Happiness is ham and cheese wrapped up in flaky puff pastry. If you are looking for an easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner – this is it. I took hot pockets to a whole new level and stuffed them with delicious ham, pepper jack cheese, a touch of whole grain mustard, and crumbled sage.
You can fill these with any cheese of your choice, but I love a little kick from the pepper jack. I used fresh sage from my kitchen and dried it in the oven.
I like the edges to be nice and golden brown.
- 1 box of puff pastry (includes 2 sheets)
- ½ cup diced ham
- ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
- 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
- a handful of fresh sage leaves
- melted butter
- additional shredded pepper jack
- Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
- Cut each sheet of puff pastry into four even pieces.
- Mix ham, cheese, and mustard.
- Place one heaping tablespoon of the ham mixture in the center of each pastry. Fold over and press down the edges with a fork. Poke holes in the center of each pastry.
- Place each hot pocket on a baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle additional cheese on top. Add sage leaves to the baking sheet as well.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Crumble the dried sage leaves on top of the hot pockets and serve.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Just looking at these photos reminds me that I need to make them again, ASAP.
Give them a try and let me know what you think!
