Arepas Sammies
Servings: 4 Active Time 25 mins Total Time 25 mins


  • Four 1/4-in.-wide corn arepas
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh epazote

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook arepas according to package directions. Using a paring knife, carefully cut arepas in half. Divide mozzarella and ham among arepas. Place in oven to keep warm.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Crack eggs into the skillet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until whites are set and yolks are partly set, about 1 1/2 minutes. Carefully flip eggs and cook until yolks are just barely set, another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove arepas from oven, open, and slide eggs and epazote on top of ham.
