Lazy Mom Meals: Easy Ham & Cheese Pockets Are a Handheld Delight

Ham and cheese pocketsWho has time to make an elaborate dinner during the busy holiday season? Yet, if something's wrapped in puffed pastry it almost always looks amazing and as if it required hours of effort, doesn't it? These Ham & Cheese pockets are shockingly simple, yet absolutely delicious.


Even though they look like something straight out of a cafe or bistro, Amber of Dessert Now Dinner Later explains how easy they are to put together.

"Basically all you need is frozen puff pastry sheets, cheddar cheese slices, and ham slices," she notes. "The mustard is optional. This time we used Dijon, but you can use yellow or honey mustard as well."
