Empanadillas - Savoury Puff Pastries
We rolled out a packet of puff pastry as thinly as we could and
cut out circles and squares and rectangles ready for our savoury
We made several fillings for our pastries. One was minced lamb
cooked with chilli, garlic and a little soy & sesame sauce.
We also chopped up some mushrooms, broccoli florets and sliced
mushrooms and black pudding. On some of our circles we put dolcelatte
cheese and fresh mint or broccoli before folding them into half
We put the cooled minced lamb mixture onto our rectangles of
pastry before folding in half. We had some slices of peppered
salami which we stuffed with more of the dolcelatte cheese and
rolled into tubes. We then rolled them in pastry squares, tucking
in the edges.
We fried our sliced mushrooms and black pudding until cooked
then let them cool before stacking them in the middle of more
pastry circles. We then topped with another circle of pastry and
sealed them tightly and brushed all of our empanadillas with egg
They were then all baked in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for
about 15 mins. We served them warm with our left over broccoli,
mushrooms, black pudding and dolcelatte cheese.
