Arepas....from Columbia

We watched a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives episode that featured
 this little bread/fried cake:  Arepas from Columbia
You know us, we just had to try them ourselves.  =)
We bought the pre-cooked white cornmeal at Fiesta (grocery store).

Get the recipe here:

~ 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.)
