Home-made hot pockets

I guess you could do this with most any bread recipe, but I thought this one looked good. I plan to use them with a pizza filling, my barbeq beef filling, ham and cheese, or whatever else sounds good to me at the moment. I'm just excited that they freeze well :) I'm going to to try soaking the grain first for the health benefits, but I'll let you know later if it worked :)


3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 t. sea salt
1 cup melted butter
1 cup plain yogurt

Stir ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.

To form a Pocket

Roll a small ball of dough into a circle. Put a spoonful of your choice of filling in the middle. Fold the dough in half. Use a fork to pinch the edges together.

Lay Pockets on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for about one hour. Pop them off the cookie sheet and put them into a freezer bag…and back into the freezer.

Bake your Pockets

For frozen Pizza Pockets, bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. If the Pizza Pockets are thawed, bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

These sound yummy and I'm all for anything I can freeze! How did the soaking go? Do you have an updated recipe that includes soaking or do you opt not to for these?

I did try soaking them and they turn out just fine. The dough was a little harder to work with, but not bad. Very simple recipe. A lot of times I just use my normal bread dough recipe, though, because my husband prefers the sweet yeast flavor :) But these little pockets have really come in handy to have quick lunches for Mark to take to work. Even if I forget to defrost them. they usually defrost in his lunchbag just fine before he has time to eat them!
