Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Hot Pockets!
Everybody remembers where they were on that day in 1983 when Hot Pockets first appeared. It was a giant leap into the future. A miracle some called it, for nobody could seem to say where the Hot Pockets came from. They just existed. Food, and therefore humanity, would never be the same again. The efficiency, the culinary explosion, a modern miracle that truly served as an evolutionary step for all of mankind. An entire meal in a pocket that you could hold in your hand. Joy in the streets was met by existential dread. Where could humanity go from here? Had we truly reached our civilizational zenith? Religions formed over night, some might even say cults. But then a second flavor appeared. And then a third. And now over fifty, each richer and more complex than the last. Since that day in 1983, humanity has been on the precipice of our next phase of being, but for one obstacle in the way. How are you supposed to eat a Hot Pocket without burning the hell out of the inside of your mouth? I mean, come on. It’s crazy hot, but it’s seriously impossible to wait just five minutes until it comes out of the microwave. No, I need it now. Give me that Hot Pocket.

I thought Delaney was crazy but then I realized that I’ve prob eaten more ham and cheese hot pockets than pepperoni Also Christina trying to figure out what they were arguing about is hilarious but I’m soft for how she asked Delaney what he said

Let's be real, it wouldn't be as authentic to the original if the filling didn't bust out.

The only thing I find deeply disturbing and upsetting about this video is that they did not include the best flavor of hot pocket in the video... Philadelphia cheese steak

I also agree with Delaney that the ham and cheese, yet bland is the original haha. Not the one with the cubes ham but the one with the thinly sliced ham is my fav

I absolutely died of laughter when Claire said "I don't think I've gourmeted something so hard." 17:49 . I love how happy and excited she was at the first batch. She even impressed herself by making Hot Pockets beyond gourmet just on the first day.

also the prototype being too flaky. doesn't "gourmet" connote that this would be a fancier (better made) version of the original? or is it gourmet simply because of the ingredients and hands-on method of cooking?

She did it wrong. It's not frozen in the middle when it comes out of the oven.

wait how did she get the butter into a square 10:00
Sophia Van Beek

It's a technique you see a lot in pastry-making. You continue pounding the butter out and rotating/shaping the block until it becomes roughly a square. Then, I would use a bench scraper or the side of a knife to make the edges really straight by running it along the sides of the butter.

A hot pocket is never done until it’s slightly exploding out the sides

Sugar, Spice and everything nice, these were ingredients chosen to make perfect little pocket, but than everything else fell in and hot pockets became a thing

the baking may have resulted in less seam busting by rotating the pan in the oven about half way through.

I think the downfall was making the dough likes bread and not a pie crust. Hot pockets have the flakey texture of pies not the layers of a croissant.
