Cream Cheese Arepas
In this video, you’ll see how to make breakfast arepas with cream cheese in an arepas maker—a contraption that’s kind of like a waffle iron. You can also pan-fry your arepas in a skillet, of course. Watch Chef John prepare the dough with milk, cream cheese, and arepas flour, a cornmeal flour that’s also called P.A.N. flour. You’ll see how to shape the dough into rounds. Cooked until golden brown, split open, and served with butter and honey, these arepas are one fantastic breakfast treat, perfect with a cup of hot coffee. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Cream Cheese Arepas. You could also try them breakfast sandwich-style with a fried egg, ham, cheese, and maybe a drizzle of maple syrup.
