Homemade Hot Pockets
1 tablespoon yeast 1 tablespoon sugar 1 cup warm water 2 tablespoons oil 1 teaspoon salt 2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups 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 oil, salt, and
flour. Knead 5 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes.
Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll and pat each piece into a circle
(about 6-inches across or so). Top half of each circle with filling
of choice, keeping back from edges so it will seal well. Fold the
other 1/2 of circle over the filling and pinch sides together or seal
with a fork. Poke a couple steam vents and bake for 20 minutes at
For pizza pockets, fill this with a little pizza sauce, then
mushrooms, pepperoni, cheese, etc. Also, try with cream soup, chopped
cooked chicken and steamed broccoli and some shredded cheese. Use
your leftovers and imagination to create something special!
