Fun Food Holidays™ April 8th is National Empanada Day
Originating in Spain or Portugal, empanadas are a sweet or savory fried pie that are popular both in Europe and the Americas. In Spain, they tend to be sandwich-size meat-filled lunch fare. While in the Americas, empanadas are often the size of fortune cookies and may have sweet fruit or even chocolate fillings. Deep fried little pies served as a lunch or dinner entree or even dessert?
