Keto Beef and Pepperoni Empanadas

An empanada is a stuffed bread or pastry with meat (beef, chicken), cheese, onion, and other ingredients. It can be baked or fried in many countries in Latin America as well as Spain.

Some people call it meat pie or hot pocket. Some call it a calzone, which is an Italian dumpling. Whatever the name you call it, we are here to ketofy it and make it low carb for you to enjoy!

Making Fillings
  1. Saute ground beef with salt, pepper and seasoning of your choice and put a side.
  2. Slice onion and cook it in a bit of oil till it is soft and translucent.
  3. Add sausages to frying pan and cook for 4-6 minutes, turning, until cooked through
Making the Dough
  1. In a bowl, melt mozzarella with cream cheese in a microwave. It’s better to stir it every 30-40 sec to make sure it’s not burned.
  2. Add eggs one at a time to the melted cheese mixture, stir well to fully incorporate. Cheese still could be hot so use a spoon. Note: if you have large eggs you might need 3, make sure that mixture is not runny.
  3. Add coconut flour and knead well. Don’t over knead it as it might get hard. It it happened warm it up in a microwave.
  4. Split the dough in six portions. Cover your tray with parchment paper and make six rounds with your hands.
  5. On one side of each round put a bit of sauce (approx. 1 tsp), basil leaves, ground beef, pepperoni and sliced sausage. Cover with the other side of the round.
  6. Put them in a pre-heated 400F oven and bake for 20 minutes or more. Time depends on the size and thickness of the empanadas. It is ready when top is golden brown.
