Last year Tofurky introduced their version of a vegan hot pocket. Now, those types of things are generally not health food, but they are delicious. Also, I like to keep a few things in my freezer just in case I end up rushed for lunch and didn't prepare or buy anything. No stores near me carry them. I have requested them from several stores, including small ones that tend to be responsive, but so far, no luck. So this weekend I took it upon myself to just make one.

I made a standard pizza dough recipe. Then I made this cheese sauce, , which happens to be my favorite vegan mac and cheese. I chopped broccoli very small and ever so lightly steamed it. Then i chopped up some Upton's naturals seitan bacon. I mixed the broccoli and bacon with enough cheese sauce that it was nice and cheesy. I then rolled out 2 oz balls of dough, put about 1/3 cup filling in each, folded over like a calzone, and baked at 400 for 15 minutes.

I ate one right away and it was good, but the whole point was to see if I could freeze some to keep on hand. I let them cool completely, then wrapped tightly and froze. Today I took one out and microwaved it for 45 seconds, then put it in the toaster oven for 5 minutes. It was hot and perfect. The broccoli ended up a little over done upon reheating, so I will cook it even less next time, but these will make great emergency lunches.
