I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

One of the most popular items to make with P.A.N. Cornmeal is the arepa. A classic Venezuelan specialty, the arepa can be used in place of bread. I decided to make a breakfast sandwich. Normally I would use toast or an English muffin but decided this would be a great chance to see how the arepa compares.

You can fill your arepas with anything and everything. I wanted to make a breakfast sandwich, so I made scrambled eggs with cheese and a dash of Adobe seasoning. I like everything plain and simple. Feel free to be more adventurous and add veggies, meat, or anything you like for breakfast.

I was pretty pleased with this culinary exploration. My arepas were quite doughy, and I would probably make them a little thinner next time. I would also use butter instead of olive oil. Or, maybe just less olive oil. Overall, it’s a very simple process and relatively quick and easy to make arepas. I feel like a food explorer with minimal effort.

With the leftover arepas, we played around a bit. I made a simple grilled cheese, which was delicious. Mike ate some with some lunchmeat. They are versatile and quite interchangeable with bread.

Have you ever tried an arepa?
