    Barb Gertz's Note:

    These make a nice lunch or snack. If you have leftover fresh broccoli, chop enough to make 2 cups and use instead of frozen broccoli in this recipe.

      These are good! I used the dough for Laudee's Wowlers! (Runzas), and divided the dough into 12 portions. I was afraid I couldn't get the pockets closed well enough. A little of the filling did leak, but not so much. I sauted 2 small red bell peppers with the garlic, instead of using jarred pimiento. Didn't change anything else. I'm looking forward to freezing some and having them for future lunches. I used 2 cups of cooked fresh broccoli, which I cooked first. I will want to make sure to salt to taste next time. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

      I have been making this recipe for the last year. I found it in a free recipe card that I got in the mail. It is excellent. We make it at least once a month. My two young children love it and does my husband. Its a great, yummy way to get your kids to eat broccoli! Love it, Love it, Love it!
