What is better than a freshly made warm cheesy Sorullito?

The flavor of the sorrullito is hard to describe… Let me just say it is kind of like Polenta, but better - or a hush puppy, but again, better. The outside is beautifully crispy, while the inside is soft, cheesy and moist.

The dough comes together on the stovetop and then is rolled into little cylinders and fried. While it may take a few minutes to roll each one, they are actually very easy to make. Tip: Let the dough cool before rolling it in your hands.

Sorullitos are a versatile dish, as a quick breakfast along a cup of Puerto Rican café con leche (my personal favorite), as an appetizer or a snack, or to go with soup.

Traditionally, sorullitos are prepared without sugar, but sugar sure makes them a whole of a lot better. Also traditionally, the cheese is not shredded, but thinly sliced and rolled into the sorullito - which is complicated, so use shredded. And traditionally they are not served with a dipping sauce. And if serving with soup, skip the sauces.

Only recently are sorullitos served with sauces. The most common sauce is Puerto Rican Pink Sauce (1 cup Mayo, ½ cup ketchup, 1 tbp olive oil, 6 cloves roasted mashed garlic, salt and pepper to taste and a bit of hot sauce.)You can also dip them in French dressing, Thousand Island dressing, Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing, or any homemade sauce you like, even Soy sauce based. Sorullitos are delicious with or without sauce.

It’s breakfast time. I feel like something portable and filling with my coffee. Ahh… sorullitos de maíz is the answer. Easy to prepare, fried and sweet. These little morsels of cornmeal have been savored in the Island of Puerto Rico for generations. see recipe
