When I’m not feeling good, there are a few things that make me feel better. Anything with bread usually does it. That is, as long as I don’t have a scratchy throat.
Been feeling pretty run down lately and as a pick-me-up, decided I wanted to make some “hot pockets” – meat and veggie stuffed adult hot pockets that need two hands, not one. They’re probably not good for my diet at all, but on the bright side, at least I mentally was feeling better. Bring on the sweatpants!
While these are not quite as labor intensive as my last go at a Buffalo Chicken “Hot Pocket,” they’re certainly as delicious.
Buffalo Chicken Pockets
1/2 ball of pizza dough, cut in 2 and rolled thin
2 Buffalo chicken sausage links, diced
1/2 sweet onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
2 slices of American cheese
3 tablespoons of butter
Fresh Parmesan Cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 450.
In a skillet cook chicken sausage, onion, and green peppers until chicken is browned.
On rolled out dough, place a slice of american cheese to each piece of dough. top with chicken sausage mixture. fold corners of dough to create a closed envelope. Place folded side down. Cut two or three small slits in the top of the dough.
Melt butter and pour evenly over dough pockets. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until pockets are golden brown. Let cool, serve and enjoy.
