Semi-Homemade Hot Pockets


What do you do with the leftover meat, potatoes and veggies? You enclose all those yummy leftovers in dough, bake them and then enjoy them for lunch or a snack. You can use any homemade dough, or if you want to go super-easy, you can buy Rhodes White Dinner Rolls in the freezer section of your local grocery store. The bag I bought had 36 in them. You want the little balls of dough, not the ones that are ready to bake. Put them on a pan for 3-5 hours, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled. I use two of them, one on top and one on the bottom. Just flatten one with your hand and put your food in the middle leaving a clean edge around the dough. Next, put another one on top and seal the edges by folding, crimping, making cute designs, whatever you want. Next bake @350 for about 15 minutes or until golden. You can brush with an egg white first to make it look nice and shiny or afterwards with butter, or nothing at all. Once cool they can be packaged for the freezer and just microwave or throw into the oven. I’ve used leftover Asian BBQ, pot roast, and rotisserie chicken. Heck, throw in cheese if you have kids and they’re picky. They are a great item to pack as they don’t make a mess. The best part is that you get to decide what to put in them. Enjoy  🙂
