Last night was the first time we had one of the famous empanadas of Uruguay. Actually, we had a couple one day (cold) and another day we had some frozen ones that we heated up. But last night was the first night we had empanadas from a restaurant in Salinas that specialized in them (Empanadas Santa Fe).
OK, so we ordered about 5 each and they make 36 varieties. When we got home, how could you tell one from another? Let's take the quiz. Look at the 2 empanadas pictured above. Which one is carne con panceta and which one is quieso con longaniza? Obviously you have a 50% chance of being right, but to be sure- look at the top crust. There are markings and they give you a "legend" with pictures to match. The top is Longaniza (with a single "twist" and the bottom is panceta (with 2 cuts at the top and one on each end).
I was not familiar enough with the process to order over the phone and have them delivered. They will deliver for about $1, but next time we will try sitting at home and enjoying delivery.
