Ham pockets 2

Ham pockets filled with chopped ham, cheese, capers, and sundried tomatoes and baked in the oven as a snack!


200g chopped ham
¾ cup grated cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons capers or 50 g sundried tomato, or both
90g Herb and Garlic cream cheese

400g thawed puff pastry
1 lightly beaten egg, you may wish to add some milk to brush the pocket before baking.


Preheat oven to 425 F and line baking tray with parchment paper.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Roll out the dough, and cut about 5” rounds.
Spoon a tablespoon of the filling into the center of each round, fold the pastry into a pocket and turn over in order for the fold to be at the bottom. Be sure to seal it properly.
Place the pockets on the tray.
Brush with the egg and bake for ±15 minutes, or until well browned and puffed.
