Ham and cheese hot-pockets
15 minutes
20 minutes
35 minutes
1 can ready made croissant dough
4 slices ham
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 egg beaten (optional)
2 teaspoons fresh parsley finely chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F
Unroll the 2 pieces of croissant dough. Keep them in their rectangular shape. Pinch the diagonal precut seams together. Then separate into 4 rectangles.
With your finger put a little water on the edges of the dough to make sure they stick together once folded. Fold ham to fit on one end of dough. Top ham with a ¼ cup of cheese. Fold into a pocket and seal the edges. Make 2 small incisions on the top of each pocket so steam can release when baking.
Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Broccoli. It's food you love, hate or love to hate. While it's considered a super-food by nearly all health experts, it can get a little boring after awhile.
