We don’t have any kids yet, well, unless you count a four-legged fluffy orange cat as one. That doesn’t mean we can’t throw together a kid-friendly snack here and there. We made these cute little pizza pockets for Pillsbury and fell in love with how easy and tasty they were.

How to Make Ham and Broccoli Pockets

Buy a can of biscuit dough (try not to jump when you open it, Joanne jumps every time), then use the tips of you fingers to press the biscuit into a flat circle. Add some pizza or pasta sauce, ham, thawed frozen broccoli florets and cheese to the middle of the biscuit round.

Fold one side over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork. Brush on some egg wash so the tops become shiny and golden brown in the oven. Then bake in the oven until puffed and golden brown. Easy, right? Make sure you serve them with a side of extra sauce!

    Hi!! These look great!! I was wondering if they can be frozen? I was hoping that I would be able make a bunch of them and then just pop them in the microwave for a quick snack!

      Hi Deborah, You could freeze these once cooked, my only concern is that they might become soggy in the microwave. They would still taste great, though! Let us know how they work out.
