Ham And Cheese Pocket

Have you ever had a day where you just want to eat something really good but with a twist? We do that here a lot. I take something that I know we love and add twists to it. Like ham and cheese sandwiches. The regular ham and cheese sandwich on bread or a grilled cheese are the classic versions of this. Here is our twist on the famous combo. It is a FAV here!

Ham and Cheese Pockets

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print



  • 2 1/4 tsp (one packet) Active dry yeast
  • 1 cup Warm water (110 -115 degrees)
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbs Oil
  • 3 1/2 cups Flour (I used unbleached flour)
  • 1 Egg (beaten)


  • Ham (Either freshly sliced ham from a ham you roasted or lunch meat)
  • Cheese (Sliced or shredded. Whatever kind you want to use.)
  • Anything else you want to add. (tomatoes, greens, onions, fruit, etc)



  1. Dissolve yeast in the warm water.
  2. Add sugar, salt, oil to the yeast.
  3. Add the flour.
  4. Knead until it forms a dough ball.
  5. Let dough rise for 30 minutes (until doubled)
  6. Punch down the dough.
  7. Knead and shape the dough until you get the thickness you want for your crust. I use my fingertips a lot for this process. You can also use a rolling pin.

Assembling the pocket

  • Once you get the crust to the thickness you want, lay it out on the pan.
  • Now layer your ingredients on it.
  • Gently fold the dough in half.
  • Seal the edges of the dough.
  • Baste with the egg on top.
  • Bake at 350 until golden brown.
