Philly Cheese Steak - Croissant Pocket

Time Cooked: 1:40. The standard

Crips Factor: Perfect

At first I dismmised this pocket as a Beef And Cheddar knock off however after several bites I must say that this might be my new favorite pocket. What makes this pocket is the flaky crust. I'm not sure that there is a Beef & Cheddar flavored Croissant Pocket as I have only had the original.

Bottom line: Don't let the "Philly" aspect fool you, this is just a croissant version of the Beef & Cheddar, albeit a serious upgrade.

Hot Bloggers,
I'm trying to introduce my special lady friend to Hot Pockets and I really want her to enjoy the wholesome cheesy goodness with me. I understand 1:40 is the perfect cooking time for just one Hot Pocket, but if I want to cook two Hot Pockets and get them to the same point of crispy goodness simultaniously, if you know what I mean , what technique do you recommend I use?
Thanks,
Big Mac with Cheese

Interesting dilema BMwC. Multi pocketing can quite the challenge. What you need to do first is to test your particular microwave ovens power. No 2 microwaves re the same hence the 1:40 cooking time for mine despite the recommended 1:55 - 2 minutes suggested in the directions.

I would suggest taking the suggested cooking time for 2 pockets on the directions and reducing it by a good 15%. This way if they are a little undercooked you can always heat some more. Better undercooked than overcooked I say.

i think three minutes would do just fine. one should always watch what the are nuking though. this is why the make the light come on while the microwave is on.

What if you want to heat three pockets simultaneously? How would you know the time?

What about for three pockets? What time should I use?

Three @ one time? Hmm. Could be a recipe for disaster if not done correctly. I would recommend doing 2 at one time adding about 10 seconds to the recommended time, then just do one solo.
