Cheese Pockets

This is one of my all time favorite recipes to use for potlucks and other gatherings. We have never gone home without the pan being empty. They’re super simple, super quick, and super yummy. Whenever I took this to company potlucks, I learned that the second time around, I needed to bring two pans. (Please note, the photo shows them all ‘perfect like” NEVER have I had the crust pop up like that, and the filling is way thicker than that.)

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Unroll 1 of the cans of crescent dough. Press onto bottom of greased 13×9-inch baking pan to form crust, firmly pressing seams together to seal.
