Ham and Cheese Hot Pockets

"I am guessing on quantities because I eyeball this one! From OAMC "Ham Plan". The yield varies based on your proportions."

Ready In:




  • Prepare pizza dough. Use a turnover maker or just roll out the dough into squares, fill each with a little ham and cheese and another desired vegetable, don't overfill, as they will leak!
  • Seal edges with water, bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet (those air bake ones are great for this!).
  • Eat, or freeze, then nuke 'em for convenience! Look in the freezer section of the grocery store for more hot pockets to clone at home!

  1. This is a great idea. I love making hot pockets for traveling, great airplane food. This recipe came out dry for me. Next time I think I will use either a cream of mushroom soup or mix in just a bit of the drippings/gelatin leftover from cooking my honey glazed ham. I doubled my pizza dough recipe and then cut it into 16 pieces. If I am not careful, I end up with too much bread and not enough toppings. I usually cut my pizzas into 8 slices so I figured that I should have the same bread/topping ratio. I also used an ice cream scoop to get the right amount of filling. For this recipe, 2 pizza doughs seemed the right amount for the filling. I rolled the pockets up like a burrito--pull edges to center, fold ends over. then put all the seams on the bottom for cooking that way they don't burst open.
  2. Excellent idea, although the recipe is a little fuzzy for beginning cooks. I tried to keep track of how much I used for future chefs. :) I did a double batch, intending to serve 6, have some left for lunches, and some left for freezing. That worked out. I made up a double batch of Recipe #35805 for the dough (filling my 2 lb machine!), which I divided into 12 balls. I then steamed about 3 cups of fresh chopped broccoli and added it to a pound of cubed ham steak and 2 cups of shredded cheese. I rolled out each dough ball and put about half a cup of the mixture on each, then folded and half and crimped with a fork. I wasn't sure what they were going to taste like without any sauce in them, but they surprised me by tasting very similar to the commercial ones, but better! :)
