Whole Wheat Potato Feta Pan Pockets

Home Made Cooking

These are a great solution for when you’re stuck with no ideas for lunch of dinner or even brunch.

You can basically fill them with anything you like: Ground beef, chicken, pizza sauce and cheese, potato, blend of cheese etc.

I made these with what I had in the fridge which is mashed potatoes 🙂

The best tip for making these is using 2 sheets of parchment paper to roll the dough. This will make your work easier and cleaner at the end.

Easy to make and uses all sorts of fillings, these are a promised hit
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Plain Yogurt
  • 2½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1½ Tbsp Sesame Seeds (Optional)
  • 3-4 Tbsp Cold Water
For the Filling:
  • 1 Cup Mashed Potatoes (cooked)
  • ¾ Cup Crumbled Feta
  • 1 Small Onion – Chopped and Fried until golden
  • Salt & Pepper
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl mix all dough ingredients except for the water.
  2. The dough should be soft and a bit tacky, if it’s not, start adding 1 tablespoon water at a time and mix\knead until the dough is soft and all stuck together.
  3. Prepare the filling by mixing all filling ingredients together.
  4. Cut the dough ball you now have into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball.
  5. Place parchment paper on your work surface and spray with oil, then place a dough ball on it and spray with a bit of oil.
  6. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and using a rolling pin flatten the ball into a circle between the two sheets of parchment paper (this actually makes it easier and cleaner to work).
  7. Place about 1 tablespoon filling on one half of the circle and fold it in two to seal it. You can use your fingers and pinch the edges or use a fork to do it. The result will be a half circle shaped “pocket”.
  8. Repeat with all other dough balls.
  9. Preheat pan over medium-high heat and spray with a bit of oil.
  10. Place 3-4 “pockets” at a time in the pan and let them cook until they are browned on the bottom (about 2-3 minutes each side) and then flip for the other side to cook.
  11. If the “pocket” base/bottom needs browning/cooking, you can flip the pockets so they ”stand” in the pan (I supported them with my wooden spoon) until brown and ready to serve.
