Ham & cheese stromboli otherwise known as the homemade hot pocket. Quick and easy work night meal that the whole family can enjoy!

Ham & Cheese Stromboli: a homemade hot pocket

 

I think with this recipe I have found Mr P’s favorite food. When we first lived together Mr P loved himself a hot pocket! They were a consistent request when we went grocery shopping. Since having children especially one with severe food allergies our eating habits have improved. We rarely buy frozen meals that you can just pop in the microwave because of all the added ingredients.

I have tried to make sandwich melts to come close to this favorite of his but did not get it until last week. I am excited to share this homemade hot pocket with you this week. It was much easier than I expected and turned out so good that the little ones also enjoyed the meal, yippee! This is a definite recipe to put on our regular rotation especially on work nights.

This homemade Chinese take out dish of lo mein is great for using up your left over pork loin. It can be made with classic lo mein noodles, but we made it with German spaetzle from Aldi’s. We make a number of classically Chinese take out dishes due to my son’s food allergies. It is really risky taking a child who is allergic to nuts, seeds, fish and cucumbers (!?) to a Chinese restaurant. As a result I began making some of my favorite take out dishes at home.
