Growing up I remember loving when my mom would buy the frozen hot pockets. They were a great after school or practice snack. They were also easy for us kids to just pop in the microwave and heat them up to eat. My mom loved them as much as we loved them I am sure. I had seen an ad for hot pockets in a magazine and it reminded me of this memory of them. I have never bought them since becoming a mom myself, but I am sure my kids would love them. Instead of buying them I decided that I could for sure just make them. They turned out great. I do suggest using a cheese that is not too sharp because it will melt faster and better in the hot pocket. Enjoy!
- 3 C Flour
- 1/4 C milk
- 1/4 C Sugar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 1/2 T Yeast
- 1 C Warm Water
- Small sliced pieces of ham
- small sliced pieces of cheddar cheese or shredded cheese
Dissolve the yeast, sugar and salt in your mixer. Once that is dissolved add the flour and milk. Mix together well them remove from mixer. Knead and add more flour if needed, for a few minutes, and separate into 1/4 size balls. Roll out the balls flat with a rolling pin. Place on greased cookie sheet. On one side of the dough place your cheese and ham. Put as much as you desire but not too much because you want it to fold over. Them fold the other side over and pinch the sides together. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
***Tip: These are a great freezer meal. Once you have cook them let them cool completely. Place them in a tight seal container and freeze for up to 2 months. Just warm them up in the microwave for a few minutes when ready to eat them.
