If you come to this website for recipes…you are going to be disappointed. I don’t enjoy cooking at all. I do it on occasion but that is mainly when my super sweet awesome husband who LOVES to cook is working late or maybe out of town. Once in a great while though, I will see a recipe that I think looks good and decide I want to make it. This happens about once a year. So recently I saw a recipe for these ham and cheese crescent pockets. I picked up the ingredients while grocery shopping the other day and made them last night for dinner. Can you say YUMMMMMY?! Easy too which is key in my book. My family LOVED them and might I say, were even impressed by my culinary skills! Ha! Perfect for an easy dinner or a delicious breakfast.
We have been dealing with a sick doggie lately and I think this was a good and easy comfort food to help make us all feel a little better.
Enjoy! No really, ENJOY because they are SO SO good!!!

- 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 6 slices deli ham
- 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Unroll crescent dough onto a greased cookie sheet and press the perforations together to seal them. Roll lightly with a rolling pin to make even. (Do not push hard or you will roll the dough out too thin.)
Whisk egg and stir in garlic powder. Lightly brush surface of dough with egg wash. Lay ham slices over dough, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the ham.
Starting with the long edge closest to you, roll up tightly, like you would do with cinnamon rolls.
Spray a knife with nonstick spray and cut into 6 equal portions. Place on baking sheet, seam side down. Then brush tops with egg wash. Sprinkle poppy seeds onto each pocket, then bake for 17-19 minutes, until golden brown.
