Hot Pockets (Homemade)


OK a confession, sometime I miss the days when I could pull something out of the freeze, pop it the microwave, and Voila! 2 min. later lunch, but that is not the life of a homesteader. Now that I have chosen to live this life I can't cheat :), but I thought there must be away to have both right? Quick lunch and homemade from scratch. I searched the internet and found tons of recipes for Hot Pockets! I read a lot of them and found they were all pretty basic. Joey wanted to help so we got started. I made pizza dough in my bread maker that was easy. Then we got out our supplies pizza sauce that I canned from my garden, cheese, and peperoni. We got started and it could not of been easier. It was also a lot of fun.

I made litttle balls with my dough, rolled out the dough, and then Joey added sauce.


Fold and press with fork! Place on greased cookie sheet and bake @ 400 degrees for 10-15. You want to under cook so you can warm it up in the oven for another 10 min before serving.
Let Hot Pockets cool to room tempetrue and then place in a freezer bag. How easy is that even a 4 year old can do it :). The best of both world fresh made from scratch and convenient!
This mess being the only draw back :) Cooking with a 4 year old a joyful mess :)
What a big helper!
