Yesterday I tried my hand at hot pockets. They were very good but next time I will add more things inside. First you need to start off with a good bread recipe.
2 tsp Yeast
1 cup warm water
2 tbl Butter
1 cup milk
2 tbl sugar
1 tbl salt
6 cups flour
Throw all of this into a bread machine and set it on your dough setting. If you dont have a bread machine but do have a kitchen aid. First activate your yeast by placing the yeast, water and sugar in a bowl for 15 minutes until it becomes frothy and slowly add the rest of the ingredients starting with the wet and ending with the dry. You will need to mix it for about 10 minutes for the amount of time that it needs to be kneaded..or you can do it will good old fashion muscle. 🙂
Once your dough is nice and smooth. Start tearing medium sized balls off. Flatten these out like you would a 6 inch pizza or personal pizza. And add what you would like on the inside. I chose cheddar and Honey ham. I would add more than this next time though as there was more dough than goodies.
When everything that you want is in there push the inside down and pull up the sides in order to form the ball around the filling, then do a little twist so that when you flip it over it wont run out when it is being cooked.
Place this on a pan lined with foil twist side down. I then melted butter and added about a teaspoon and a half of garlic salt and brushed the tops of all of the hot pockets. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown on top and serve immediately.
We served them with mustard because they are like little sandwiches. As always enjoy.
