You have had a braai and now you have left over maize meal and sheba (tomato and onion relish). So what do you do, you make a bake of course.

This recipe is so fast and easy, and freezes well for when you have unexpected guests or on days you arrive home late from work. Just warm up and enjoy.

Total time




  • 2-3 cups cooked maize meal

  • 1 cup tomato relish

  • 1 cup grated cheese


  • In an ovenproof dish, roll the maize meal into 6 golf ball size balls. I use a ice cream scoop to get an even size.
  • Pour over the relish.
  • Sprinkle the cheese on top.
  • Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Alternatively, make in a freeze proof dish and freeze until needed.
