Broccoli-Cheddar Pockets — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, July 9th, 2012


Similar to a calzone, sandwich pockets consist of a light, delicate dough that’s filled with any number of sweet or savory combinations and baked in the oven. Food Network Magazine’s Broccoli-Cheddar Pockets (pictured above) are an easy, cheesy dinner solution that can be made in just 35 minutes. To prepare, roll out store-bought bread dough, stuff with a vegetarian mixture of blanched broccoli, sour cream, shredded cheddar and chives, and then bake until the pastry is crispy and golden brown. Check out this step-by-step photo gallery to find out the best way to fold the dough and prevent ingredient leakage. These hand-held beauties are a sure-fire way to get picky eaters to enjoy veggies, so try experimenting with other good-for-you fillings.

Boasting crunchy shredded cabbage and carrots, this 10-minute side is dressed with a creamy mustard-mayonnaise topping and simple seasonings. To enhance the natural flavors of the dish, Bobby includes a secret ingredient in the recipe – a few tablespoons of sugar – which eliminates any potential bitterness without adding sweetness.

    I'm not sure if replacing meat with a ton of cheese and dairy is a healthy alternative to skipping meat for a day. It might even have more calories, and it definitely has more carbs. At least accompany this with a regular greens salad with a light vinaigrette. I personally like broccoli, but all that cheese would mask it's flavor.

    I agree with DeeDee, but that looks so good.
