Davy Crockett's Hot Pockets

We had such a fun supper last night! The inspiration for this recipe came from a Food Network Recipe that I found on line, called "Davy Crockett's Ground Beef Wrap-Ups." I ended up changing the recipe quite a bit, and my children gave it the new name. So, here is my recipe for Davy Crockett's Hot Pockets, which I tripled for my family of twelve:


1 1/4 pounds lean ground beef
seasoned salt and pepper
2 (8 ounce) packages crescent rolls
1 carrot, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

sour cream
1 bunch scallions, sliced
1 can black olives, sliced
roma tomatoes, diced

cheddar cheese, grated


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Brown ground beef, onion and chopped carrot in skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Drain grease.
4. Stir in diced tomatoes with chilies.
5. Open out first package of crescent rolls onto a greased baking sheet. Separate into 4 individual squares. Do not separate into triangles. Press seams together.
6. Place 1/2 cup meat mixture on top of each rectangle.
7. Sprinkle grated cheddar on top.
8. Open second can of crescent rolls. Separate into 4 individual squares.
9. Place a dough square on top of each mound of meat and cheese.
10. Press edges together.
11. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 13 minutes, or until golden brown.
12. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top and sprinkle with scallions, black olives, and tomatoes.

Note: This recipe serves 4, as written. As I mentioned, I tripled it for our family of 12. One hot pocket is quite filling, especially if you top it with a pile of yummy toppings.

These were Totally Delicious and So Much Fun to Make and Eat! My family was Delighted with them and wants me to make them again soon!

Okay, now this is too weird. We made what we call pizza pockets just on Saturday and froze and ate MOnday! I make them because they are a recipe that you soak the wheat in, but come on girlfriend, can you believe the similarities in our lives right now?

I am printing this one up, thanks
