~ The Arepas are ready to cook. (it was not too messy to mix up & shape)
~ Frying Arepas in rice bran oil...they take 10-12 minutes to cook.....a bit longer than the recipe calls for. We weren't sure what to look for in the finished product...gooey and cakey? How much is too much?
~ Split and stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese....yummy!
(the last leftover arepa was chilled, saved for another day, chopped small & scrambled in eggs. It was kind of like hominy.)
