Sunday Brunch: Homemade Hot Pockets

Homemade Hot Pockets


Servings: 6

One package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets per package); make sure to thaw overnight or 45 minutes before preparation.

1 cup cooked ham (I bought the cubed kind for use in omelets)

1 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded (sharp would be tasty too)

1 egg, beaten for egg wash (to “glue” pockets together and brush on top)

Other possible ingredient ideas:
– Eggs/sausage
– Pepperoni/Cheese/Marinara Sauce
– Turkey/Cheese

Prep Day: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. If you don’t have this paper, then spray pan with non-stick spray.

Roll out each thawed puff pastry.

Cut each sheet into 6 rectangles. You will have 12 total rectangles.

Place ham and cheese on 6 rectangles.

Brush egg wash along sides of rectangle.

Place matching rectangle on top and press together using end of fork.

Poke 2 or 3 holes in the top of each pastry.

Wrap them individually with plastic wrap before freezing and place in a freezer bag. Freeze.

Serve Day: Thaw. Brush with egg wash. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Do not want to burn mouth.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
