Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 4 slices (3/4 oz each) sweet deli ham
  • 4 slices (3/4 oz each) deli roast pork
  • 2 slices (3/4 oz each) Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 4 dill pickle slices, cut in quarters

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, mix butter, garlic and oregano.
  • 2
    In another small bowl, mix mustard and mayonnaise.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet; separate into 4 rectangles (2 triangles each). Press each rectangle to form 6x4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
  • 4
    Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard mixture on half of each rectangle to within 1 inch of edge. Top each with 1 slice ham, 1 slice roast pork, 1 piece cheese (1/2 slice) and 4 pickle quarters, folding ham and pork as needed to fit inside pocket.
  • 5
    Fold dough from top over filling; firmly press edges with fork to seal. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape. Using pastry brush, brush top of each pocket with butter mixture.
  • 6
    Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Unsauced pulled pork or carnitas work well in place of the deli roast pork slices. You will need 1/3 cup pulled pork for this recipe.
  • tip 2
    This recipe can also be made with 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet. Unroll dough; cut lengthwise into 2 long rectangles, then cut crosswise to create 4 rectangles.
  • tip 3
    Feel free to substitute whatever other deli meats you may have on hand.
