Meatball Pockets


meatball pockets (8)

You can put just about anything you want inside of puff pastry to make homemade hot pocket! I promise that you will enjoy this at least 10 times more than a frozen pocket filled with mystery meat.

Leftover ham and cheese? Ham and cheese pocket! Leftover tacos? Taco pocket! Leftover meatballs? Meatball pocket! Here, I used Mama Tilly’s Meatball recipe and made an easy to eat meatball sub! I recommend that you add small amount of some kind of sauce to whichever types of homemade hot pockets you choose.

Meatball Pockets

Puff pastry, defrosted
Leftover meatballs, cut into pieces
Leftover marinara sauce
Parmesan cheese
Mozzarella cheese
1 egg white
1 teaspoon water

Preheat oven to 425.

Add egg white and water together in a small bowl and mix well.

Roll out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. You don’t need to roll much, just make the sheet slightly thinner.

Cut sheet into four even pieces.

Place meatballs, marinara and mozzarella cheese into one side of the puff pastry, leaving a clean edge to seal.

Fold into triangles. You can brush water onto the edges to seal the pastry, but I find that simply pressing the dough together works fine.

Brush tops with egg white/water mixture.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. This morning I saw where someone put leftover beef stroganoff
    inside a puff pastry. I’m going to get some and keep on hand just to see what leftovers I can through in there. This is a great idea because we make meatballs quite often. It would be a way to switch it up. Thanks for the post!
