Beef and Mashed Potato Crescent Pockets

Ingredients:

*Note. The amount of ingredients will vary depending upon how many "pockets" you want to make. I have listed the ingredients for making 4 pockets from 1 package of Crescent rolls. You can double or adjust to your needs*

--1lb.  ground beef, browned, seasoned to preference and drained.
--mashed potatoes. Quantity will vary depending on how many pockets you want to make. Leftover potatoes work great
-- 1 package of crescent rolls. 
--grated cheese of choice (optional... I did not use it.)

Directions:

--Preheat oven to 375
--Brown, season and drain your ground beef
--prepare (or reheat your leftover) mashed potatoes
--unroll the crescent rolls into 4 rectangles 
--add a scoop of beef to one side of a CR rectangle and then top with a scoop of mashed potatoes. 
--Don't over fill the pocket!
--bring the other side of the CR rectangle over the top of the filling and pinch all the edges to seal them.
--I brushed a bit of egg white wash on top of and around the edges of each pocket as a sort of glaze and added seal to help keep all the filling inside.
--Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top. Let sit for 2-3 minutes before serving.
