Hot Pockets

Have you had Hot Pockets the frozen pocket sandwiches you heat in the microwave. Well here's a super easy homemade version I'm sure you'll love too.

Ingredients needed:
2 oz (1/4 of 8-oz pkg) cream cheese, solftened
1 Tbsp. mayo or Miracle Whip (I have used ranch salad dressing)
1 tsp. mustard 
4 slices of deli meat (or about a cup of diced); for today's I used sliced ham
1/4 cup shredded cheese; for today's I used cheddar
1 can refrigerated biscuits (I use the store/generic brand of the "Grands" biscuits)

Follow directions on the biscuit container for oven temperature and baking time.

Dice the meat,

add to the softened cream cheese,

here's Audrey shredding the block of cheddar,
and add to the ham & cream cheese mixture.

Now add the rest of the ingredients 
(except for the biscuits) to the mixture, and mix well.

Press biscuits into 4" circles,  

place spoonful of mixture to one side of the pressed biscuit,

fold biscuit over and press the seams closed. 

Place into preheated oven and bake until golden brown.

Then enjoy!

The possibilities are endless...

  • ham & swiss 
  • turkey & american cheese
  • roast beef & provolone
  • a hamburger pocket: ground beef & american 
  • a pizza pocket: filled with your favorite pizza toppings
  • how about a breakfast pocket: scrambled egg, sausage or bacon 
  • or a vegetarian pocket with all your favorite veggies

Just replace the meat & shredded cheese with your favorite choices. You can also change the condiments (the mayo & mustard) with pizza sauce, salad dressing, etc.
