When work gets super busy, it’s nice to have a dinner you can essentially pull out of the freezer, like Nancy Silverton’s Savory Brioche Pockets stuffed with asparagus, potatoes and cheese (or whatever you fancy, really). The last time I made her base brioche dough, I assembled a bunch of these little gourmet hot pockets and froze them, unbaked. Waiting for me until I need them, like everything should, right? Asparagus is in full swing at the farmers’ markets here, and this makes a great light springtime dinner with a salad and glass of wine. I can also see these being a good vehicle for those random leftover veggie bits and pieces that are usually kicking around my fridge.
For the recipe, see Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan or read Carie’s Loaves and Stitches. There’s also a video of Nancy and Julia making the pockets together. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!
