METHOD
 

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 12-hole muffin tin well with grease spray.

 

For the pap cups:

2. Bring a large pot with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt to the boil. Stir in the White Star Super Maize Meal while whisking until a thick and smooth mixture forms. Cover, reduce to medium heat and allow to cook for 30 minutes. *Chef’s Tip: Keep an eye on it to ensure that the pap does not burn.

3. Remove the pot from the heat, add the butter, cheese and salt and pepper and stir to combine.

4. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, divide it evenly between the 12 muffin cups and press it up the sides of each hole to form a cup-like shape. Bake the pap cups for 20-25 minutes to set and crisp up slightly. Remove the tray from the oven and set aside.

 

For the eggs, beans and mushrooms pap cups:

5. Divide the baked beans into the base of 4 of the pap cups and top it with the fried mushrooms. Crack an egg on the top of the filling and sprinkle over the salt and pepper.

 

For the cheesy tuna pap cups:

6. Combine the tuna, onion and cheese together in a small bowl. Divide the filling evenly between 4 of the pap cups and sprinkle over the salt and pepper.

 

For the boerie and chakalaka pap cups: 

7. Divide the cooked boerewors pieces evenly between the remaining 4 pap cups. Top with an even amount of chakalaka and sprinkle the cheese over the top.

 

To serve:

8. Bake the pap cups for 10-15 minutes until slightly golden on the top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.

9. Serve the pap cups with your side of choice and ENJOY!
