How to Make Arepas con Huevos


  1. Mix masarepa and salt. Add hot water and melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit 10 minutes.
  2. Reserve 2 tablespoons of dough. Shape rest of dough into 4 balls.
  3. Place one ball between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and press with a heavy skillet until 3" in diameter and 1/3" thick.
  4. Heat oil in skillet until small piece of dough sizzles. Fry arepas until golden on each side, 2-3 minutes. Place on paper towel.
  5. When cool enough to handle, partially split arepas. Break egg into small bowl, then pour into arepas. Seal split area with extra dough.
  6. Fry arepas about 3 minutes per side - less, if you like runny eggs, more if you like firm eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
