This my dear is what we call Pastel (pronounced like posh-tew) Is it yummy in my tummy (of coarse most things fried are). salgadinho's are tasty salty treats!

So, first you need masa (which is the flattened dough, which I'm sure none of you are going to make..unless you have a tortilla press, need to buy this, which is sorta like an egg roll dough. I get these in Brasil and they are round, but square ones would work.

*Add cooked hamburger meat (cooled) in the center; you can also add some cheese. dab your finger in some water and seal the edges. fold over and seal by pressing a fork all the way around the edges.

*Next .. you fry in med-high heated oil...until golden brown.

(side note: make sure your meat isn't too hot when making these, because it will make a tear in your dough because of the heat).

This is a typical Brasilian home meal.. enjoy
