Crab & Cheddar Hot Pockets

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

I planned on posting this recipe last night. However, I got a bit of a reality-check after spending the day at school for in-service, followed by an evening BodyPump class at my gym. It’s easy to forget how tiring my “normal” routine is during the summer months. Needless to say, I just felt like vegging out last night, so that’s what I did.

Last week, I shared with you all this pizza that I had while out to lunch. I also said that I couldn’t wait to use the same ingredients in a new way. I was so happy that this recipe turned out well the first time around; Chris was a fan too!



  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Roll out pizza dough, & cut into four equal pieces.
  • Spread cream cheese on each piece of dough, then top with spinach, crab, & cheddar.
  • Fold dough over to create a “pocket,” & seal edges with a fork.
  • Poke a few holes in the top of each pocket to ventilate.
  • I also sprayed the top of each pocket with cooking spray & topped with some extra cheddar, but this step is optional.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, or until dough becomes golden-brown.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of any recipe that 1) comes together quickly, 2) requires few ingredients, & 3) tastes good. This is a winner on all accounts!

What are your plans for the weekend? I don’t have anything going on tomorrow, but Sunday we’re headed to a get together with some of Chris’s co-workers. (Side note… any good side dish recipes you can share?)

      It actually doesn’t taste much different! I know imitation “krab” meat can sometimes be a little funky, but this stuff was real crab claw meat. Claw meat sometimes has a stronger taste, so you can use less. Perfect because 1 can was enough!

    That looks great AND easy. I’m going to try this one! Inservice this week for me on Tuesday, I’m sure I’ll be asleep by 8:30.

      You might want to double this if you’re making it for the whole family (depending on how much they eat!). I had one & Chris had three. I could’ve easily had more than 1, but I know Chris needs a big portion so I refrained. :-)
