I make this pudding for my kids lunch, it’s very easy and it’s a nice treat for them. You can use skim milk which lowers the fat content, and even use stevia or something like that instead of sugar if you’d like. My mom does that for my dad because he is diabetic, and it turns out pretty good!

I had fun testing this recipe out — once again, it was a big hit with my entire family! My one year old even ate it (what a mess).
I found this recipe on everydayfoodstorage.net and it can be filled whith whatever you like. My next filling for it will be chicken broccoli and cheese, because I know my kids will love it!
Pepperoni Lunch Pocket
1 C Luke warm water
1 1/2 tsp Yeast
1 tsp Sugar
2 T Olive Oil or Canola
1/2 tsp Salt
3 C flour (I used 2 cups whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose, but you can change the ratios to fit your taste)
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, oil and salt. Slowly mix in flour and knead. (I used my Kitchen Aid — using dough hook on low.) Cover and let rise for 45 minutes.
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
2. When dough is ready, seperate it into 6 even balls.
3. Roll one ball of dough out to a 1/8 inch thick circle.
4. Let dough rest for 5 minutes.
5. Put whatever filling you would like onto the dough.
6. Fold dough in half and fold up edges and then mash the edges with a fork.
7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Chicken broccoli Cheese Pocket
I have made the chicken mixture for over 13 years and I thought it would taste fabulous in the pocket.
2 chicken breast (boiled)
1 C broccoli, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 C cheddar cheese
1/2 C mayo
2 tsp dill
1. Chop the chicken (I use a hand chopper)
2. Add all the ingredients to the chopped chicken in a bowl.
3. Scoop a 6th of the mixture onto your dough.
4. Bake on 375 for 15 to 20 minutes.
A great idea for keeping your children’s lunch warm
I found this at Wal Mart and wasn’t sure how well it would work, because the thermos my mom sent with me when I was a kid didn’t keep things warm. Well, it works like a charm! My kids have taken Ramen and Mac and cheese — it has stayed warm for over 4 hours until lunch. 🙂 If you can, by it in the store instead of online because it is $7 more online.
