Freezer Hot Pockets

I was looking for some healthier frozen food options for Mr. T. to take to work with him. Even though I love Trader Joe’s their frozen foods are really not very healthy–especially considering the amount of sodium! So, while looking online I came across Money Saving Mom’s website and her project “4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer“. The Homemade pizza pockets sounded really good, and Mr. T. used to eat them all the time, so I decided to give it a try. They were really easy to make, and are really good. It was the first time I had actually made my own dough, and it was surprisingly easy. It seems like a great dough to use for homemade pizza in the future too. Next time, I’ll add more sauce, cheese, and just filling inside. I will probably make my own sauce also just to be more cautious about sodium intake and I think add some greens, like arugula into the pocket. I used chicken sausage for some of the pockets and turkey pepperoni in others, and had some left over swiss/gruyere shredded cheese–but I can see that any cheese really would work in here. I stuck two in each freezer bag and Mr. T. just grabs a bag every morning before work. Great stuff! I’ll post pictures of the final result soon.
