Breakfast Hot Pockets

A breakfast hot pocket I made up using Suzanne’s bun recipe.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 12 buns

Prep Time: 1 hour   Cook Time: 20-25 min  


1 standard loaf Suzanne’s Grandmother Bun recipe:

1 1/2 cups warm milk or water
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
4 cups flour


1 lb bacon
1 large onion, chopped
2 eggs, scrambled
1/4 lb ham, finely chopped
1 c chopped boiled potatoes
1/2 c chopped pepper (your choice – green, red, hot)
1/2 tsp black pepper


Prepare dough:

In a large bowl, combine milk or water, yeast, salt, sugar, egg, and oil. Let sit five minutes. Stir in the first cup and a half of flour with a heavy spoon. Add the next cup of flour a little at a time as needed, stirring until dough becomes too stiff to continue stirring easily. Add a little more flour and begin kneading. The amount of flour is approximate‚Äďyour mileage may vary! Continue adding flour and kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let dough rise in a greased, covered bowl until doubled. (Usually, about an hour.)

Punch down dough; divide in half. Roll half of dough to 1/4″ thick; cut into 4 or 5″ circles. Put bacon filling in center; brush edges with water. Fold in half and seal edges. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat until all dough and filling are used. Beat 1 egg yolk with 2 tsp water; brush on bun tops. Cut slits on top. Let rise in a warm place for 15 – 20 minutes.


While dough is rising, prepare the filling. Cut bacon into 1/2″ pieces; cook in a skillet until cooked but not crisp; drain. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp grease; add onion and cook until tender. Scramble eggs. Combine scrambled eggs, onion, bacon, ham, potatoes, pepper, and black pepper; set aside.

Bake at 375 for 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown.

    Cindy, does this recipe really need only two eggs or should that read 12 eggs. Hot pockets have become a thing around here lately, (no one liked anything wrapped in a crust up until about three months ago, well, except apple pie) and I’m thinking about making and freezing these for a quick before school or after work snack for the family. But two eggs with all that meat and potatoes seems too little.
