Empanadalette is a breakfast dish originally created here at Ang Sarap, this dish is a combination of an empanada and an omelette. It was created by chance when we were making some empanadas and have some left over fillings, these leftover was left in the fridge and on the next day was used when we were thinking what to fill our omelettes with.

It’s a good breakfast item which can be enjoyed on its own or with some breakfast salad, it’s a complete meal to start your day where you have eggs, protein, vegetables and some carbs from the potatoes. So if you are looking for some new ideas on what to serve during breakfast why not try this and let us know what are your thoughts on it.
