77 Ways to Pocket-fy Your Meals

387

Okay, here’s the dealio…we are obsessed with pockets. What is a pocket? It is a meal stuffed into a triangular pocket of deliciousness using flatbread strips and your filling of choice. We exclusively use our holy grail flatbread, Cutdacarb, because it’s easy to work with, takes on whatever flavor you season it with, and it fries up fast as hell. We rely on pocket-fying foods because it is a is a low carb hack to control your carb intake but also still get the satisfaction of eating your favorite foods.

The idea for pocket-fying things is based on our love of Hot Pockets (cue theme song) and the technique of folding a paper football or Greek Spanikopita (shout out to my grade school friend’s Yia Yia for showing us how to do this when we were 8 years old). The technique to fold is the same for all of these. See diagram below:

The pocket-fy process involves picking your filling of choice, adding it at the bottom of the flatbread strip, and using the folding technique shown above.

We deep fry 90% of our pockets in avocado oil. The rest are either pan fried in butter or baked in our toaster oven after being sprayed with avocado oil. Our Keto baes have used their air fryers as well.
