Here is Another tasty savory product that uses brioche dough. Like the following Savory Crown Tart, there are innumerable filling possibilities. A few of my favorites include spicy black beans and brown rice; chopped cooked broccoli and garlic with feta cheese; sautéed wild mushrooms with shallots and herbs; and ground lamb and pine nuts cooked with onions, cumin, cinnamon, and ground coriander. Make sure the fillings are cool before putting onto the dough.

Making and Baking the Empanadas: On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into a circle about
Egg wash the surface and bake the empanadas at 380°F for about 16 to18 minutes. Those made with moister fillings will take slightly longer than those containing drier fillings. The empanadas can also be cut square and turned into triangles to finish.
