According to Nestle, the parent company of Hot Pockets, a frozen Hot Pockets Cheeseburger sandwich should cook for 2 minutes in a 1100 watt microwave oven. A refrigerated sandwich cooks for 1 minute. In a 700 watt microwave oven, a frozen Hot Pockets Cheeseburger sandwich cooks for 2 minutes 15 seconds. After microwaving, remove the sandwich and let sit for 2 minutes. The sandwich will be very hot. Use caution when handling.

Hot Pockets may also be cooked in a conventional oven. After placing the frozen sandwich on foil or a baking sheet, cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 24 minutes. Since all ovens vary, cooking times may require adjustments. If thawing a Hot Pocket before cooking, Nestle recommends thawing under refrigeration (less than 41 degrees Fahrenheit) for a maximum of 12 days.
