  • 200 g Eskort French Polony, grated
  • 250 g cottage cheese
  • 30 ml fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped.
  • 125 ml white cheddar, grated
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 butternut
  • olive oil
  • 250 ml flour
  • BBQ Spice
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 500 ml bread crumbs
  • 125 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 15 ml vinegar
  • 30 ml golden syrup
  • oil for deep frying


  • Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  • Remove the neck of the butternut and slice into squares – you need about 8 – 10 squares.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the butternut on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 10 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the grated polony, cottage cheese, thyme, garlic, white cheddar, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  • Add a generous amount of the polony mixture onto a butternut square and close with another square to form a sandwich.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the flour and BBQ spice.
  • Dip each of the “sandwiches” into the flour, the egg mixture and coat with bread crumbs.
  • Place the “sandwiches” on a tray and refrigerate for 2 – 3 minutes to allow the coating to set.
  • In a medium sized pot, heat oil over medium high heat and fry each butternut “sandwich” until golden brown and crispy.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the mayonnaise, chillies, vinegar and golden syrup and serve as a dipping sauce on the side.
