An empanada is a type of pie filled with meat and vegetables. Usually empanadas are deep fried, but my version of it is simpler, and a little cheaper. It's baked and instead of using pie crust I was able to make bread dough without yeast!

So, find out how I made this amazing empanada bread.


  • filling
  • 1 can sardines in tomato sauce
  • 2-3 Tbsp sandwich spread
  • bread
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • butter for greasing
  • pinch of fine salt for garnish


  1. Start with the filling by simply mixing sardines and the sandwich spread. Set aside.
  2. For the bread, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  3. Add in oil, blend into the dry mixture.
  4. Ad

  5. Pour in water gradually. Take note that it is important to add water just little by little to achieve the consistency of the dough.
  6. Grease hands with butter or oil to avoid dough from sticking into your hands.
  7. Knead for a short while just to coat the mixture evenly.
  8. Take a small ball out of the dough and flatten it into a plate.
  9. Fill it with sardines mixture.
  10. Fold the dough to cover the filling and seal the edges using a fork.
  11. Place bread into a greased pan and garnish with melted butter and a pinch of fine salt.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes at 180 C.

  14. Serve hot!

Note: If there's a leftover filling, just heat it in a saucepan until it simmers and serve as Empanada dip.
