Empanadas are a delicious way to enjoy a variety of flavors in one bite. Whether fried or baked, these little pockets of goodness are perfect for any occasion, from a quick snack to a main meal. The dough can be filled with a variety or meats, cheese, vegetables and even fruit, depending on your preference. Individually-packaged empanada boxes can allow for guests to mix and match their favorite flavors. While prior to the pandemic, most restaurants served their empanadas in platters (or pizza boxes!), nowadays many offer the option to portion out a snack or meal of 2 to 3 empanadas in individual boxes. So why not try something new and exciting at your next party or gathering? Your guests will be sure to thank you!
Empanadas are great to enjoy on their own but often come packages with side sauces such as chimichurri. They are a great food for catering because they travel well and don't get soggy quickly. But be mindful of your delivery time versus your eat time! Fresh empanadas in individual boxes can build up condensation over time and that can make them lose their crisp shell if they are left alone too long.
When it comes to individually-packaging empanadas in boxes, restaurants offer different levels of flexibility in terms of what they can operationally handle. With at least 2 and ideally 3 empanadas needed to fill someone up for lunch, some restaurants require all of the same type (e.g. chicken) in one box to streamline their operations. Others allow for unlimited mixing & matching (e.g. Sally gets chicken + beef + pork, and John gets beef + mushroom + corn), and some may allow for mix & match but only up to a certain number of permutations.
The name empanada comes from the verb empanar, which means to wrap or coat in bread.
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.
