I don't know about you, but I love Hot Pockets. Don't judge.
However, they can get pretty pricey. I mean, a box of two pockets costs anywhere from $2.50 to $4, right?
So I decided to see about making them myself.
Here's how I did it:
Simply Homemade Pizza Pockets
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 pound ground beef
2 Tbsp diced onions
1 Tbls minced garlic
Salt & pepper
1/2 cup mozzerella cheese
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for a few minutes until they are just soft. Add garlic and mix. Crumble ground beef into the skillet, add salt and pepper to your liking. Cook thoroughly, drain and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce and cheese and mix well.
Spread crescent dough rectangles on a cookie sheet, pressing seems together. Spoon about 2 tbsp meat mixture onto dough and fold two opposite sides, then bring up the other two sides to form a pouch.
Now, I actually made these two different sizes. The smaller ones, using just a triangle of the dough, worked well for my munchkins.
Just roll them up like you would a regular crescent roll and pinch the sides closed.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.
They were really good, and the kids of course loved them. Add a little ranch or even marinara for dipping and you will have happy campers all around!
