Homemade Hot Pockets
  • 1 ¼ cup white all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 pkg. or 4 ½ tsps. dry active yeast
  • 2 cups very warm water
  • 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Dissolve yeast in water for 10 minutes until creamy. Stir in flour, salt, sugar, and oil. Beat until smooth- If dough seems too sticky; add more flour 1 Tbsp. at a time until smooth. Let dough rest for 5 minutes. Roll out to ⅛th of an inch on a well-floured surface. You can then cut shapes with a small glass bowl or by hand with a knife.
  3. In the center of cut out, spoon the fillings of your choice- ham and Swiss, turkey and cheddar, pepperoni, cheese, and sauce, or taco meat, cheese, and salsa. (You could even fill with breakfast items for morning convenience). Fold over dough and press all around the edges with a fork. Place on a cookie sheet or pizza stone sprayed with non-stick spray. Poke several holes with a fork to allow steam to escape, ( I like to punch in letters that stand for fillings like H for Ham, that helps when I’m bagging) Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Makes approximately 8 -10 pockets, depending on size. I used a glass bowl about 4” across to cut out my shapes, and was able to make 8.
  4. Working in an assembly line fashion will help you fill your pockets quickly; cut out, fill, fold, pinch, and bake.
  5. Allow to cool, separate by type of filling, and seal in a Ziploc freezer bags. Remember to label bag with date and name of dish.
