Cheesy & Meaty Foldovers

Kids (and adults) are always looking for snacks and parents should want to keep them as healthy and nutritious as possible. The products that you buy in the store are filled with chemicals and preservatives. This recipe, although not totally healthy is a better alternative for your body than a processed and pre-packaged food.
1 container Pillsburry Croissant (or you can use the croissant reipe below if you are feeling like a baker man
1 8oz package or your favorite cheese
8 oz of your favorite type of meat (ham, bacon, chicken, roast beef, etc.)
each foldover will need 2 croissants if using the Prepackaged kind. If making your own croissant dough, each foldover will need to be about 5" square.
Pre-heat oven to 350 lay out your dough squares on you prep counter.
In the center, place 1 oz of cheese (slice, cube, crumbles). on top of the cheese, lay your choice of meat. Be sure that the meat or cheese are not over flowing the edge of the dough.
Fold the four corners into the center and overlap to create a pocket for the meat and cheese.
Place your completed foldovers onto a greased baking sheet and place in oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the dough has reached a golden brown color. this will ensure that the cheese has melted.
Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes
Serve and ENJOY!
