Family-Sized Hot Pocket Recipe

Updated on February 27, 2017

Family-Sized Hot Pocket

Here is a super quick, easy recipe I came up with the other night. I like to call it my "make something quick before they start eating the walls" meal. I threw a couple of things together that most people have in their kitchens already and came up with this family-sized hot pocket.

My family loved it, and I hope you do too. If you want to change the type of meat, or use a meat alternative instead, the results should still be pretty yummy. Just make sure to use the same amount of whatever you're using or it might not turn out right.

Oh and my walls were saved from torture and teeth marks. Yes, score for Mom!

Always remember, meals don't have to be expensive and decadent to be tasty.

Ingredients

  • 8 Stacks of thin sliced steak, the same kind of meat you use for philly cheese steaks
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Cans biscuits, any brand will work
  • 1 Cup mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1 Cup onions, finely diced
  • 4 Cups shredded cheddar cheese, the thicker shreds tend to work better
  • 2 Sprays cooking oil spray
  • 1 Glass baking dish

You do not have to use the exact same amount of ingredients I used. You can give it your own twist, by simply adding more or less of something.

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 350.
  2. Cook your meat until it is no longer pink.
  3. Once your meat is done, add your onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook just long enough to get your onions brown.
  4. Now spray your glass baking dish with your cooking spray until it is completely covered.
  5. Open both cans of biscuits, and make two huge balls of dough. One for the top and another for the bottom layer.
  6. Flatten your balls into two different, almost pizza-looking layers.
  7. Place your bottom layer in your pan and start covering it with your meat mixture.
  8. Add a cup of your cheese to each layer of meat you put on. I put three layers of meat and two layers of cheese.
  9. Place your second layer of dough on and pinch it together with the bottom to form what looks like a big hot pocket.
  10. Add the remainder of the cheese to the top of your dough and place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes and enjoy.

Good cooking is not based on how much time you spend making it, but by how much time it takes your family to eat it. Considering they had it all devoured and asking for more before I even had a chance to get any, this dish will be a guaranteed winner for my kids and hubby; they can not wait for me to cook it again.
