I want to make a hot pocket type thing for my husband's lunch any ideas what I should make the outside out of? I was thinking some puff pastry or some bread dough. What ever it is I want to make it from scratch so that I feel good about him eating it. As it is now, I have a freezer full of food that is packed full of salt and preservatives- not really the best lunch. Plus it would be good to sneek some veggies in as well.
There are numerous versions of this. What US marketeers call a Hot Pocket is known as a pastie, turnover, empanada, calzone, stromboli, etc. You can use puff pastry, pie crust, pizza dough or even egg roll wrappers.
