Making my own Hot Pockets
Have you ever tried to make your own Hot Pockets? I’m here today to try and show you what works, what needs some improvements, and how it all comes together in a flash. And best of all… you can use your air fryer. All in all, 10 out of 10, will try again!
Crescent roll “Hot Pockets”
- 1 tube of pop-can refrigerated crescent dough
- 1 egg, beaten + a splash of water
- Marinara or pizza sauce
- Mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Your favorite pizza toppings
- Unroll your crescent roll dough and pinch together all the seams.
- Cut the crescent sheet in 4 equal rectangles.
- Add marinara to one side of each of your rectangles, taking care to not go to the edge (you’ll need to seal it later with egg wash).
- Add a heaping helping of your toppings, keep them in the middle, away from the sides where you’ll seal.
- Using a pastry brush, paint the edges of all the pastry with egg wash.
- Pull the opposite side of the crescent (with no sauce or toppings) over the toppings.
- Use a fork to press the edges to seal them together.
- Egg wash the tops of all of the pockets.
- Using a sharp knife, make 2-3 air holes so your pastry doesn’t burst in the air fryer.
- For Deluxe Air Fryer trays:
- Place your pocket on a piece of parchment and set onto your try. Air fry at 300F for 10 minutes, turn over and remove the parchment. Air fry for an additional 5 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
- For Deluxe Air Fryer Small Bar Pan:
- Place your pocket on the small bar pan and set onto your tray. Air fry at 300F for 10 minutes, turn over and air fry for an additional 5 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
- For basket air fryers:
- Place your pocket in the basket of your air fryer. Air fry at 300F for 10 minutes, turn over and air fry for an additional 5 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
