2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon of Sugar ( add to taste, less or more)
1-1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 cup of melted butter
Bring the water and salt/sugar to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the cornmeal. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring constantly add the melted butter, for 3 to 5 minutes, until thickened. Remove the pot from the heat and add the grated cheese. Then Let the mixture cool a little.
Immediately, take spoonfuls of the mixture and form balls in the palm of your hands. Press them to form like small cigars of about 3 inches long.
Repeat with the remaining dough, until dough is gone.
Heat the oil in a skillet until hot but not smoking and fry until golden brown on all sides. Fry them in plenty of vegetable oil at 375 F. Take them out when they’re golden and place them onto paper towels to drain the excess oil.
