Not working for Nestles’, the company that makes Hot Pockets, their recipe was unavailable; therefore, I opted to use an old tried and true bread machine dough.
- 1 ½-Cups warm water (80 degrees F)
- 2 Tablespoons canola or olive oil
- 1 or 2 Tablespoons vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1-teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons dry milk
- 4 ½-Cups all-purpose flour
- 2-Teaspoon active dry yeast
Place all the ingredients in your bread machine and use the dough setting. It will take 120 minutes to mix and rise. (If you do not have a bread machine, use a big bowl. Stir in all ingredients set in a warm place to rise and double in size. Punch down and let rise again.)
- Pinch off a golf ball sized piece of dough.
- Roll the dough in your hand to smooth.
- Using a plastic bag or plastic wrap, spread the dough into a thin rectangle shape.
- Top with your favorite filling. Place the filling in the center of the dough.
- Fold the dough over, covering the filling. Fold the other side. Push down on the seam to seal.
- Using a fork seal the ends.
- Put on a greased baking dish and brush the top with olive oil.
- Place in a pre-heated 375-degree oven and bake approximately 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Baking time will vary with the thickness of your Hot Pocket.
- The dough will rise. In order to get a decent amount of filling verses bread, spread the dough thin.
