Dutch Treat: Funchi

(1 Votes)
10 Min

Bacon bits, black-eyed peas and brown sugar give Funchi a rich, savory-sweet flavor. This recipe may contain Deep-South flavor, but it's an old European treat!

What You'll Need

  • 1 can (15-ounces) black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 can (3-ounces) real bacon bits
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup cornmeal

What to Do

  1. Coat a 2-quart bowl with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine all the ingredients except the cornmeal; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Gradually stir in the cornmeal and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture is very stiff and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Pour into the prepared bowl.
  4. Cover the bowl for a few minutes with a serving plate, then invert onto the plate. Slice, and serve warm.

Helpful Hint: Instead of cooking bacon and then crumbling, I found using my kitchen scissors to cut the bacon into small pieces and then cooking it. I tried this once because I don't like getting all that grease on my hands from crumbling after cooking. Works well!
