Easy Arepas

10 Min

What's an arepa? It's melted cheese sandwiched between two crispy corn pancakes -kind of like the Mexican version of a grilled cheese sandwich. Well, I finally figured out an easy way to prepare them!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 slices (4½ ounces) Mexican-flavored American cheese
  • 1 (7½-ounce) package frozen corn toaster muffins (6 muffins), thawed

What to Do

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.

  2. Place 2 slices of cheese on the flat side of each of 3 toaster muffins. Top each with another toaster muffin and place in the skillet.

  3. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.


Corn toaster muffins can be found either near the baked goods or in the frozen food section of your supermarket next to the frozen waffles and pancakes.

Sizzling Home Fries

The best home fries are still the ones made in diners, you know the places that are nicknamed "greasy spoons." There's just something special about the taste of potatoes slung around a sizzling hot grill and mixed with the flavors of eggs and bacon that can't be beat. Wait until you try these - they're a breakfast (or anytime) winner.
