Ham Egg and Cheese Pockets — Damn Delicious

Ham Egg and Cheese Pockets

Homemade copycat hot pockets are so easy to make! You can freeze and reheat as needed – for breakfast or late-night cravings!

I have to admit.

I lived off of Hot Pockets as a child.

And for someone who ate American food a few times a week, I remember thinking that this is as good as it gets.

A frozen pocket that goes into the microwave to magically turn into a flaky pastry with oozing cheese, scrambled eggs and ham in less than a few minutes.

Genius. Pure genius.

Well now, you can make your own version.

With extra cheese. And extra ham.

And then microwave these bad boys for your 2:31AM cravings.

Now this is as good as it gets, right?

Ham Egg and Cheese Pockets

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Homemade copycat hot pockets are so easy to make! You can freeze and reheat as needed – for breakfast or late-night cravings!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 (8-ounce) tube crescent rolls
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add eggs whisking, until they just begin to set; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes; set aside.
  3. Remove rolls from the can, separating them into 4 rectangles, 2 triangles each. Press each rectangle to form a 6×4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
  4. Top half of each rectangle with eggs, ham and cheese. Fold dough from the top over the filling, pressing the edges to seal.
  5. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 12-13 minutes.*
  6. Serve immediately.

*TO FREEZE: Cover each pocket tightly with plastic wrap. Freeze up to 1 month. To reheat, (1) microwave for 2-3 minutes, turning halfway, or (2) bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until completely cooked through and warmed.

These look really good and easy to make! thanks!

Yea, easy to make if you read the directions properly and know what you are doing. I made tiny little crescents, which was a pain, instead of making the big ones lol.

Do you think I could also make these with puff pastry? It’s my new obsession!

This looks SO GOOD!! Great idea! A few clarifications though – maybe I just can’t understand this, but the crescent rolls come in as 8 triangles, so forming them into rectangles makes 4 total. Then you “press them” as in you just stretch them out further? That’s how I’m reading it, so is that right? Then if freezing, do you bake them before freezing? Or do you freeze them raw?

Yes, that is correct – the rectangles are stretched out. You can also freeze after baking.

These look incredible! I wish we were having these for breakfast tomorrow!

I LOVE making homemade hot pockets!! I haven’t tried it with the crescent rolls, or egg either come to think of it. I usually do pizza or ham/cheese/broccoli. But this is going on the list! Thanks!

oh, this is a must cook in the next few days! thank you for sharing!please pop by my blog: https://charlieslifeandfood.wordpress.com

I can’t wait to try this!

thank you for all of these creative snack/meal ideas!

Made these last night with some leftover ham I froze from Thanksgiving. They were delicious.
My kid said keep this on the rotation. I will be doubling the recipe next time to make more than 4.

I have to figure out my egg problem though. They were set but not all the way on top. Should I put a lid on it? I’m assuming you meant after whisking until they start to set you leave them alone right? Thanks!

Use some puff pastry sheets instead, turned out crispy and delicious!

Since I am new to cooking, I have no idea how to make these. Now I do, but earlier I read the “Remove rolls from the can, separating them into 4 rectangles, 2 triangles each” and Had NO idea what it meant. I googled how to make it, images didn’t help, but this video did https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AchZe9TIGEk I thought that is what the recipe meant then I saw an image and I knew i was wrong. But the food still turned out well. just messy.

Thanks for sharing. I really liked this recipe. I usually eating ham egg in my hammock

A nice video or pictures would help us novices.

Omg, I made this recipe this morning before work with leftover Honey Baked Ham and shredded cheddar cheese! Literally nothing to clean up and I baked it while I was in the shower. So yummy!! Thank you!!

added onion and used marble jack cheese was awesome.

I do something similar with pre made biscuit dough.roll out dough to about double its size, fill with eggs, bacon, cheese, mushrooms, & spinach (we done with meatballs & cheese, philly cheese steak, tacos, sloppy Joe’s the possibilities are endless) just fill & bake as directed

That sounds delicious Lanae, thanks for sharing!
