Hot Pocket Knock-Offs

This tip was from the Rachael Ray show in which Rocco Dispirto is a contributor. Rocco gave some ideas to spruce up lunches and one way was to create make-your-own-hot-pockets using healthy ingredients. Click here to view a video and Rocco's Lunch Packets recipe on Racheal Ray's site.

This is the basic idea:

Take a slice of trimmed sandwich bread
Place a few filling ingredients on one half of the bread (pepperoni, cheese, marinara, etc.)
Fold the sandwich to make a little triangle
"Fork" the edges to make it pretty
Toast until cheese is melted

You can make a BBQ chicken variation, Mexican variation, etc. I hope your family enjoys these as much as we have. The creativity is half the fun!
