Air Fryer Ham and Egg Pockets are a breeze to make for breakfast. Wrapped in buttery crescent dough, they are filled with egg, ham, and cheese and only take 7 to 10 minutes in the air fryer.
I love using crescent dough for recipes and almost always have a tube of crescent dough in my refrigerator. Some of my favorite recipes using crescent dough are Crescent Lasagna, Crescent Coffee Cake, Cinnamon Roll Crescents, and Sausage and Crescent Roll Casserole.
How To Make Air Fryer Ham and Egg Pockets
- Scramble some eggs. I add a little milk, salt and pepper, and scramble in some butter. But you can use your preferred method for scrambling eggs. Undercook them slightly since they will cook more in the air fryer. Stir in the ham and green onion.
- Preheat the air fryer. Not totally necessary with all air fryers, but I typically do it.
- Unroll the crescent dough and separate into 4 rectangles. Press on the perforations to seal them. Place filling on the top half of piece of crescent dough and top with cheese. Make sure you do not use too much filling or you will not be able to seal the edges of the crescent dough very well. Fold the dough up and over the filling and pinch to seal around the edges.
- Air fry for 7 to 10 minutes. They are done when the crescent dough is golden brown.
Can They Be Made In The Oven?
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make these Ham and Egg Pockets in the oven. Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
You can use cooked, crumbled bacon or sausage instead of ham. Use any kind of cheese you like. Add sauteed mushrooms or onions.
Refrigerated biscuit dough can be used instead of crescent dough. Roll each biscuit out into a 5 to 6-inch circle.
I made these in my new Cosori Pro II Air Fryer. I have had 4 air fryers and it is my favorite one. It’s not too noisy and I love the square-shaped basket.
Cooking time varies between air fryers so use the cooking time as an estimate and check frequently.
