Cornmeal sticks

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Pour water and salt into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Lower heat and slowly and cornmeal stirring continuously so as not to create lumps.
  3. Continue cooking on low heat until the mixture separates easily from both the bottom and sides of the saucepan.
  4. Remove from heat and add the cheese and blend well.
  5. Scoop up enough mixture to fill a teaspoon and form a ball with the palm of your hand.
  6. Place on a clean flat surface and roll balls in small cylinders roughly ½ in diameter.
  7. Continue this process until you have used all the mixture.
  8. Place on a flat plate or tray covering layers with wax paper and let cornmeal sticks rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Heat oil or shortening to about 375°F in a deep fryer or caldero.
  10. Fry until golden brown and allow to drain on a paper towel before serving.
