  • 4 1/2 teaspoon yeast, active dry
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 1/2 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 8 ounce ham, deli sliced
  • 3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 cup green peas, frozen
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red


  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water, then add warm milk, olive oil, egg, salt, and honey. Stir well.
  • Add in 3 cups of flour, and stir until well-combined.
  • *Slowly add more flour, 1/4 cup at at time, until dough becomes soft manageable but is still quite soft. (We find that about 3 1/3 cups is about right.)
  • Knead the dough for a few minutes, then let it rise in the bowl, covered, for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Punch down the dough, and divide it into 14 small balls.
  • Roll out each ball to a diameter of about 5 inches, then fill the centers with 3-4 tablespoons of ham, cheese, peas, and chopped bell peppers.
  • Fold up the hot pockets like little packages, then place them seam-down on a greased cookie sheet.
  • Brush the tops with an egg wash, if you like.
  • Bake at 400 F for about 14 minutes, or until the hot pockets are golden brown and no longer doughy.
  • Cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
