Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Lightly stir together the tuna, onion, celery, shredded Cheddar cheese, dill, and mayonnaise until well combined.

  • Flatten the biscuit dough to about 1/4-inch thick, and place the 8 flattened biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Place about 3 tablespoons of the tuna mixture on top of each biscuit, and top each with another flattened biscuit. Pinch the edges to seal in the filling.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is hot and the pockets are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cook's Note:

Vary the pockets by using canned chicken and your favorite cheese.

This works good with crecent rolls because you can just fold them into themselves with the tuna or chicken mixture in the center, we call them Tuna or chicken Triangles :-) Read More

These are super fast to make and very filling. They are great for those nights when you don't know what to make or for a fast supper. Sometimes I add sliced black olives to the tuna. We always have leftovers and when we reheat them they are really good the second time too! Read More

My grandmother used to make these, but we always used sour cream instead of mayonnaise, and I use Mrs. Dash instead of dill weed. Excellent substitutions if you want to try them. Read More

Really simple! I used sweet relish in my husband's and he loved them. You can also add boiled eggs. They didnt take hardly anytime to make and they are really great for bagged lunches! Read More

These were quick and easy to make. I wish I could have got more filling inside but I was weary of tuna explosions. A good basic recipe. Read More

Quite good although it makes me guilty to eat 2 biscuits filled with stuff. Definitely hearty and added a few shakes of lemon pepper and a squirt of dijon mustard. Very quick to put together and a great way to use up leftover biscuits. Read More

I made this tonight. If you like tuna melts and biscuits this is a no brainer. We all liked it. I did add an extra 1T of Mayo and 1T cheese knowing that we like wetter saucier food in general. The cheese was half sharp and half Mozz. I did use the onion/celery in specified amounts and just for color I put in 1 tsp of shivered/diced red bell. Couple of Tsp of garlic powder. Some ground black pepper. Used Grand bicuits. Served with a newly developed "whatsinthepantry" recipe of 3 cans of Progresso tomato soups - 1 basil 1 Parmesan & 1 hearty tomato. Good for dipping. I will try this again and again. I want to try a flakier more layered biscuit as well as using crescent roll to form triangle pouch. Also plan to use all types of fillings. Thank you for the springboard! Read More
