Turkey Cheese Pockets (Or Ham and Cheese Pockets)

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

These are so easy to make for a quick hot lunch and taste so much better then the pockets you can buy in the store. You can also use jarred pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese to make pizza pockets as well.

I took the concept and made them for breakfast. I was tired of buying the expensive ones with only 4 in a box. They turned out great. Next I will try freezing them. I can't wait to taste the pizza pockets. The kids will love making those! Thank you, Karen!
