Expert Tips

You can add ground beef to the mashed potato before baking.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Unroll the dough on a floured surface.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion until they've browned.
  • 3 Mix the onion with the mashed potatoes and season to taste.
  • 4 Use a knife to cut out the dough. Add a little bit of the potatoes in the center and paint the edges with the whipped egg to seal. Cover the whole empanada in whipped egg.
  • 5 Bake the empanadas for 20 minutes and/or until they brown. Serve.

Natalia Carter There are only a few days left before we celebrate one of the most important holidays of the year: Thanksgiving. This year I decided to celebrate a little differently by giving the dishes a Latin touch. One of the dishes I plan on preparing for Thanksgiving is this potato empanada recipe because it makes the perfect appetizer. On this occasion I'll be using Pillsbury™ dough to make it more of a pastry and save me a little time in the kitchen.
