Try Something New With These Mac ‘n Cheese Empanadas
Here at Twistity, we love putting a positive spin on everything we write about. And today, Tastemade has bought us three recipes that certainly take the ordinary and spin it into extraordinary home meals.
Out of all three recipes, the one that’s sure to make you salivate are these savory Mac ‘n Cheese Empanadas.
With 10 minutes of prep, and 20 minutes of cook time, this 30 minute meal serves as a great party appetizer, finger food, or mid-day munchie. Here’s what you need to get started:
For the dough:
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons ice-cold water
1/2 cup cold butter, grated and chilled
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon water)
For the filling:
6 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons goldfish cracker crumbs
In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add in the grated and chilled butter until the mixture is coarse.
Slowly pour a few tablespoons of iced water in at a time while mixing with your hands. Once the mixture begins to hold and appears crumbly, form a rough ball and cover it with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 1 hour, and begin working on the Mac ‘N Cheese.
Combine the butter and flour in a pot. Slowly pour in cold milk, while stirring. Allow the mixture to thicken before stirring in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper as needed, and finally add the cooked elbow macaroni.
Now you can roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface to cut out the rounds.
Fill each round with 1-2 tablespoons of mac and cheese. Apply the egg wash around the edges and then seal and crimp each one closed.
Brush the egg wash on the surfaces and, for some added flavor, sprinkle some goldfish cracker crumbs on top.
To wrap up this recipe, bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
And there you have it: Mac ‘n Cheese Empanadas. Just make sure you don’t eat them as fast as you cooked them.
