Easy Cheap Homemade Hot Pockets
Everyone loves those scrumptious cheesy ooey gooey hot pockets, they are an American staple food and the easiest hot lunch ever. I personally love hot pockets, but the market by my dorm never has the kind I like best (Ham & Cheese). And the other day I was really craving some ham and cheese hot pockets and was not wanting to have to take a bus to be able to get them so in that moment I decided it was time to make my own hot pockets.

This recipe is extremely easy and is a perfect quick fun meal as well as something that the whole family can get involved with! You can literally make any type of hot pocket that you want, the possibilities are endless! When I made them I made sure to make some pizza ones so my boyfriend could have some of his favorites.
