Take-out Tuesday, Everything Mushroom Pockets

We ended up having an impromptu

Kentucky Derby/Mother’s Day celebration on Saturday

It had been a busy day with a leaky pipe

causing it to rain in the Master bathroom a couple of days before…

Ever grateful to my talented son and his contracting skills,

He and his crew repaired the pipe, ceiling and all the damage

I suggested we order pizza to keep things easy

but next thing I knew

he went to the store and got groceries …

He came back with fresh shrimp and the ingredients

for our long time favorite Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade Sauce

I looked through the fridge to see what was on hand

and spied a box of mushrooms and crescent roll dough…

I remembered a yummy recipe from the archives

mushroom pockets 2 thepaintedapron.com

Mushrooms with bacon, cream cheese and onion,

wrapped in crescent roll dough and baked


Cook the bacon in a skillet, then remove and drain

Add onions to drippings in pan and cook over medium

until the onions begin to caramelize, about 6-8 minutes

Toss in the minced garlic and stir


Push onions to the edge of the skillet and add mushrooms

Turn your skillet up to medium high so the mushrooms will brown

As your kitchen fills with this sweet aroma,

you will know this is going to taste amazing!


Now the fun begins!


Separate the dough into 4 rectangles and pinch edges to seal

Spread with cream cheese


Top with bacon


Then pile on mushrooms and onions


Place remaining dough rectangles on top


Pinch edges to seal

Go around the edges with a fork to crimp

and brush dough with a beaten egg


Sprinkle tops with sesame seeds, minced onion, poppy seeds


OR Everything Seasoning


I used Everything Seasoning, it’s good on everything!


We were all wishing we were at the beach and this dinner

was almost like being there

mushroom purff thepaintedapron.com

A perfect pocket of savory delights!

Lots of ways to serve this

mushroom bites thepaintedapron.com

You could cut it in half like a sandwich

and serve a half with salad or soup

mushroom squares 1 thepaintedapron.com

Cut into squares, they are great for appetizers…

Each rectangle yields 8 squares

mushroom pockets 2 thepaintedapron.com

They are delicious hot, but good at room temperature too….

If you have any leftover haha,

just keep in the fridge and reheat in the oven at 350~

  5. Those look delicious!! Now I am hungry. Good thing that mushrooms are on my list to get at the store today, adding crescent rolls.

  6. I can’t tell you how glad I am (and how envious, too!) that you have a resident contractor! Or semi-resident! What a huge relief. And those look just so delish!

  7. Those pockets look absolutely droolworthy!

  8. YUMMY! I love anything with mushrooms, I try to always keep crescent rolls or canned biscuits on hand as there is so much that we can make with them. So glad you have a talented son to help Jenna. My mercy! Not only can that be expensive but such a pain! Hope your week is wonderful to you dear lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    • Thanks Cindy, I always have cans of rolls and biscuits in my fridge, handy stuff! Having a contractor for a son is indeed handy, plus he has great connections with all kinds of other contractors so I always get special treatment!

  9. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Better than ordering pizza any day!

  13. YUM, YUM! Love your mini gurgle pot!!
    So happy to hear you have a handy son!! There is always something that needs repair, right?
