Disco Pockets! A creative way to use leftover beef stew

  • Food: Disco Pockets
  • Ingredients: leftover beef stew, Grands Biscuits, cheddar cheese
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 – 20 minutes

If I had the ability to predict the future, I would say that some Sunday meal this coming spring will be a homemade Hot Pocket extravaganza.  However, I cannot predict the future, so I will not say that.  What I can say is that Hot Pockets are amazing, especially when they are homemade.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “why do I care about your love (obsession) with Hot Pockets–this post is supposed to be about leftover beef stew!”  Well, dear reader, Kelly and I outdid ourselves with the creative leftovers post this week.  We turned our beef stew into the filling of a homemade Hot Pocket.  It was our lazy version of an attempt to make a beef pot pie!
