Ingredients

Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 8 corn sticks

Directions

  1. Stir the cornmeal, sugar, salt, and water together in a mixing bowl until a dough has formed. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, place a spoonful of dough into the palm of your hand; make a depression in the center. Fold a half slice of American cheese into a wad and place into the hole. Spoon some more dough overtop; roll the corn stick into a sausage shape, making sure that the cheese is not exposed. Repeat with the remaining dough and cheese.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Cook the corn sticks in the hot oil until they turn golden brown and float to the top of the oil, about 4 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

The measurements in this recipe are incorrect. If you follow it all you will get is a very soupy sweet mixture that is useless. I know because I followed the recipe to the letter and thats what I got. However the recipe was not a total lost, I tried it again and this time I added the ingredients alittle at a time all the while tasting and checking consistancy. I used the ingredients for 10 servings. I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup instead of 1-1/4 cup. The salt from 1 tablspoon to 1/2 teaspoon and the boiling water from 2-1/2 cups to 1-3/4 cups. The recipe also said to cook 4 minutes per side. That is too long, they do not burn but they do get hard. I cooked them 2-1/2 minutes on each side. And they were perfect

The water should be boiled with the salt and sugar and then the cornmeal should be added slowly while stirring. In that way you can assure a more uniform taste and no clumps. Also, if you apply a little bit of butter to your hands when forming them, the mix will not stick to your skin. Another variation is to use munster cheese instead of American cheese and eliminate the sugar entirely. They are ready when the cheese oozes out of the stick.
