Ingredients
  • frozen empanada discs 8
  • mozzarella cheese 2 cups
  • jar of store bought pizza sauce 1 (16 ounce)
  • pepperoni slices 1½ cups
  • extra virgin olive oil

Preparation
  1. Mix sauce, cheese and chopped pepperoni together in a bowl.
  2. On a cutting board or clean dry surface, lay out four empanada discs.
  3. Spoon some of the pepperoni mixture onto the middle of the disc then fold in half.
  4. Using a brush or your finger, gently moisten the closing part of the disc and squeeze down. This is to make sure your filling is tightly secured inside.
  5. Turn on your empanada maker and let it heat up
  6. Lightly brush the top of the empanadas with olive oil and place in the empanada maker.
  7. Close and tighten and let it cook for about 5-7 minutes. You can open and see if they are browned enough, if not repeat and add another 3-5 minutes.
  8. Let the empanadas sit for a few minutes before serving as the filling stays very hot inside!
