Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Hot Pockets!
Everybody remembers where they were on that day in 1983 when Hot Pockets first appeared. It was a giant leap into the future. A miracle some called it, for nobody could seem to say where the Hot Pockets came from. They just existed. Food, and therefore humanity, would never be the same again. The efficiency, the culinary explosion, a modern miracle that truly served as an evolutionary step for all of mankind. An entire meal in a pocket that you could hold in your hand. Joy in the streets was met by existential dread. Where could humanity go from here? Had we truly reached our civilizational zenith? Religions formed over night, some might even say cults. But then a second flavor appeared. And then a third. And now over fifty, each richer and more complex than the last. Since that day in 1983, humanity has been on the precipice of our next phase of being, but for one obstacle in the way. How are you supposed to eat a Hot Pocket without burning the hell out of the inside of your mouth? I mean, come on. It’s crazy hot, but it’s seriously impossible to wait just five minutes until it comes out of the microwave. No, I need it now. Give me that Hot Pocket.

That’s definitely not too flaky that’s perfect. I tried to make hot pockets with pie dough because I was feeling lazy and the result was so flaky it fell apart when you tried to eat it

Yeah! I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit! if you take that machine that they use to form the hot Pocket- the type of dough it takes- for the machine to be able to crimp property . the exact amount of filling you need . you did pretty good for the amount of time that you got it done in!

I must say, this is my, this is my favorite. Not because I like hot pocket(they are disgusting ), but because I make a lot of hand pies. I truly enjoyed the idea of making a more savory and flaky crust and will be attempting such with the spinach pies this weekend. Thanks for all the effort you put into all your videos, I enjoy them immensely.
