My Own Version of Hot Pockets

Photobucket

The dough:

2 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons agave syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
1 Tablespoon salt

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water with the sugar. Add to it the remaining ingredients. Mix and knead for 5 minutes (Kitchenaid mixers are great for all this). Set aside while you get out the filling.

The filling:

1 package vegan meat balls
1 small jar Ragu Pizza Sauce

Divide the dough into 12 equal sized balls. On a floured surface roll them out into rectangular/oval shapes. Place three meatballs in the middle and slightly to one side. Cover with one to two tablespoons of pizza sauce. Fold over dough to cover and pinch edges together.

Cook in a 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes. Should make 12 "hot pockets", keep a couple out for your next few lunches and freeze the rest for future lunches. Take them frozen to school or work with you, let them thaw in the morning then microwave (1 or 2 minutes) at lunch for a quick hot meal :)

The dough also makes good dinner rolls, but I think its a little too heavy for loaves.

Wow, I just ate my first one that wasn't fresh from the oven today while in Salt Lake City and it was delicious! Wahoo :)
