How To Make asian sammie pocket

  • 1
    Peel and finely dice the eggplant. Preheat oven to 350* or whatever the dough package directions instruct.
  • 2
    Sautee eggplant with vinegar in olive oil until browned and tender. Sautee on higher heat to evaporate any moisture that escapes the eggplant.
  • 3
    Add all the rest of the ingredients except for dough. Sautee, while stirring, for 5-7 minutes.
  • 4
    Turn off heat. Taste and add more salt, if needed.
  • 5
    Unroll dough and attach two triangles together. Spoon in about 5 tablespoons of eggplant mixture. Top with chunks of cheese. Top that with two other dough triangles. Seam all sides together with fingers, except for one small side; leave that one open.
  • 6
    Repeat to make one more sammie pocket.
  • 7
    Bake in oven 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Optional: cut crusts off the sides to make it less dough-y.
