Keto Croque Monsieur - Low Carb Hot Pockets
If you're lusting after a hot keto sandwich filled with ham and gooey melted cheese, you've come to the right place. These keto hot pockets are made with a super simple nut free fathead dough and they're supremely satisfying.
- 60 g good quality ham
- 50 g Gruyere cheese or cheddar, sliced or grated
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard optional
Preheat the oven to 355F / 180C / 160 fan.
Place the mozzarella in a heat proof bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir and heat for a further 20 - 30 seconds until fully melted. Careful not to burn.
Add the sunflower seed flour (or sesame seed flour) and mix with a spatula to combine into a ball. You may need to use your hands and knead a bit too. If the dough gets too cold at any point simply pop back in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm.
Roll the dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper or a silicone mat and a sheet of grease-proof. Roll into an oblong shape.
Place the ham in the centre and top with cheese and mustard.
Fold the edges of the dough over to form a pocket. Turn the pocket over so the seal is at the bottom.
Piece two tiny air holes in the top with a sharp knife. Not too big or the cheese will escape!
Place the greaseproof paper with the hot pocket onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for around 12 - 15 minutes or until golden on top.
Slice in half and enjoy. Option to serve with mustard mayonnaise or a nice fresh salad.
