I’ve been wanting to find a way to replicate hot pockets… those pizza type pockets you can get?
So anyways, this was my just wing it attempt.
1 package crescent rolls. Unless you have a recipe for a thin bread coating you can wrap around the filling.
Ground beef … oh.. a pound maybe, probably a light pound.
Brown this in a pan with some diced onion 3/4 medium and one sweet pepper.
Seasoning… I used a taco mix… about 1.5 tbsp.
Good handful bacon bits (the real kind)
Spaghetti sauce leftovers.. enough to make it saucy but not too liquid
Let it all cook together for a bit in your fry pan.
Take your crescent rolls out of the package. DO NOT UNROLL THEM.
Divide into 8 sections that you will then roll flat into a squarish circle. Roll them fairly thin but not too thin. (yes, there is a learning curve)
Put some cheese in the middle.. I did a mix of cheddar and mozzarella
Top with meat mix.
Pull up the sides and kinda make them stick together and then put the stuck together sides down on the baking sheet.
Repeat until you have all eight sections done.
Cook in oven like you would for crescent rolls.
I liked them day one, son said “something is missing”.
Day two reheated I LOVED them, and son said (after he added a layer of cheese and splash of salt “can we make them again?”. Hubby tried them day two and said “good first attempt” but not quite what he’d want for work. He said “You need to play around with them a bit yet, but overall for a hot meat bun it wasn’t half bad”. Part of my goal is to make something he wouldn’t mind taking along to work with him…. so I’ll keep fiddling.
IF you have suggestions please make them.
