What can I say about this recipe? It was fabulous!!! It was easy to throw together in the Kitchenaid stand mixer while I was prepping everything else. I made 8 large pockets (baked for about 30 minutes) and used the recipe as listed except that I replaced half of the beef (extra lean) with sliced ham, cut into strips and half the sauce. I used 2 packets of quick rise yeast, which equalled 4.5 tsp and it was just right. My youngest son didn't love the filling - it was simply too healthy for him! LOL! We were discussing the possibilities of fillings and my husband and I thought that a beef, onion, mushroom and cheese filling would be good. My boys would love ham, pineapple and cheese. We will be making these again for sure!!! Made for PRMR tag. Thanks Deantini! :)
Fun to make and fun to eat! What more can I say! I used pasta sauce instead of pizza or chopped tomatoes but other wise may as directed. A bit healthier than the hot pockets you buy. Thanks for sharing!
Wonderful! We miss having hot pockets here in South Africa and this was close! Thanks for the recipe! Made for PRMR tag.
Yes, I liked the bread texture, i followed the recipe carefully and it worked perfectly. I wasn't sure how big a dessert plate might be, so I sort of guessed at how big I would like the finished product to be!! DH would have liked a bit more filling, maybe leaving out the cheese and adding more meat filling. I did bulk it out with vegetables, a little, adding a grated zucchini, and a finely diced sweet potato, I was thinking vaguely along the lines of a Cornish Pasty. I also added the tomatoes directly to the meat sauce and let it all cook down together. I needed more than one egg, in the end I used two, plus some milk, because I painted the pies before baking them. I considered these very successful, and have sent half of them off with my college-bound daughters, DH keeping the other half for his lunches! He had one today, with a salad and some gravy. Thank you, Deantini, very nice recipe!!! Made for PRMR tag game.
Liked the texture of the bread. Instead of making them small, I divided it into 8 portions to make larger ones. The baking time needed to be increased, so they baked 30 min. For my vegetarian son I made a vegetable only filling and used garlic sausage/peppers/onion mixture for the others. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
Just noticed my review for these wonderful pizza pockets did not post (user error I'm sure:)). Everyone in my family ate and enjoyed these, and that never happens. They are a bit of work but well worth it. I kept some leftovers in the fridge and froze the rest. This would be a great recipe to double for OAMC. I suspect 4 tablespoons yeast is a typo, I used 4 teaspoons. Also I didn't read the recipe carefully and used all of the flour in the dough rather than holding some back for rolling, which luckily worked just fine. I didn't add any extra flour and was able to roll out the circles with no problem. Very finely chopped the onion so the kids wouldn't balk and omitted the bell pepper cause I was out, used one pound of ground beef, extra cheese, and Muir Glen crushed tomatoes with basil. Obviously you could add anything to these pockets. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
