    Nursebarb's Note:

    Home Made Hot Pockets! I used to make these for my (now grown) boys - they were great for after school snacks and school lunches. I now make them for my stepdaughter, who loves them just as much. These freeze great! My boys used to come home from school or sports activities and get them right from the freezer and pop them in the microwave for snacks. (They still do..when they can get them!) I frequently double the recipe - I can never seem to have enough on hand. Please note there is no measurement for the ham - use about 1/4 cup ham and one piece of sliced cheese, chopped per pocket. Really, any meat &/or cheese will work - mix and match to your taste!!!

      These are really good. I used whole wheat bread dough that I made in my bread maker. I filled them with ham and cheese, brushed them with egg wash and sprinkled with Penzey's Sandwich Sprinkles before baking. Yum! These will be great in our lunches tomorrow. (If there are any left.) Thank you for a great recipe/idea.

      I loved this idea. I used crescent rolls instead, but the same result. You can also try adding pizza sauce, pepperoni, olives, and spinach. Thanks for helping me create a new lunch time favorite for my kids.
