DIRECTIONS

  • In a pan, put the oil, when it is hot, add the onions, let them fry for some minutes, then add the milk, and let it cook some eight minutes and transfer in a big bowl.
  • Grate the corn grains or blend it only shortly. They still should have some texture.
  • Add the cheese in the bowl (cut into very thin slices), then the beaten eggs, the corn , the salt and the pepper and beat thoroughly. This dough is rather liquid. Check the salt to taste.
  • Put this mixture into a greased pan, and take it to a 180º C (350°F) pre heated oven, until it is golden on top (will take abaout 45 minutes).
  • Let this stand for five minutes and cut in pieces before serving it.
  • Note: I used a 25-35 cm pan. Cooking time is depending from the size of your mold!
