Inside Out Hot Pocket Soup

In continuing my series on re-making gamer food I started thinking about something even more classic than pizza. Hot Pockets! Hot pockets are ideal for gaming. You can eat it one handed with no utensils required. They heat up fast. They're relatively un-messy. And you can pretend you're eating a serving of vegetables if you go for the broccoli & cheese one instead of the usual pepperoni.

Well I've got a hot pocket that will turn your mind inside out! I've taken all the ingredients of a classic pepperoni hot pocket and made it into a soup. Yup, there's everything there. Pepperoni, sauce, cheese and even the 'crust' making an appearance as dumplings! This soup is delicious but make sure to watch the sodium. The pepperoni can make it very salty very quickly.

Inside Out Hot Pocket Soup

4 Servings | Total Time: 15 min | Apprentice

  • 2 cans Low Sodium Tomato Soup
  • 1 Tbl Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tbl Basil
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 pkg Pepperoni Slices
  • 1 pkg Biscuits
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese
Craft: Pour soup into a large pot over medium heat. Add two soup cans full of water and stir to combine. Add basil and oregano. Dice the pepperoni slices and add to the pot. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer. Open biscuits and separate them. Cut four of them up into 1" pieces and drop them one at a time into the soup. Bake the rest of the biscuits according to package instructions. Simmer soup for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally until biscuit pieces are no longer doughy. Garnish with cheese.

Strategies: This soup can be very, very salty so be sure to get low sodium soup and don't add any salt!
