least 1-2 times per month.
I don't even need to list the ingredients, it's too easy!
Make your favorite pizza dough recipe (there are a million online) - mine is:
1 pkg yeast
1.25 cups water
1 tsp salt
2 TBS oil
2.5 cups flour
Mix it all with a fork (don't need to let the dough rise) and then roll it out to the shape you want, constantly dusting with flour.
I can usually make 6 pockets with this recipe. I just make 6 rectangles, fill them with sliced ham and shredded cheddar (I always use the bar, not bagged - tastes MUCH fresher). Pinch the sides closed and lay on cookie sheet seam-side down. Brush beaten egg whites on top, cook at 425 degrees for 15-25 minutes until tops are lightly browned
