2 large eggs
100g (about 1 1/2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese (low-fat if preferred)
120g (about 1 cup) lean ham (avoid honey-glazed or sugary varieties)
1 roll of almond flour-based or low-carb puff pastry (look for keto-friendly options at your local store)


Prepare the Filling
In a mixing bowl, whisk the two large eggs until well beaten.
Add the shredded mozzarella cheese and diced lean ham to the eggs. Mix everything well to create the filling.
Prepare the Low-Carb Puff Pastry Squares
Unroll the almond flour-based or low-carb puff pastry on a clean surface.
Cut the pastry into squares. Ensure that the squares are large enough to fold over the filling.
Assemble the Pockets
Place a teaspoon of the ham and cheese filling in the center of each low-carb puff pastry square.
Fold the pastry over the filling to create triangle or rectangle shapes, sealing the edges by pressing them together.
Preheat the Oven
Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F) to reach the desired baking temperature.
Prepare the Baking Tray
Line a baking tray with parchment paper for easy cleanup and to prevent sticking.
Brush with Egg Wash
Arrange the assembled keto ham and cheese pockets on the prepared baking tray.
Brush the tops of the pockets with a beaten egg for a nice golden finish.
Place the baking tray with the pockets in the preheated oven.
Bake at 190°C (375°F) for approximately 20 minutes or until the pockets are golden brown and puffed.
