Making Your Own At Home Is Easy
I do not know too many people that do not like a good hot pocket sandwich, but if your family is as frugal as ours, you probably do not by them very often because of the expense. What if you could make your Hot Pockets at home for a fraction of the price and use leftovers to fill them, making them a great way to stretch your food dollars even more?
Hot pockets are very simple to make, and can be made in a variety of flavors used for any meal of the day, a dessert or a mid day snack. The best thing about hot pockets is that you can let your imagination run away with you when it comes to fillings, and you should never need to run to the store to fill these as you will almost always have something good to put in them lying around your kitchen.
Hot Pocket Dough
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 ¾ – 3 ¼ cup flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar. Let it set for a few minutes until foamy (if you’re using fast-rise yeast, you can just add the yeast with the flour and go on). Then stir in the oil, salt and flour. Knead 5 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll/pat each piece into a circle ( maybe about 6″ across or so)
Top half with filling of choice, keeping back from edges from edges so it will seal well. Fold the other ½ of the circle over the filling and pinch sides together or seal with a fork. Poke a couple steam vents and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees
This is where it gets really fun, you can choose one of my fillings below or you can make your own. Keep in mind when you make your own that you will need monster energy clothing china some sort of liquid or semi-liquid to keep your filling from drying out. This can be in the form of a processed cheese, marinara sauce, fettuccini sauce or a bit of oil or other type of fat.
Our favorite fillings are-
Pizza sauce with veggies, pepperoni, ham and mozzarella cheese
Condensed cream soups with veggies and meat
Ham and cheese
Sloppy Joe Mix
Taco meat, olives, and onions with cheese over top
You can make a breakfast filling with scrambled eggs, cheese and ham or you can put pie fillings in these and top them with sugar and cinnamon for a unique and frugal dessert.
