There is not much flavor to arepas but they're terrific as a slider with meat, cheese, and veggies or as a breakfast biscuit with honey and butter. Quick, easy and cheap arepas can be served for game night, cocktail parties or whenever you need a quick bread for chile, soups or stews. You can make the patties as large as desired but 3-inches to 4-inches is the norm. Add fresh herbs and cheese to the dough for a savory version or sugar and spices for a breakfast variation.
Try these filled with BLT fixin's or pulled pork and salsa, chicken salad, avocado and bacon, mozzarella, tomato and basil, or sausage and eggs.
2.With wet hands, scoop up enough dough to make round patties, 3-inches in diameter and 3/8-1/2-inch thick. If the dough cracks around the edge, it is too dry. Mix a tablespoon of water at a time into the dough until it forms a smooth patty.
3.Over medium high heat spray a non-stick skillet or griddle with cooking spray or wipe it with some cooking oil.
4.Fry the patties 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until they are nice and golden brown. Patties can be frozen at this point.
5.Bake in 400° F. oven for 15 minutes or until they sound hollow when tapped. They'll puff up when done.
6.Split patties and fill as desired.
