Yes, hot pockets. I had never tried hot pockets until we were married. They certainly lived up to my expectation of them, but my husband loved them. I used to get them for him as an occasional lunch treat. But they are around $2 for two small pockets, so there is no way I am going to buy them now. So, I made them.
I started with my tortilla recipe.
2 cups whole white wheat flour - $0.32
3/4 teaspoons salt - $0.03, if that
1/4 cup shortening - $0.25
1/2 cups water - $0
Mix all of the ingredients together. I divided this into four, as I wanted the crust a little thicker than a tortilla. I rolled each into a circle. Then I smeared them with tomato sauce, making sure I left space around the edges.
12 oz can GV tomato paste - $0.75
12 oz can filled with water - $0
1 tablespoon chopped garlic - $0.09
1 tablespoon oregano - $0.06
1/4 teaspoon stevia - $0.04
4 oz peppers and onions - $0.25
But I didn't use the whole batch, I used about a half of the recipe, $0.60, saving the rest in the fridge for convenient future use.
Then, I folded the tortilla over and scrunched the edges together.
Four of these took an hour in the crock pot on high, so they would take maybe twenty minutes in the oven at 350. I had to stack my cake pans, just as I did in crock pot dehydration. I would call these calzones, but for my husband, they are hot pockets, because that makes him happy.

UPDATE: A wise reader tested the recipe in the oven and it took about 30 minutes at 450 degrees, not 20 minutes as I suggested.
