Tip

If using a TM31 saute on Varoma temperature instead of 120.

 Make a double batch and freeze once baked

Try different fillings - traditionally spiced lamb mixture works well. Alternatively roast root vegetables with mozarella.

The addition of Semolina makes them crisper and can be rolled quite thin.

    Terrible dough mix. It's not like a traditional empanada pastry but more like a bread mix. The dough is too sticky and wet and no amount of flour or kneading could fix it. Definitely would not recommend.

  • Great recipe! I used

    Submitted by EmilyG3 on 2. April 2016 - 18:25.

    Great recipe!

    I used wholemeal flour instead of plain flour (same quantity, 420g) and they turned out well! 

    For the filling I used:

    - beef mince, onion, garlic, some blitzed pumpkin I had leftover, some blitzed cheddar cheese, some pinenuts, worcestershire sauce, nutritional yeast and a small amount of a mixture of seasonings. 

    My kids loved these  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I made them for school lunches, I have 2 teenagers. I had left over shredded lamb, so made up a gravy & there you have it .. lamb empanada's . I will next time use the bacon filling to give variety.

    I also found mine split open during cooking,.. do you have any reasons why this happened? I thought oven to hot.. I had it on 190 deg fan forced!

    Again, thank you.. will be a regular make up for lunches in my household. Cheers.

  • You can also use that dough

    Submitted by foodieforever on 7. February 2015 - 15:09.

    You can also use that dough for pides or pizza - so a larger one works well. I made this version for the lunch box competition. Oven temperatures vary so whatever you cook pizza on.

    Soooo tasty! Loved the pastry - the semolina does provide a really nice crunch. Thinking about making larger, pastie size ones next time, less time consuming.  tmrc_emoticons.;) I also reduced oven temp to 200c.

    Submitted by foodieforever on 31. January 2015 - 17:26.

    The semolina gives them a slightly different texture to bread. You can substitute extra flour but won't have the same result. I have always made pizza from a recipe by Karen Martini  - this is a variation on that.

    Hi, is there a substitute for semolina?  Just add extra flour to make up the quantity or can I leave it out?

    Whole family loved these hot for dinner, hoping they'll like them cold for lunch boxes too. Used our own filling-turkey mince with taco seasoning and lots of vegies.

  • I freeze them after baking.

    Submitted by foodieforever on 29. January 2015 - 18:19.

    I freeze them after baking. When my children were school age they would assembe their lunch out of the freezer. Pre made Empanandas , muffin - I hated making sandwiches.

    For a vegetarian option roasted root veges - like sweet potato, red onion, capsicum, pumpkin and mozarella. I often cook extra roasted root veges as they are so useful - in salads with couscous

    Hi Fiona. Do you freeze before or after baking? And can you think of something vegetarian to use in place of bacon? Cheers, Loretta.
