For the maize meal:
 3 cups water
 1 ½ cups maize meal
 1 tsp salt
 1 tbsp First Choice Butter

 1 First Choice Brie

Directions:
For the maize meal:
1

Place the water in a pot on medium to high heat, and bring to the boil.

2

Add salt and maize meal and whisk until combined, with no lumps.

3

Turn the heat on low and let the maize meal steam for 45 minutes.

You can use store-bought cherries rolled in bacon, or do it yourself using toothpicks or a kebab stick. Fry the bacon and cherries until golden brown, then set aside.

Once the maize meal is cooked, use two spoons to make a ball. Use your thumb to make an opening for the filling. If the porridge is too hot, let it cool off slightly - don't burn!

Place each ball in the beaten egg, then roll in breadcrumbs and deep fry until golden brown.
