Bacon Cheeseburger Pockets | Game Day Recipe

bacon cheeseburger pockets

My children and family love the commercial “pocket sandwiches”, but I am always looking for healthier alternatives. I made these as bacon cheeseburger pockets, but you can always customize them with your favorite fillings. Maybe some ham & swiss? Chopped up meatballs, a nice homemade pizza sauce recipe and cheese? Get creative with this recipe and your favorite fillings!

This is also a great recipe for the freezer. Simply assemble and cook them. Once they are cooled, stick them in freezer bags and in the freezer. To reheat, you can either microwave them for a minute or stick them in the oven on 350 degrees (thaw them first) until they are heated completely. I actually like to make them and put them in bags of 3 in the freezer.  That way, my husband can just grab a bag on his way to work and pop them in the microwave at work (he keeps ketchup packets in his desk!)

This would be a great recipe for either dinner or as an appetizer for any party (including your Super Bowl party). Just put them out with some bowls of ketchup and mustard for dipping and you will have a fabulous “guy snack”!

Making these bacon cheeseburger pockets is easy.  You will need:
