DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the milk to almost boiling point with onion, bay leaf and cloves.
  • Cover and allow to cool.
  • Remove Onion, bay leaf and cloves.
  • Bring back to boiling point.
  • Add semolina and stir over a medium / gentle heat until the mixture becomes stiff and difficult to stir.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese and mustard.
  • Pour into a greased dish and spread out to a thickness of about 1 - 1 and 1/2 cm.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Cut into squares. I find that it makes 12 squares.
  • Dip into beaten egg and then roll in breadcrumbs.
  • Fry gently in a good quality oil. I prefer Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Serve with a fresh green salad and mashed potatoes and tomato sauce or ketchup.
  • NB: The quantity of cheese can be adjusted. Reducing the amount of cheese and adding a couple of tbsps of Parmesan works well.
