Philadelphia, PA - If you've made empanadas and want to reheat them, you'll want to use your microwave. You can reheat empanadas at the same temperature that you used to bake them, but you will want to watch them carefully and keep an eye on the reheating process. You can reheat empanadas in the microwave by layering them with greaseproof paper. You'll need to check them after a few minutes to ensure they're hot.
How to Reheat Empanadas
To reheat empanada, first, make sure they've completely cooled. If you can't wait that long, you can place them on a cookie sheet. This will keep them from sticking together and help preserve their crisp and savory filling. If you freeze them individually, you can also place them in a freezer bag. This way, they'll last up to three months without losing their flash of pudding.
Another way to reheat empanadas is to bake them. Although a microwave oven works better than a conventional oven, empanadas will retain more of their flavor if baked. Simply line them up side by side on a wire rack in an oven-safe dish. You can also place the empanadas on a grill rack. When baking empanadas in the microwave, heat them for about 7-10 minutes at 300degF. If you'd rather heat them up quickly, you can cover them with aluminum foil for the last two minutes of the cooking time.
Once cooked, empanadas will stay in the freezer for up to three days at room temperature or three months. To store them in the freezer, place them in a plastic or air-tight bag. Remember that it's best to keep them in the refrigerator, but if you have leftovers, you can reheat them at room temperature or keep them warm for up to 3 months.
