Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. In large bowl, mix the mashed potatoes and hot water. Add cream cheese; beat until blended. Stir in the ham, onions, bacon and Cheddar cheese.
  2. Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Slightly stretch corners of short side of each triangle to make longer. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon 1/3 cup potato mixture on center of each triangle. Bring corners to center over filling, overlapping ends; press gently to seal.
  3. Mix butter and pepper sauce; brush over tops. Bake at 375 degrees F 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Very tasty pockets! I ended up with more filling than crescents, so perhaps load with a bit more than 1/3 cup.


Amazing! I used my own crumbled bacon and yellow onion instead of green onion


My family enjoyed these. They were easy to make. I did leave out the ham as a personal preference. I also used leftover mashed potatoes, because that's what I had on hand. They would make a good appetizer for the holidays. I will definitely be making these again in the future.
