National Empanada Day

Five Food Finds about Empanadas

The Spanish word for bread is “pan”.  “Empanar” is a verb form that means “to bread”.  Emapanada is the past-participle, “breaded”.

It’s basically a single-serving turnover.  It can be filled with sweet foods like fruits, sugars, and syrups, or savory foods like meats, cheeses, and oils.

They originated in northwest Spain, in a region known as Galicia.

Today they are most popular in Spanish-speaking countries across Europe and South America.

Originally they were made with bread dough, but now they are made with pastries as well.
