Halloween Pocket Sandwiches

I purchased some frozen bread dough as a back-up on one of my other experiments, but it ended up coming out alright - so I had these sitting in the freezer, collecting crystals.

You just need to defrost this bag and even though the pieces are sectioned off for you already - feel free to use more or less, depending on your sandwich.

Once its nice and soft, stretch it out to a thin square and then begin pressing into the mold. Don't worry about filling in every crevice - as it bakes it will shape perfectly.  Pinch away the excess as necessary.  If you are happy with it, then take some of your deli meat (and if you are using cheese) and roll it up to fit in the center.  For this, I used deli ham and white cheddar - rolling up together. 

Take another piece of the bread dough - again making a thin square and place over the mold.

 Finally, pinch everything in sealing it up the best that you can.  Bake at 350, for about 12 min. I noticed that if I left a little escape hole when pinching it together, some of the oils would drip down in the mold making the shape nice and brown.  Therefore, you may consider brushing the inside of the shape with a little butter.

Ta-da! The end result. 

The fun thing about this is that you don't have to fill them with anything!  You could actually take the dough and push in whole to make some fun themed dinner rolls!  But, the list is endless for fillings - you could do pizza sauce and cheese, any dessert pie filling, cookie dough - maybe?  Oh, I'm just going to get myself into trouble with these.  Guess I will need all of the seasonal baking pans!

So if you have other ideas on what to do with these, please leave a comment! Don't be shy! We are all here to learn, right?
