Homemade Hot Pockets

Breakfast Hot Pockets

*Note: The bread recipe below uses a bread-maker (awesome investment), however you can used whatever dough you prefer.

Honey Wheat Bread

1.25 cup of water
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp margarine or butter, softened
1.5 cups Whole Wheat flour
1.5 cups bread machine flour
1.5 tsp salt
2 tsp regular active dry yeast OR
1.75 tsp bread machine or quick-acting active dry yeast

Set the bread-maker on *DOUGH* setting. Once this is done, take the dough ball and place it on a floured surface. Make fist sized balls of dough and roll them out into rectangles. Fill with your favorite breakfast omelette. Fold into a burrito/hot pocket shape. Make sure it's sealed so all the goodness stays inside. The complete recipe for the filling for the one shown in the picture has:

1 package cut up sausage links
6 eggs
a bit of milk
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 orange pepper
3 green onion stalks
salt and pepper to taste

Place in oven (preheated to 400 degrees) for about 20-25 minutes (until golden brown). Cool on wire rack. Makes 6-8 hot pockets (depending on the sizes). They freeze splendidly. Once frozen, pop in microwave for 1.5-2 minutes. 

So much better than store bought. BTW - The hot pocket above is pictured on a tiny plate - It's actually about the size of my fist.

Enjoy ^_^

Thank you! I wish I had a bread maker but I don't have the room. SO I'm the bread maker. I'm cutting and pasting this one. Thanks for sharing.

Yum! That looks delicious. I'll have to remember this one. I recently made hot pockets but not with breakfast ingredients - yum yum yum!
