Hot Pockets

Hot Pockets! You just read that in the "jingle voice" from the commercial, didn't you? Or better yet, in Jim Gaffigan's rendition of the Hot Pocket jingle! Too funny. Honestly, I must admit it's Jim Gaffigan that put hot pockets on my mind today. However, if you're reading this, and a foodchannel.com regular (one of our clients), you're probably hardly one to buy the convenient little microwavable pockets of craving curbers. Besides, that there's nothing that they can sell at the grocery store that you can't make better on your own. Concur? I knew you would! Here's what you do:


1 1/2 cups warm milkhomemade hot pockets

1 teaspoon yeast

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

4 cups all purpose flour

In a large bowl, combine sugar, yeast and milk. Let it sit for five minutes. Add salt, vegetable oil and egg. stir in flour until the dough is stiff enough to knead...Exact amount of flour may vary but add a little at a time. It should end up being about four cups. Knead dough for a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until it doubles.

Now, the fun part! You can make any "kind" or flavor of hot pockets you like. Start with the wet ingredient...it can be anything...horse radish, salad dressing, tomato sauce etc. and add it to any sliced or shredded meat and cheese if desired. The combination possibilities are endless...ham and swiss, roast beef and provolone, bacon and cheddar, or anything!

Punch down dough and divide in two. Roll each half into an approximate 8x12 rectangle. Then, using a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into six parts.

Place your hot pocket "innards"....whatever you decided to come up with...on each part then pull dough over to seal. It may look a little messy. If it bugs you, just turn it over and it'll look nice and neat.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until browned. Make sure you're watching them! Then, cool them preferably on a rack.

You can eat them immediately or store in fridge or freezer to be devoured at a later date! Enjoy!

I will have to share this with my wife.  She loves to cook and I tell her we have to make more stuff I can eat of the go or warm up at the office.
