How to Cook a Hot Pocket in a Toaster Oven

Hot Pockets are turnovers filled with savory cheeses, meats and vegetables that are suitable for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The tasty treats, which area available in over 30 varieties, can often be found in the frozen section of your grocery store. Hot Pockets are made with wholesome ingredients, real cheese where applicable, and they contain no trans fats. You can make Hot Pockets in minutes in a microwave; however, if you choose, you can also cook them in a toaster oven just as easily.

Step 1

Preheat your toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Unwrap your Hot Pocket and place it on a toaster oven baking sheet. Do not cook the Hot Pocket in the crisping sleeve when using the toaster oven; the sleeve helps the Hot Pocket dough become crisp only when it is cooked in a microwave.

Step 3

Bake the Hot Pocket in the toaster oven for 28 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the Hot Pocket from the oven when it is finished cooking; the outside should be a golden-brown color while the inside should be piping hot.

Step 5

Insert the Hot Pocket into the crisping sleeve to eat; the sleeve will allow you to hold the Hot Pocket without burning your fingers. Allow the Hot Pocket to cool for several minutes before eating.
