      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. It's wiser to prepare the filling before cooking the mielie meal

    Grate the follwing:

    Bacon - chop (not too finely) for 3 secs, speed 3

    Scrape down the sides & chop for a further 2 secs, speed 3

    Set aside

    Mushrooms - chop for 2 secs, speed 3

    Set aside

    Cheese - chope for 5 secs, speed 7

    Set aside

    Onion - chop for 3 secs, speed 5

    Add the bacon & mushrooms back into the bowl with the onion

    Season with salt & pepper

    Add the butter & olive oil & saute for 5 secs, 100 degrees, speed 1

    Once cooked, set aside, wash & dry the bowl


  2. Turn the oven onto 180 degrees

    Add 1000g of boiling water in the TM bowl with salt & butter & bring to the boil for 25 mins / varoma / speed 2

    (While it's cooking, add the 600g of water to the mielie meal & stir all the dry meal until it becomes a paste)

    At 20 mins / turn the heat to 90 degrees & through the hole in the lid, with the blades continuing to turn, add the mielie meal paste

    Allow to continue to cook.  After 15 mins, scrape downt the sides & continue to cook 

  3. Butter your chosen pie dish

    Put a layer of mielie meal on the bottom of the dish

    Cover the mielie meal with a few tablespoons of corn kernals & chopped tomatoes

    Then put a layer of the mushrooms, onions & bacon

    Then put the next layer of mielie meal, continued with the toppings

    Once all the topping are on, pour over the cream (I used a knife to make a few cuts to make sure it gets to the bottom) & sprinkle over the cheese.

    Bake for 45 mins - 1 hour until cheese is golden brown



A super delicious meal or the perfect dish to accompany a braai (bbq)
