Empanadas are a delicious and versatile food that can be enjoyed as a meal or appetizer. These stuffed bread or pastry dishes originate from Galicia in Spain and Portugal, and have since become popular in many Latin American and European countries. The name empanada comes from the verb empanar, which means to wrap or coat in bread. Empanadas are made by folding dough or a bread patty around a stuffing of meat, vegetables, or fruit. Fried or baked, empanadas offer an exciting opportunity to experience a variety of flavors. So next time you're looking for something new to try, your guests are sure to love them!
Empanadas are a great food for delivery because they travel well and don't get soggy quickly. However, keep in mind that the quality of empanadas (especially fried ones) does deteriorate over time. So it is important to be mindful of your eat time versus your delivery time! And don't be surprised if they arrive in pizza boxes! Those are often the perfect dimensions for a large amount of empanadas!
You may be able to if the restaurant uses gluten-free dough but not every restaurant makes that option available. Look for the (GF) indicator next to each selection to know if it is gluten-free.
Typically, three empanadas or two empanadas plus a side are enough for a meal. If you are ordering as an appetizer, two empanadas should be enough per person. But when ordering any buffet-style catering, we recommend ordering for 10-15% more than your headcount. That will ensure that any unexpected guests or folks with big appetites have enough to enjoy!
Are there vegan and vegetarian options for empanada catering?
While there are vegetarian options for empanadas, the dough is often made with butter so most empanadas are not vegan. However, some restaurants may have vegan options. Look for the (V) and (VG) indicators next to your selections to know which options are vegan and vegetarian.
