First of all, I have a major sinus infection and it pretty much feels like my head is in a bucket of cement, so I do hope the following posts make sense as it is hard to think!
I've never had a "Hot Pocket" because as far as I know that are not vegetarian friendly. I love the idea of a little meal in a pocket of dough. I made a breakfast version, and since I used pizza dough I guess these could also be called breakfast calzones.
There is no specific recipe since you can fill these with anything you like. For my version, I sauteed onions until they were soft. I added some diced, cooked potatoes, some beaten eggs, and a handful of grated cheese. I cooked the eggs until they were just set and the cheese was melted.
I rolled out some pizza dough that I'd made a few weeks ago and frozen. I rolled the dough into a big rectangle and then cut that into three pieces. I let the egg mixture cool, and then covered one half of each piece of dough with the eggs. I folded over the uncovered piece of dough to cover the filling, and sealed the edges-basically making an envelope of dough with an egg filling. I cut a small hole in the top of each hot pocket to let the steam vent.
I put my hot pockets on a baking sheet and baked them in a preheated 350F oven for about 20 minutes, until they were browned.
Dave loved these because they were tasty, but also because they were so portable-perfect for lunches.
**After re-reading my post I think I made these sound difficult to make. Really, it is just pizza dough filled with eggs, potatoes, and cheese. Easy!
