8 Bento #127 - Steak & Ham Pocket

Wednesday, October 27, 2010


I made these little melty pastry pockets out of some leftover steak and ham, which I sauteed in a little butter, Italian herbs and a pinch of garlic powder.  Then I encased spoonfuls of the meat in some refrigerated dough rectangles along with some shredded cheese and baked for about 11 minutes.  Ella declared them to be delicious (she called them "pants pockets"!), and the rest we have here in her bento, along with a fresh batch of basil pesto, which is happily pine nut-less this time.  I used walnuts.  I also ensured that there were plenty of celery sticks.  A few days ago she complained that she only had four.

The "pants pockets" look delicious!
What is the "refrigerated dough", is it in the refrigerated section or frozen section at the grocery store? What brand is it? Thanks!

Jenn, you can use any kind of refrigerated dough you like, from crescent rolls in a can to pizza dough from the bakery section. Anything you like! Just roll thin (if it needs rolling) and follow the package baking directions.

Emily,
Thanks for clarifying for me. Have not really worked with refrigerated dough before (crescent or pizza) so was totally clueless. I was thinking this was like refrigerated pie crust (which I have never used either). So glad I asked!
