Homemade Hot Pockets

Recipe adapted from Our Best Bites
Homemade Hot Pockets
Makes 4 Servings

8 oz. Trader Joe’s plain pizza dough; divided into 2 servings
4 oz. Oscar Meyer deli selects ham; divided into 4 servings
½ cup Kroger fat-free cheddar cheese, grated; divided into 4 15-gram servings
½ tsp olive oil; divided into 4 servings
Flour to sprinkle on pan.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Divide dough into two 4-ounce piles. Roll into two small rectangles on a cookie sheet sprinkled with flour. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle in half making 4 smaller rectangles. Leaving a margin on both sides, add ham and cheese. Fold the left side over the middle, and then the right side over that. Starting at the bottom, tightly roll the filled dough stretching it gently to make a tight seal. Repeat with the other 3. Bake for 10 minutes, then smear 1/8 tsp of olive oil on the top of each pocket, then cook for another 5 minutes. (Go HERE to see step-by-step rolling directions in photos).

Review: They were SO yummy – loved, loved them! Very doughy and fabulous! I will definitely be making these again – no doubt. She said they’re good to freeze and heat up in the microwave too – nice! Also – her pictures have her making them with her children – cute! Also, they're great for breakfast.
