  • 1 recipe or package of pie dough I used my partial wheat recipe in my photos
  • 2 cups ham, sliced or cut in chunks. I used a ham steak I cut down. You can also use deli sliced ham.
  • 1-2 cups grated cheese I used a cheddar as that is what my son loves.
  • mustard This is optional. I used a plain yellow mustard, but prefer stoneground
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. This step isn't necessary, but it makes clean up such a breeze.
    Mix egg and milk in small bowl, set aside. This will be your egg wash.
    Roll pie dough to about ⅛ inch thick, fairly thin. I like to roll it into a square or rectangle. It makes cutting it into squares so much easier.
    Now, cut into 4 inch squares. You can also cut it into circles if you prefer or any other shape.
    Layer the ham, cheese and mustard on the center of one half the square. The other half will be folded over for the top.
    Now, brush the edges of the square all the way around with egg wash. Fold and crimp closed with your fingers or fork.
    Move to baking sheets. Complete with the rest of the squares. You will want to move fairly quickly, as you don't want the dough to warm up too much.
    Brush the tops with egg wash.
    Place in oven and bake until tops are a golden brown and the pie dough is light and flaky.
    These are great served right away or even cooled.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
