Intro: Kid-friendly Ham & Cheese Hot Pockets
Homemade ham and cheese hot pockets are an easy family favorite. Everytime I make these the kids go crazy!
My mom made these for me all of the time growing up and everytime I share our family recipe for this kid-friendly meal everyone loves it!
Frozen Bread Dough
Cheese (I use sliced cheddar)
Step 1: The Bread
First I get a loaf of frozen bread dough and thaw it. Once thawed according to package directions, I roll it out on a greased cookie sheet.
Step 2: The Toppings
I add a layer of cheese down the middle. Then I top it off with a layer of ham.
Step 3: The Braid
I cut diagonal slits in the sides of the bread dough. I take the bottom section of bread and braid it over. I braid the other side making an "x". Then I keep braiding the dough until the ham and cheese are mostly covered.
Step 4: Baking
I bake it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool slightly, cut into strips, and enjoy!
