This is a recipe that I absolutely LOVE and make all...the...time! I adore all things British, and I've been on a serious Henry VIII kick for the past couple years. I started reading all I could about not only Henry, but monarchs before and after him, which then had me planning a vacation to England so I could see all these wonderful Castles and battlefields that I'd been reading about. Anyway, Brits back in the day (and even today) would put all kinds of things in bread making them into pockets, so this is where I got the idea to search for this recipe. It is so easy, and Jesse and I just love it (I think Heath tolerates it). The recipe below calls for biscuits to be used...I tried that the first couple times I made this, then I switched to crescent rolls. I now use those every time (there are 4 rectangles in each roll, use one rectangle of two triangles sealed together for the bottom of the pocket, place cheese and meat in a mound in the middle, then top with another rectangle and seal the edges). I just prefer the soft flakiness of the crescent roll, but you can use biscuits if you like, it's also good that way. I also bought dough press...
so my pockets would be a little neater, but that's absolutely NOT necessary for these. This is a great recipe for kids since they can just pick up their pockets and eat, and they cook up VERY fast. You can do so much with this too, like add your favorite spices or maybe if you want to throw some veggies in there. Use all different types of cheese...whatever you want!

1/2 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
5 slices process American cheese
Heat oven to 375. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and cool. Place two biscuits over-lapping on a floured surface; roll out into a 5-in. oval. Place 3 tablespoons meat mixture on one side. Fold a cheese slice to fit over meat mixture. Fold dough over filling; press edges with a fork to seal. Repeat with remaining biscuits, meat mixture and cheese. Place on a greased baking sheet. Prick tops with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
