Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 10 minutes
Bake Time  15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes


  • 1 or 2 rolls puff pastry - bought (I used 2 so I could freeze - they freeze very well)
  • Cooked chicken or other meat (I used extra lean beef mince very finely minced)
  • Very finely chopped onion or dried onion flakes
  • Salt, pepper, and then I started adding
  • Mixed herbs
  • Origanum
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • Meat spice and literally whatever your taste buds like
  • Approximately 1 tbsp oil to fry as this must be a dry fry


Roll the pastry out in about 8-12cm diameter circles (I have a press to fold my perogies).

3 Empanada Dough Presses

Fry onion and add mince, then mash until fine.

When it looks light in color (not raw), add spices and let simmer about 5-10 mins. Let cool.

In the meantime, have all your circles ready, your baking trays lined with parchment paper so definitely assured for no sticking and begin.

Sit down as your back will get very tired.

Place a teaspoonful of meat in the middle and fold over in a half-moon shape and pinch tightly closed using your fingers or best, a fork.

Place all together on baking trays and brush with beaten egg.

Bake in an oven at 200C / 400F for approximately 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve in soup or as a side snack.
