Arepas are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner at any Venezuelan table and are typically served plain with butter and Apure (Venezuelan cheese). But they can also be grilled, fried or boiled. Arepa dough can also be used to make other Venezulean delicacies, such as empanadas and hallacas (Venezuelan tamales).
How to Bake Arepas in the Oven
Cook each arepa on griddle on medium-high heat 5 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to foil-covered baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 min. or until heated through and done. Fill as directed.
