More About This Recipe

  • On August 1st, I moved to a new neighborhood. I don’t know a soul and that can make it hard for knowing who is supposed to be in my neighbor’s yard and who is not. Lucky for me in just a few short days it’s National Night Out and that will hopefully give me the opportunity to meet and greet my neighbors. I'm fortunate that the front of my new place has a large courtyard perfect for picnicking. I plan on heading on out there with my portable picnic bites of Ham and Cheese Crescent Pockets and Turkey Cranberry Crescent Pockets to win over the new neighbors. What’s even better about these is that they can be made ahead of time and are nice and portable so you can walk around eating your dinner while you meet the peeps that make up your ‘hood. I decided to make a good ol’ ham and cheese (because you can never go wrong with that) and a version of my favorite way to make a turkey sandwich…with cream cheese and cranberry sauce. It seemed odd to me to the first time I ordered it, but after one bite I knew that this was an instant classic in my book. You can fill them with just about anything you put in a sandwich, but keep in mind that things like lettuce probably won’t work that well since they are being baked. So be creative, have fun and get out and meet your neighbors!
