How to make it

Crispy on the outside, inside filled with rich, gooey cheese and sweet bites of sweetcorn. These Montgomery Cheddar Balls can be either fried or for a healthier twist, baked in the oven.

  • Boil some water and add macaroni. Cook until al dente
  • In a separate pan, make a roux:
    • melt the butter then mix in the flour
    • add the milk gradually
    • keep the heat on medium and stir to ensure there’s no lumps
  • Add the Montgomery’s Cheddar
  • Add the mustard
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Add the cooked macaroni
  • Add a tin of drained sweetcorn
  • Cover and once cool, put in the fridge for 1 hour
  • Take the mixture out and roll into balls
  • Chill for another 2 hours
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6
  • Roll the balls in egg wash, then breadcrumbs
  • Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden
  • Alternatively you can fry in shallow oil. Fry a few at a time, flipping to ensure they’re golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve these Macaroni, Sweetcorn and Montgomery Cheddar Balls with a side of Cartwright and Butler Tomato Chilli Chutney.
