Turkey and Cheese Pockets
What's your Take?

Crescent rolls made with pre-made dough is one of our favorite treats to have for breakfast on weekends. Recently, I saw some recipes out there that added extras to the dough to make new dishes with them it, so I tried the most famous one: pigs in a blanket. They're perfect  for the lunchboxes, and they were a hit!

Working with the pre-made crescent roll dough is so easy that I am now trying out more recipes to make. I came up with these pockets that are similar to some pockets they sell in Venezuela where I was born and raised. Over there they usually are made with lots of ham, but I wanted to experiment using turkey and adding 2 cheeses. 

These pockets can be made easily for the lunchbox, for breakfast or for an after-school snack!

What you'll need

  • 1 8z can of crescent roll dough
  • 2 slices of Muenster cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 4 small slices of turkey deli meat
  • 4 teaspoons of cream cheese
