Lumpia + Empanada = Lumpianada!

Lumpia is a traditional Filipino snack that consists of an egg wrapper filled with meat and/or vegetables and then deep-fried. Empanada, also known as a turnover or a pocket, is a fried or baked food made of pastry dough filled with meat and/or vegetables. In this recipe, I'll combine these two famous recipes into one dish. Let me share with you an easy-to-make snack, which I call meaty lumpianada with egg.

6 lumpianadas


  1. Heat a small amount of oil in a pan. Sautee the garlic, onion and ground pork.
  2. Add in carrots and Baguio beans. Continue cooking.
  3. Once the carrots and Baguio beans are halfway cooked, add the cabbage.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until all vegetables are tender.
  5. Turn off the heat. Transfer the mixture in a bowl and set aside. Allow it to cool down.
  6. On a plate, lay 2 lumpia wrappers.
  7. Scoop 1/3 cup of the lumpianada mixture and arrange it on the bottom half of the wrapper.
  8. Create a well at the center of the mixture; then crack an egg.
  9. Apply water on all sides of the lumpia wrapper to seal.
  10. Repeat steps 6 to 8 with the remaining ingredients.
  11. Heat oil in a frypan. Deep-fry each piece until crispy or golden brown.
  12. Use a food rack or a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  13. Serve while still hot. Pair it with your favorite vinegar mixture or ketchup.
