Keto Morning Hot Pockets

For my review, I chose Morning Hot Pockets from the Breakfast in Five eBook. They are filled with scrambled eggs and crispy bacon but you can use anything you like - even sweet fillings would work. I made them a week ago while my mom was visiting, and she couldn't believe they were low-carb. They tasted just like the breakfast pockets she buys at a local bakery back in Prague.

Macronutrient ratio: Calories from carbs (3%), protein (25%), fat (72%)

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella (85 g/ 3 oz) - use low-moisture, part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese; not fresh mozzarella.
  • ⅓ cup almond flour (33 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 2 large eggs, scrambled
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter or ghee (28 g/ 1 oz)
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked (48 g/ 1.7 oz)

Instructions

  1. Cook the bacon and eggs. Prepare the dough: melt the shredded mozzarella (in a microwave oven or on the stove over a low heat) & add the almond flour. Stir until the dough is well-combined.
    To crisp up bacon: Place the bacon strips in a large pan and add a few tablespoons of water. Cook over medium-high heat until the water starts to boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the water evaporates and the bacon fat is rendered. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the bacon is lightly browned and crispy.
    To scramble eggs: Grease the skillet where you cooked the bacon with half of the butter or ghee and add both eggs. Cook over a medium-low heat until opaque, stirring constantly. Take off the heat and then add the remaining butter.

  2. Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper (I used a silicon mat and silicon rolling pin). Keto Morning Hot Pockets
  3. Place the bacon slices and scrambled eggs along the center (I cut my bacon into pieces). Keto Morning Hot Pockets
  4. Fold over and seal the dough. Make some holes for releasing the steam while baking. Keto Morning Hot Pockets
  5. Bake at 400 F (200 C) for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch (I baked mine for just 15 minutes). Keto Morning Hot Pockets

Can you tell me what the calories are for the keto hot pocket, thanks!

Reply

Hello, calories are listed as "kcal" and "energy". I hope this helps!

Reply

Made it a few weeks ago and the whole family loved it. It comes together pretty quick. Making it again by request from my kids who want to reheat for fast breakfasts before school.

Reply

Perhaps I'm missing a piece of information, but it says 2 servings - do you divide the dough in half at some point and make 2? Or is one half a pocket a serving? I've read and reread to see if I'm missing this, maybe I'm blind?

Reply

Hi Mary, it's half of the "wrap" making 2 pockets - one pocket per serving.

Reply

Would these freeze well? I can't wait to try them!

Reply

They do freeze well! I made 2 batches with ham & cheese and still have some in the freezer Smile

Reply

Kind of dry.  Don't know what I did wrong followed the recipe to a t.

Reply

It could be the type of mozzarella, that's the only thing I can think of. You need to use the one used for pizza, ideally shredded. I once bought a piece of mozzarella "for pizza" and the dough was too sticky (when uncooked). I'm not sure if this was the case.

Reply

You never cease to amaze me! I cannot get over how good these look- even my hubby would eat this low carb fix, and that's saying something!

Reply

Thank you Karly! I definitely plan to share more recipes using this simple method Smile

Reply

I have only been on a keto diet for a week, so of course I found myself craving pastries and bread. I was in a rush when I prepared this recipe, and did not roll the dough out enough to wrap the filling. I wet my fingers, which finally got the dough to seal. Next time, I will definitely make sure the dough is rolled out like the picture so I won't have such a hard time. I was a bit skeptical honestly when I took mine out of the oven. I refrigerated it over night, microwaved it the next morning, and it was scrumptious!!!
I will definitely be re-making, and this may even become a staple in my diet.

Reply

Thank you Brittany, I'm planning to make a video recipe with 2 more fillings soon Smile

Reply

I'm curious if it would be okay to add some cheese with the eggs and bacon inside, or if that would impact baking? I'd love to add some cheddar in there. Also, would crumbled sausage work instead of bacon? And what are the chances of making this a pizza hot pocket, with some sauce, pepperoni, veggies and a bit more mozzarella? Would this change how it bakes you think? Alternatively I could do the other fillings and then dip in sauce!

Reply

I think that will work just fine Smile Sausage, grated cheese, cooked mushrooms, spinach, ... - the only thing that may impact the results is the moisture. I even tried making "apple" pockets with zucchini and had to make a few adjustments because it was too moist (recipe soon).

Reply

I wonder if anyone has prepped the night before and just slid into the oven in the morning? They sound delish!

Reply

I haven't done that but I don't see why it shouldn't work (unless the filling is very moist) Smile

Reply

Made these for a quick dinner tonight. Wow! They were soooo good! I was a little sceptical at the 'pastry' being no more than cheese and almond flour but it WORKS!! Crisp and light, it was jus the like having 'real' pastry.
The kids loved them too..next time I will need to make a double batch so I can make sure that I get a full one to myself 😂

Reply

I tend to cook my bacon in the oven on 400° until almost crisp. Since the pockets are browned in there at the same temp, I'd cut down on prep time cooking bacon in the oven rather than in the pan. By the time the bacon is done, the dough is done and so are the eggs. Also, I like adding onions and garlic to my omelettes. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Martina.

Reply

Thank you for the great tip Meghan!

I want a healthy way of life!

Reply

i Love the reciepts as i am a diabetic. it is better for my sugar leavels and easy to make.

Reply

I just made one big pocket. I also used the bacon grease n no butter.  Next time im adding greens cuz GREENS ;)
This was outstanding.

Reply

What a simple and great idea for the pocket. Easy and fast!
I like to fill it with spinach and feta, and a bit of pizza-mozzarella.

Reply

Can you substitute coconut flour in this recipe? if so how much would you put?

Reply

Hi Derek, I'd start with 1 heaping tablespoon of coconut flour per every 1/3 cup of almond flour (that's about 12 grams/ 0.4 oz of coconut flour). I haven't tried it but that's where I'd start.

Reply

I use sunflower flour (ground sunflower seeds) because of a tree nut allergy, and it worked great!

Reply

I just love this recipe. A lot of the recipes are such a faf that I can't be bothered but this one is scrumptious and so easy to make.

Reply

I made this for brunch this morning and it was very good.  This recipe was easier to make than I expected.  The dough rolls out easily and assembling is very simple.  It is definitely a keeper.  Thanks for sharing.

Reply

I totally agree, I was surprised about how easy it is and it rolls out really well.

Reply

I forgot to add these old family tricks: drain the bacon (or any meat grease) into a can or jar and place in the fridge for future use. I use bacon grease to cook meat or eggs on the stove. It saves buying lard.
To make fluffy scrambled eggs, add a tsp-tbsp of water to the mix and scramble.

I tend to cook my bacon in the oven on 400° until almost crisp. Since the pockets are browned in there at the same temp, I'd cut down on prep time cooking bacon in the oven rather than in the pan.

Love your website, you have designed it to be so user friendly. As for your recipes they are really top notch and so versatile. For this recipe, I kicked up the flavor by adding salsa and sour cream. All your hard work is paying off, keep up the good work.

Quick and easy is definitely he way to go these days Smile

Hi! Love this idea, since normal hot pockets aren't the greatest. Since I'm veg, I plan to alter this slightly by making a tofu scramble instead of an egg one (I just really dislike eggs) and then either using some soyrizo or vege sausage. Maybe slightly her in carb than your recipe, but I'm sure it'll be delicious. Thanks for a great idea for a morning pastry to bring along to work and reheat! Starting now.

Reply

Sounds delish!

My Hubble would like new recipes. Smile

I think I am missing the steps for mixing the dough.

Reply

It's just melting the shredded cheese and mixing it with almond flour - that's it Smile

I love your recipes and it makes eating healthier easier with so many wonderful options.  Thank you

Reply

Do you think regular marble cheese would work for the dough?

Reply

I think it depends on the fat content - it shouldn't be too high in fat. The mozzarella used in this recipe is only 20% fat, more than that wouldn't work. And it has to be a low-moisture cheese.

Reply

Thanks for letting me try!

Reply

These cookbooks are just what I've been looking for - quick and easy recipes!

Reply

How the heck do you make the dough!?

Reply

It's recipe steps 1 + 2 (simple mixing the melted mozzarella and almond flour) - that's it!

Reply

Hi! These sound and look amazing. I'm a little confused w the wording of the directions, though! I melt the mozzarella and stir it in with the almond flour and.... what else? add the remaining butter? Mozzarella typically cools very quickly and then clumps, so how did you achieve such smooth dough consistency???? I'm probably misunderstanding something so I'm sorry! Thanks Smile

Reply

Hi JL, if you use the right type of mozzarella (low moisture, pizza type), all you need is to mix it with almond flour and then roll it out Smile

Reply

Wonder if other types of cheese would also work well. I might try it with cheddar...

Reply

I haven't tried it but I don't think it would work with cheddar. Based on what I've tried, both fat content and moisture can make a big difference. In these pockets I used Waitrose Grated Mozzarella (UK) which was great.
In another recipe, I used pizza-type mozzarella that was slightly moist (Tesco Mozzarella For Pizza): Fat Head Pizza with Pepperoni & Jalapeños - it wasn't as good as ready-made grated mozzarella. You can see on the video that it was quite sticky. I suppose that it still had too much moisture.

Reply

Thanks for the recipies.
It keeps me going on, I feel much better allready.
Now I want to lose some weight, I think it will come automaticly intime when my body is more in balance.
Thanks from the netherlands

Hi Martina,
I haven't seen part-skim, low-moisture mozzarella in Germany. Is there any other cheese I can substitute? Or can I do something to the fresh mozzarella? Like squeeze it out in a cheese cloth, before melting?
Thanks!

Reply

I suppose any mild tasting cheese with about 20% fat would work. Make sure it's not a high-fat and low moisture cheese or the dough would be too sticky. Fresh mozzarella wouldn't work.

Reply

Very excited about the books, and recipes.

Reply

Looks delicious - Can't wait to try them!

Reply

Amazing

Reply

At the end of step 1 you say "Take off the heat and then add the remaining butter." But I don't see what to do with the butter in the next steps. Do I add it to the flour & cheese mixture?

Reply

Hi Maria, all butter is used in the scrambled eggs (first to grease, then added after they are cooked).

Reply

Got it! Thank you. Can't wait to try them.

I need to make these. Thanks for the recipe!! Do you think they will freeze well? I'd like to prep a few for the week. I'm always on the run. Thanks!

I think they will although I haven't tried it - they were gone as soon as I made them Smile

Natasha, did you try freezing them? And how did they turn out? I'd like to make a bunch for my family of 6 to reheat and eat while camping. Thanks!

I am about to walk the 3 Capes Track in Tasmania after being once blind and in a wheelchair from M.S. relapses. Low Carb/Keto has helped me drop the majority of my last residual M.S. Symptom - Fatigue allowing me to do this. The ideas in these books would  definitely aid me in expanding my food repertoire. Kindly, Shani Smile

Reply

So to make the dough, you just melt the mozzarella on the stove in a pan, and add the almond flour, and that is it?

Reply

Yes that's it! You can melt in in the microwave oven or on the stove (low heat).

Reply

Genius!!! Do you think these could be frozen prior to baking?

Reply

I'm so excited to make these! Do you think they could be batch baked on Sundays for for weekday breakfast at work? Maybe put in a microwave or toaster oven to re-heat? Thanks for sharing!

Reply

Absolutely! I think they should last refrigerated for 4-5 days.
