Hot Pocket Alternatives: 8 Recipes for Flaky, Filled Treats

-- Danielle Walsh

If you're a Hot Pocket fanatic -- like some of us here at Bon Appétit are were in high school -- you might be shocked/hurt/upset that two kinds of the meat-and-cheese-filled dough sacks have been recalled. The reason? Meat that's "unfit for human food." Yikes.

How can you get your handheld warm pastry fix now that you're terrified to touch another Hot Pocket? Easy -- make one of these alternative dinners or desserts made with puff pastry. Okay, you can't actually hold some of them, but their flavor will be reminiscent of your former flame. Plus, your homemade version can't get recalled. So there's that.
