"These are my easy to-make delicious empanadas when I am in a hurry, and of course, they are my kids' favorite! Gouda, hard-boiled eggs, and ham empanadas are light and full of flavor, a perfect easy midweek Mediterranean dinner."
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
Combine ham, Gouda cheese, and hard-boiled eggs in a bowl; mix well.
Arrange pastry disks on a flat surface; dab a little water around the rims. Place a large tablespoonful of ham and cheese mixture in the center; fold pastry over and press edge with a fork to seal well.
Place empanadas on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with beaten egg.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
