Sometimes I struggle to think of new & tasty lunch ideas that my son will like. He’s a pretty picky eater but he usually picks healthy foods like broccoli, carrots and chicken so that makes things easier. He loves pizza (ham & pineapple are his favorite toppings) so I’ve started making homemade pockets that taste similar to pizza pockets. These homemade pockets are a hit with my whole family! These are super easy to make and they go great with homemade fries or salad. If you’re looking for a tasty homemade fries recipe, try this Garlic Ranch Potatoes recipe.
My latest homemade pizza pocket creation are these Turkey Taco Pockets. I love taco seasoning so I knew this would be a good one to try. It’s a delicious comfort food recipe too – kind of like a mini pot pie.
Turkey Taco Pockets:
These taste great as leftovers too!
- 1 container Pillsbury Country Biscuits (there are 10 biscuits in one tube)
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 orange bell pepper, diced
- ¼ cup white onion, diced
- ½ cup shredded cheese
- 1 package taco seasoning
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- In a frying pan, cook turkey until thoroughly cooked.
- Add taco seasoning mix (according to directions on package), bell peppers and onion. Simmer (on medium heat) for 10 minutes.
- Add shredded cheese to turkey mixture and heat just until melted.
- On a large baking sheet (ungreased), flatten out 5 of the biscuits and top each with turkey mixture. You'll be able to fit about 3 tablespoons of turkey mixture on each biscuit.
- Flatten out the other 5 biscuits and use these as the tops for the ones with turkey on them. Pinch the edges of each pocket together so the filling doesn't come out while baking.
- Spoon melted butter over each of the 5 pockets and sprinkle garlic powder on the top of each.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
Now that I have my new Frigidaire Freestanding Induction Range, I can cook a lot more in a shorter amount of time. Trust me, I’ve been putting this theory to use a lot lately! I absolutely love the induction cooktop. You can bring things to a boil so quickly and spills never burn to the top of the stove.
