Air Fryer Homemade Hot Pockets

We love super simple recipes in our house, especially ones we can cook in the Air Fryer! Some of our favorites would have to be Air Fryer Mac and Cheese and our Air Fryer Stuffed Crescent rolls

A new favorite recipe in our house these days is Homemade Air Fryer Hot Pockets! With a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of prep, you will have a flaky crispy hot pocket that is 1000 times better than the ones you find in the freezer section at the grocery store. Once you try these, you will never buy hot pockets again! 

You will love these because:

  • They are easy to prep!
  • You can make them ahead! 
  • Made to Order! 

How to make Air Fryer Homemade Hot Pockets

  • Remove the biscuits from the can.  
  • Take each biscuit and separate it in half.  The layers will be easy to separate.  
  • Take a slice of turkey or ham and fold it in fours.  Lay in the middle of your biscuit.
  • Take a piece of cheese and lay that on top of your meat.
  • Close your biscuit by folding the top back over.
  • Seal the edges with your fingers.
  • Baste with melted butter
  • Preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees.
  • Spray your air fryer with canola spray.
  • Place your hot pockets in your air fryer basket or tray,
  • After 4 minutes flip your hot pockets, baste with butter.
  • Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Get creative! We use deli ham or turkey, but you can easily swap this out for pepperoni and a little bit of pizza sauce. 
  • If you are having trouble sealing your hot pockets, dab a little water on the seam and then smooth it closed. 

Storage

These are best served right away because you want them to be hot and crispy. 

Fridge

Store your leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. They will lose their crispiness, but you can always crispy them back up in the Air Fryer. 

Make Ahead

These homemade hot pockets are perfect to make ahead and freeze. Follow the recipe and cook them. 

Once cooked, let them cool and then place them on a tray lined with parchment paper and freeze. After they are frozen you can wrap them individually and then place them in a freezer-safe bag. 

When you are ready to serve, warm them up in the Air Fryer to become crispy again. 

Can I cook these in the oven?

If you don’t own an Air Fryer you can make these in the oven. You will bake for about 18 minutes (or until browned) at 400 degrees.
