Croque Monsieur Pockets

I found this recipe in my Food Network magazine and have to say that it's the best thing I've eaten in a long time. Croque Monsieur is just fancy French for a ham and cheese sandwich. The flavor of this sandwich is fantastic and I could honestly eat these every day. So yummy. Try it now!

Croque Monsieur Pockets
Makes 4 pockets
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup deli-sliced ham, chopped {I used Land O'Frost Bistro Favorites Black Forest Ham}
2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/8 tsp. nutmeg {optional}
Pinch of cayenne pepper
11-oz. tube refrigerated French bread dough or pizza dough
1 large egg

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Mix the cheese, ham, mustard, nutmeg and cayenne in a bowl until combined. Squeeze the mixture together with your hands to make it compact.
2. Brush a baking sheet lightly with vegetable oil. On a floured surface, roll out the dough and fill the dinner pockets by following these step-by-step instructions.
4. Place the pockets seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Beat the egg and 1 Tbsp. water in a small bowl; brush the pockets with the egg wash.
5. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
