      Thanks for a really great recipe! Made these for Sunday lunch using 500 gr of last night's leftover lamb roast, shredded in the food processor. Added 1C onion gravy, 1C mashed potatoes and 1C mashed turnips-- with a little curry powder for flavour. I cut each puff pastry sheet into 4 squares, folding the square into a triangle over 1 heaped Tbsp of filling. Used egg wash and baked for 25 min on 200C f/forced. This made 16 empanadas with enough filling left to freeze for another batch. I popped the 12 we didn't eat in the freezer on the baking tray and will transfer them to a ziploc bag when they are solid. Should be great to take to work for lunch!

      We enjoyed this simple meat pie using left over lamb from a roast. Since I didn't have any puff pastry, I substituted a prepared pie crust with very good success. The empanadas needed 30 minutes to cook and brown and turned out flaky with the filling cooked perfectly. Since the ingredients seemed not to have much in the way of seasoning, I decided to add a tablespoon of Dijon mustard, since that's my DH's favorite condiment. I think it worked well and added a nice tang to the otherwise plain ingredients. Thanks for a very enjoyable lunch.
