Sorullos or Sorullitos are a fried cornmeal-based dish[1] that is a staple of the Puerto Rican cuisine. Sorullos are served as a side dish or as appetizers, and are sometimes stuffed with cheese[2] or mashed bananas. They are sometimes served with mayoketchup or dusted in confectioners' sugar.

Description

Sorullos are made of a mix of hot water or milk or coconut milk, salt, and cornmeal, formed as sticks or logs, then fried or cooked in an olive oil and butter mix. The flavor is usually lightly sweet, but can also be savory. Sorullos are best served hot, and the texture is crisp on the outside and dense and soft in the inside.

Sweet sorullos contain cornmeal, sugar, butter, and hot milk or coconut milk. These sweet sorullos are sometimes filled with mashed bananas or cheese. The most commonly used cheese is queso de papa (longhorn-style cheddar), but other cheddars as well as queso de freir, queso blanco, or mozzarella are sometimes used. Sweet sorullos are sometimes sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.
