Flatbread Ham and Cheese Brazilian Enchiladas

Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Flatout Bread and Society Culinaria.  All opinions however are honest and 100% mine. 

Preparing dinner can sometimes be like putting a puzzle together.  Yes, it takes time… and patience.  But not when you can quickly prepare a healthy family meal like these Flatbread Ham and Cheese Brazilian Enchiladas.  It’s literally life made easy and totally delish!

Flatbread-Ham-and-Cheese-Brazilian-Enchiladas, Panquecas-de-Pão-Sírio-com-Queijo-e-Presunto

How? All that is needed is to grab a bunch of ready-made ingredients such low-fat flatbread, deli smoked ham, cheeses, tomato sauce, and a vegetable salsa, and transform them into a complete dish that will have your family singing its praises… and asking you to make it again and again.

Flatbread-Ham-and-Cheese-Brazilian-Enchiladas, Panquecas-de-Pão-Sírio-com-Queijo-e-Presunto

A dish that requires no special skills. That’s right! Layering ham and cheeses on a flatbread, rolling it up, pouring tomato sauce on top, baking, and then serving with a vegetable salsa on top… nothing could be easier. Using the flatbread instead is certainly much quicker than having to prepare an enchilada batter. Huh? Our enchiladas are inspired by a popular Brazilian main dish, panquecas (similar to a thick rolled crepe, filled with a variety of fillings, and topped with tomato sauce).

But making magic is easy with Flatout flatbread — which is a blank canvas, the perfect partner for helping people of all ages to make healthier choices and tasty dishes like our Flatbread Ham and Cheese Brazilian Enchiladas.  In fact, every Flatout flatbread variety is low in fat and a good source of fiber, making them perfect for wraps, pinwheels, super easy pizzas… and enchiladas too.

All the ingredients in our dish are available in local supermarkets. But you can use this store locator to check the availability of Flatout flatbreads in your area.

It has truly become one of my new fave ingredients on account of its versatility — I can prepare my panquecas in a blink of an eye. With the same flatbread, I can make individual pizzas for another dinner, wraps for my children’s school lunch, pinwheels to serve as small bites while we watch our favorite sport games, and even use it in a dessert…as a substitute for a jelly roll. Options, both sweet and savory, are as unlimited as our imaginations!

Well, for now enjoy our flatbread ham and cheese Brazilian enchiladas… but please, don’t forget to share with me your own creation using this versatile flatbread.  I am always looking for inspiration!

  4. Distribute 1/2 cup of tomato sauce into the greased pirex. Only if desired, stir in a pinch of salt and ground black pepper into the tomato sauce before pouring into the pyrex baking dish. Line up flatbread rolls into the baking dish in one single layer.
  5. Pour the remaining 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce over the flatbread rolls, sprinkle with the remaining 2 cups of shredded cheese, and cover with a greased sheet of aluminum foil. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa by mixing together diced tomatoes, corn, onion, cilantro/parsley, and olive oil in a small bowl (only if you desire to serve enchiladas topped with the salsa). Right before serving baked enchiladas, top with the salsa or vegetable mixture and sprinkle with queso fresco or feta cheese. Serve Ham and Cheese Brazilian Enchiladas hot, and enjoy!

Ham and Cheese Baked Rice (Arroz de Forno Misto)

A ham and cheese baked rice casserole to make dinner a delicious yet easy task.

Are you a fan of ham and cheese sandwiches?  Me too! But what if I told you there is much more that you can do with that combo? This “one-baking dish” Ham and Cheese Baked Rice Casserole is just one of those dishes — and even better, is dinner made easy… with the added plus of leftovers, if desired. 😉

Ham-and-cheese-baked-rice-casserole, Arroz-de-forno-misto

Grab a bowl. Mix cooked rice with heavy cream, egg yolks, seasonings, ham, cheese, and a few veggies. Place rice mixture into a baking dish… and bake for about 25-30 minutes. Meanwhile, go to Facebook or read your favorite magazine. Voilá! Dinner will be ready in the blink of an eye.

I know… This dish has everything, including the taste of life made easier for busy moms/full-time workers like us.

Ham-and-cheese-baked-rice-casserole, Arroz-de-forno-misto

Our ham and cheese baked rice casserole (or arroz de forno misto) and its many variations are popular dishes in Brazil — not only for busy weeknight meals but also for those lazy weekends. First of all, it doesn’t require any special skill from the cook. Second, it is a complete meal all by itself.  Third, it is able to take care of those leftovers while transforming them into a delicious meal.

It may not have “one-pot” or “one-skillet” in its name, but it is definitely part of that same family. It also makes the list of dishes that are naturally gluten-free.

Ham-and-cheese-baked-rice-casserole, Arroz-de-forno-misto

Chicken, bacon, sausage, and shredded jerked beef are just a few of the many variations that Brazilians make use of to transform the basic dish into a new one. In addition, if you choose a different type of rice, such as wild rice, as well as another type of meat, cheese, or vegetable, you can repeat the same recipe yet give it a new name and face.  Basically, the only thing you would need to keep constant would be the yolks, heavy cream, salt and pepper.

To make baked rice casseroles even creamier, Brazilians love to add requeijão (Brazilian cream cheese) to the recipe — although it is not required. We do just because, you know, you can never have too much cheese. 🙂

I will leave you now with the formula to one hero of a dish, and to your much-deserved rest.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease with softened butter and then flour (it can be a gluten-free one) a medium baking dish; set aside. NOTE: If desired, you can place chunks of onion and carrot plus 1 cup of fresh parsley into a food processor and process until obtaining small pieces -- to avoid having to chop them by hand.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the yolks with the heavy cream. Add the onion, carrot, 1 cup of chopped parsley, salt and pepper, mozzarella, ham, and rice. Stir with a wooden spoon until obtaining a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Place rice mixture into the greased/floured baking dish. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top evenly. Bake, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes on the lowest oven rack. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of chopped parsley on top and serve. Enjoy!

X-Tudo — The Brazilian Burger on Steroids… and a $ 100 Giveaway.

America is the land of burgers… and so is Brazil!!!  Huh?  To be more specific: Brazil is the land of the X-Tudo — a hamburger on Steroids!!!!  And X-Tudo (pronounced: sheess-TOO-doo) is what I have for you today!  How about that?

X-Tudo (translated as ‘cheese-everything’) is a TALL burger with many toppings.  In fact,  x-tudo is so tall that you can’t get your mouth, no matter how big, around the whole burger. Yes, eating a x-tudo is a fun, deliciously messy experience which one must have at least once in life… It is so good that it makes every single calorie consumed worthwhile.  Just like any other burger, x-tudo is about taste — not aesthetics…

X-Tudo -- The Brazilian Burger on Steroids!!!

In Brazil, X-tudo is available at snack bars and on the streets.  There are many variations of  x-tudo e.g.: X-Caipira (sausage, egg, tomato, and onion), X-Salada (hamburger patty, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), X-Bacon (hamburger patty, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato), X-Frango (chicken breast, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), etc… But my favorite is still the classic which is pretty much composed of a juicy hamburger patty, melted cheese, fried egg, deli ham, bacon, corn, lettuce, tomato, and shoestring potatoes — all sandwiched between a burger bun. 🙂  It is often eaten with mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard.

Does it sound good to you? Well, the good news is that you don’t need to travel to Brazil to eat x-tudo.  FBTY bought it directly to you!

Have a ball eating my classic X-Tudo!

Instructions
  1. Prepare the burger patties: In a large mixing bowl, combine together the ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin. Mix until well incorporated. Divide the ground meat into 4 equal portions of 6 ounces each. Form each portion loosely into an approximately 3/4-inch-thick burger patty.
  2. In a large cast-iron griddle pan, spread and heat the oil until just beginning to shimmer. Cook the burger patties for about 3 minutes or until slightly charred on the first side. Then, flip over the burger patties and cook for 3 minutes or until slightly charred on the second side. Top each patty with one slice of cheese and cover the pan so cheese can melt (about 1 minute).
  3. To assemble the X-Tudo: Spread mayonnaise on the inside of the buns. Top the bottom part of the bun with one lettuce leaf, 1 tablespoon of cooked corn kernels, one slice of tomato, one burger patty with melted cheese, one fried egg, one slice of ham or salami, a sprinkle of crushed or ground black pepper, 2 strips of bacon, and shoestring potatoes. Squeeze on ketchup and deli mustard, and then top with the other half of the bun. Serve x-tudo immediately with guaraná soda or beer. Enjoy!

Pizza a Portuguesa

Pizza Empanadas (Pastel de Forno com Recheio de Pizza)

I love empanadas, although it has been a while since I have last eaten them. I also love pizza…This is why we’ll be making two dishes in one: Pizza Empanadas!!! Excited?

Because of the American football Super Bowl which is coming up soon, I decided to make the pizza empanadas dough ahead of time for freezing, so that they can simply be filled and baked on the day that they will be served.  What a time saver!

If you weren’t already aware, empanadas are not exclusively a dish from Hispanic Latin America, but are also widely esteemed in Brazil, including both fried (pastel frito) and baked (pastel de forno) versions with sweet and savory fillings.  Brazilians call these beauties “pastel” (in Mexico, a similar pastry is called an empanada, and through Mexican influence that is also the term by which the pastries have generally come to be known in English).

The baked empanadas (pastéis) are usually served with a cup of coffee (cafezinho), a glass of guaraná soda, or beer, while the fried ones are preferrably served with sugarcane juice, guaraná soda, or beer.   They make for a quick afternoon snack or a great appetizer for parties and bar conversation (conversa de botequim).

I confess that I do prefer the baked empanadas (pastel de forno) for obvious reasons – they are less messy and greasy to prepare.

That is why our pizza empanadas are baked.   There is a wide variety of possible fillings, but I picked what we call the pizza filling: ham, cheese, tomato, and oregano.  It is like having empanadas and pizza in the same dish. 😉 Don’t you?

Well, enjoy our pizza empanadas and have a great time with your friends and family watching the Super Bowl.

Instructions
  1. In a food processor, mix the flour and salt together. Add the butter, egg, and water until a clumpy dough forms. Do not overwork the dough!!!
  2. Form a ball, wrap in plastic wrapper, and chill in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes.
  3. Then, unwrap and roll out the dough into a thin sheet over a floured surface, working from the center of the dough to the edges. Cut out round disc shapes using a round medium-size or small mold or cutter.
  4. Use immediately or store in the freezer for up to 3 months (In this last instance, pile one disc on top of the other with plastic wrapper in between them. Wrap the pile well and store in a ziploc bag. Thaw in the refrigerator before filling the pizza empanadas).
  5. For the filling of the pizza empanadas (In Brazil, we call this type of filling "pizza"): In a small bowl, mix both the ham and cheese. Reserve. Assemble the pizza empanadas, adding a spoonful of the ham and cheese mixture on the center of each empanada disc. Top with 2 halves of a tomato and sprinkle a little bit of oregano. Brush the edges of the pizza empanada discs with the egg whites or a little bit of water although the whites are a better "glue" to seal the pizza empanadas. Fold the empanada discs and seal the edges gently with your fingers.
  6. Then, press the edges of the pizza empanadas with a fork to crimple. Lightly brush the top of the pizza empanadas with the egg yolk thinned with 1/2 teaspoon of water. Layer the pizza empanadas in a single layer in a deep baking pan or pyrex dish. Cover with aluminum foil (don't let it touch the pizza empanadas). Let the pizza empanadas rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until ready to bake.
  7. Pre-heat the oven to 400º F (200º C) and bake for 10 - 15 (small) or 15 - 20 minutes (medium) or until golden. Serve pizza empanadas warm by themselves, with your favorite dipping sauce (I used chimichurri sauce) plus a drink, or with a fresh salad.
Recipe Notes

Please note, prepackaged refrigerated phyllo dough, or an empanada dough from your local Latin American grocery store can be substituted for dough made from scratch, if desired.
