I came up with this one when looking for a different way to use leftover turkey, that the whole family could enjoy. They became an instant hit. We make them in larger batches and it's easy to adjust the amounts to taste. Some prefer more cheese or you could use different varieties.

How To Make turkey broccoli cheese pockets
Test Kitchen Tips
There is really enough filling to use 3 cans of crescent roll dough.
1Amounts are estimated and you can easily adjust for basically any number of pockets. Mix everything together in a large bowl.
2For each pocket, you need two roll sections. You can also simply use one triangle for the bottom and one for the top. The rectangles are a little easier to seal when done, but both ways work well. For the rectangles, be sure to press the long edge firmly, to form one large piece.
3Place 2-3 large spoonfuls of filling onto the dough.
4Fold over for rectangles or place on top for triangles. Seal edges by pinching together firmly.
5Place on a cookie sheet.
6Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Cool slightly and enjoy!!
