Easy Homemade Ham, Turkey and Cheese Pockets

Homemade ham and cheese pockets are insanely easy tome! They’re a comfort food that should always be in your fridge, freezer or dining room table! Enjoy!

It’s been almost 18 years since I married my best friend. and I can still remember the first morning on our honeymoon.

I opened my eyes and thought, “Wow..I’m SO hungry!”

Then it hit me.

For the rest of my life, I would be responsible for my breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And that was not a happy thought!

That’s why I’m thrilled that Carl Buddig and Company is sponsoring this post and honoring mealmakers this month!

Because the person who was the main meal maker in my life, for over 18 years, definitely deserves a pat on the back.

Thanks mom for all the yummy meals! Your meatloaf and mashed potatoes are the best!

Ham, turkey and cheese pockets are a super easy snack or meal that families can keeping the freezer or fridge! We love this homemade version of some convenient foods we enjoyed as kids! #homemadepockets #savorytarts #easyrecipes #hamandcheese #hamandturkey #hamturkeyandcheese #hamsandwich #hotpocket #hamandcheeseturnover #hamandcheesepastry #puffedpastry #recipeswithpuffedpastry #hamandcheesesnack

When I was a kid and a teen, I never once worried if there would be lunch or dinner that day.

My mom kept our pantry, fridge and freezer stocked with our favorite foods — maybe even too full!

She never wanted my two brothers and I to be hungry.

She wanted us to concentrate to on just being kids…not worrying about what was for dinner.

Even when she’d come home too late to make dinner, she would make sure that there was something we could grab, heat up and enjoy a hearty, yummy meal.

But, I had to make sure my bothers didn’t grab all the good stuff! They had quite the appetite!

And that special meal maker — my mom — is who inspired me to offer my family super, simple recipes that would be ready in minutes!

I don’t want my kids worrying about dinner either! Childhood is filled with too many other fun memories — like making pizza quesadillas or these homemade pockets!
